While the D7 program is typically very popular among retirees from outside the European Economic Area (EEA), the program is open to people of all ages over 18 years – provided that you can meet the economic self-sufficiency requirement, either through stable passive income, adequate savings, or through a combination of the two.

As of 2020, the program is increasingly becoming the EU residency program of choice for foreign remote workers, digital nomads, affiliate marketers, online entrepreneurs and a host of other professionals earning adequate passive, non-salaried income.
