Antigua & Barbuda Offering Island Visas For Remote Workers


These days a lot of folks are working remotely, but just because you’re working from home, doesn’t mean you have to actually work from your home. And if you’re looking for a more scenic spot to do your job, two Caribbean islands just made it easier for you to do just that.

Antigua and Barbuda are now offering a new visa, the “Nomad Digital Residence,” which will allow eligible remote workers to stay on the gorgeous islands for up to two years. It costs $1,500 to apply for the visa (couples are $2,000 and families $3,000), and to be eligible you must earn at least $50,000 a year.

“As a multicultural society, our people have been welcoming visitors to our country for almost a hundred years. We know how to look after guests and make them feel at home. That’s why we are rated as one of the top tourism destinations in the world, as research would confirm," Prime MinisterGaston Brownenoted. "So, we invite you to come to paradise. We are confident you will agree that you made the right choice."

Antigua and Barbuda aren’t the first Caribbean islands to make such an offer. Earlier this year, Barbados and Bermuda also offered year-long visas to remote workers.
