This past month gave us quite a few glimmers of hope for a brighter future when it comes to immigration, relocation, and the world of work:

Spain is simplifying the process of granting permits and visas for foreigners working in the audiovisual industry. This comes some months after their announcement of a digital nomad visa, so exciting times ahead for those looking to relocate to this sunny corner of Europe.

Germany is taking steps to dust off their ancient citizenship law and bring it into the 21st century. The country’s new coalition is planning to allow multiple citizenships and easier naturalization. We don’t know about you, but we’re excited.

Portugal banned after-hours texts from bosses to employees as part of a sweeping update to its labor laws. Like a handful of others, the country is making a bid to turn itself into a haven for remote workers. We had some opinions on this, so we covered it on our blog and would love to hear your thoughts on this new law and others like it.
