Spain – Digital Nomad Visa


Do you live in Spain but work remotely for a company or a business (including being self-employed) located outside of Spain? You might be familiar with the Digital Nomad Visa.

The Digital Nomad Visa requires you to have an undergraduate or postgraduate degree from a university, college or business school or have at least 3 years of work experience in your current field of activity. Your spouse, partner, dependent children and dependent relatives can also obtain this visa.

Certificate of Good Standing for an Australian Company

Our clients who work for Australian companies or are self-employed under a corporate structure must prove that the company exists in Australia. To assist in this process, we provide our clients with a Certificate of Good Standing.

The Certificate of Good Standing includes the certificate of registration and the current and historical extract. We obtain these documents directly from the Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), the regulatory authorities for companies in Australia. The Certificate of Good Standing confirms that the company is a current registered legal entity in Australia and, where applicable, is not subject to winding up proceedings, liquidation or deregistration.

You may want to check with the specific requirement of your intended visa or with the agent/agency assisting you with your application whether further information is required. In most cases, the Certificate of Good Standing attaching the ASIC documents will be sufficient.

Apostille for Spain

Aside from proving that the company exists in Australia, the Certificate of Good Standing must also be stamped with an apostille in Australia.

An apostille is a stamp that is recognised internationally by countries who are members of the Apostille Convention. Australia and Spain are members of the Apostille Convention. This means documents from Australia must be stamped with an apostille before they will be accepted in Spain. In Australia, the apostille is issued by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

We regularly provide the notary service and the apostille service. This means we will issue the Certificate of Good Standing (with attached ASIC documents) and arrange for it to be stamped with the apostille for use in Spain.
