Barbados offer year long visa for those who work remotely

by LLB staff reporter

The Caribbean island of Barbados are offering remote workers the chance of relocating under new proposals that are being considered by the government.

The scheme is being considered as short term travel has become difficult due to testing restrictions.

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley of Barbados said she is looking into plans to introduce a “12-month Barbados welcome stamp.”

This year long visa will allow visitors to work remotely from the island for a year at a time.

Mottley said, “You don’t need to work in Europe, or the US or Latin America if you can come here and work for a couple of months at a time; go back and come back.”

Tourism in the Caribbean island makes up around 40% of their GDP which has been impacted by the pandemic.

Brits do not need a visa to enter or stay on the island, but they can only stay for a period of time.
