In line with the current trend of obtaining visas for people working remotely, the Caribbean country of Antigua and Barbuda has become the latest nation to open its doors to people seeking a change of scene. According to The Independent, the country is ready to welcome digital nomads in the midst of the pandemic – which has made it clear that for many jobs, there is no need for a designated office, but instead they can work remotely from any part of the world and still perform the work.

Exit reports that the island country is launching a ‘Nomad Digital Residence Scheme’, allowing eligible applicants to stay for up to two years. Its Prime Minister Gaston Browne said in a statement: “You can work in any part of the world from Antigua as if you were in your office or home.”

But, you are only entitled if your winnings fall into a certain group. The program is open to those earning at least $ 50,000 (Rs 36,66,130) per year – applications cost $ 1,500 (Rs 1,09,983.90) for a single applicant, $ 2,000 (Rs 1,46,645.20) per couple and $ 3,000 (Rs 2,19,967.80)) for a family of three.

In order to reap the benefits of the program, applicants will need to provide proof of health insurance and “pay local market rates for access to any health care during their time on the islands”.

The outlet further reports that the country has remained largely safe from the coronavirus, with only a few cases spread since the onset of the pandemic. “We have learned how to detect infected people quickly, how to treat them quickly, and how to control the spread of the community,” Browne was quoted as saying.

With this, Antigua and Barbuda joins the ranks of many other nations that have offered visas for distance work in pandemics. Earlier, Barbados had introduced Barbados Welcome Stamp under a new government scheme and had begun receiving applications for international tourists, tempting them with the opportunity to work remotely on the beautiful beaches islands for up to a year.
