The Spanish government is trying to lure digital nomads to its ghost towns.

Sep 08 2021

The Spanish government is trying to lure digital nomads to its ghost towns. Nearly half of Spain’s 8,131 municipalities are at risk of dying out due to low population, prompting the country to launch the National Network of Welcoming Villages for Remote Workers, a scheme that aims to attract foreign workers to small rural villages with a 12-month work visa specifically for digital nomads. The government will also offer tax breaks and visa extensions. YPulse research has found that over half (55%) of 20-38-year-olds in the U.S. plan to continue working from home post-COVID, and a recent study from the European Commission shows that 40% of the EU’s workforce is now working remote full-time, compared to only 5.4% in 2019. This is fueling an increased interest in the digital nomad lifestyle, which was already gaining popularity pre-pandemic. According to an MBO Partners report, the population of digital nomads rose nearly 50% between 2019 and 2020—reaching 10.9 million people. Now, young consumers looking for an idyllic rural lifestyle may be able to find it in Spain. (Wired UK)
