Barbados wants long-term remote workers

The Barbados government has come up with a plan to help its tourism industry while giving UK residents the chance to escape the new daily routine of working from home.

it says it will offer British nationals who work remotely the chance to make Barbados their home for a year, under a new ‘Barbados Welcome Stamp’ scheme.

Prime Minister Mia Mottley created the scheme to increase the country's Gross Domestic Product and boost the tourism industry on the island.

The scheme is in the first stages of development and hasn't been finalised yet.

Mottley has also not yet revealed when the scheme will be open for applicants, so those who are interested will need to monitor developments. Barbados started welcoming international travellers on 12 July.

Those who choose to visit the island will have to undergo mandatory tests for COVID-19 upon arrival and will need to isolate until the test results are provided.
