Thank you so much for this detailed and thorough post! This will be immensely helpful. I am considering getting a German freelancer visa so I can freelance digital marketing, website updates, graphic design, etc. If I obtained the German freelancer visa, would I have to live in Germany or could I freelance all over Europe (such as in Ireland ), non-Schengen and Schengen areas both for unlimited amounts of time? The reason I’m asking is I might have a client lined up in Ireland but I’d have to be there for about 6 months. Thanks!
