Dominica has joined other Caribbean countries by offering extended stay work-vacations. It officially launched its extended-stay visa program, ‘Work in Nature’ (WIN), an opportunity to work remotely for up to 18 months on the island. Dominica hopes to welcome professionals and entrepreneurs through the WIN program, which is geared toward remote workers, digital nomads, academics, families and people on sabbaticals seeking a healthier work-life balance.
The island offers high-speed internet and technology services, modern healthcare facilities, educational options for families, and opportunities for impact volunteer programs with NGOs and private sector entities. WIN program participants can visit waterfalls or hot springs, take nature walks or exhilarating dives, experience the local cuisine, embrace a new culture, and make new friends. Dominica’s COVID-19 protocols have kept the infection rates very low.
The program offers attractive incentives, such as duty-free on selected items and discounts from various service providers.
Dominica has been recently awarded the “Safe Travels” Stamp by the World Travel and Tourism Council, which reassures that the destination’s health and safety protocols meet globally accepted standards.
