Montserrat is now welcoming digital nomads and work-from-home professionals to settle there for up to 12 months. It has joined the global destinations courting professionals who can work away from their home country.
The idea of the year-long Montserrat Remote Workers Stamp is to give professionals and entrepreneurs the opportunity to experience a work-life-vacation balance, trading in a routine at-home environment for exotic black-sand beaches and rich cultural offerings during the pandemic.
Application fees for the program are US$500 for individuals and US$750 for individuals accompanied by a maximum of three family members. Candidates must show proof of full-time employment, an annual income of minimum US$70,000 and up-to-date health insurance coverage for applicants and accompanying family members.
Located in the Eastern Caribbean with a total area of just 39.5 square miles, the green mountainous Montserrat possesses a great network of hiking trails and dark-sand beaches. It also has an active volcano, the spectacular Soufriere Hills Volcano.
