Personnel Today quotes Rose Carey on Italy’s new digital nomad visa

The Italian Digital Nomad Visa was introduced on 4 April, permitting foreigners – including from the UK – to remain in the country for up to a year. 

The Italian government has defined a digital nomad as a citizen of non-European Union states “who carries out a highly qualified work activity with the use of technological tools capable of allowing them to work remotely, both as a worker self-employed or as a collaborator or employee of a company even if not resident in Italy."

The visa is aimed at those with high levels of expertise, similar to the qualifications required for the EU Blue Card

Rose Carey, Partner and Head of the Immigration group comments for Personnel Today:

As part of a range of measures to combat underpopulation, Italy has recently introduced a digital nomad visa. Italy isn’t the first European country to do so, after the pandemic several countries introduced a similar visa type with the hope that it will attract newcomers and boost the economy. The visa category is aimed at highly skilled workers and will most likely appeal to young professionals.

It is unlikely that the UK will follow suit and introduce a similar digital nomad visa type as the current government is concerned with the increase in the net migration figures and unlikely to want to introduce a new visa category. The UK also has a Global Talent visa for highly skilled tech entrepreneurs and workers and they can be employed or self-employed in the UK.
