Work remotely from Barbados!

Barbados Welcome Stamp

On June 30, 2020, the Barbados Government announced the introduction of the 12-month Barbados Welcome Stamp. This new remote work programme establishes a visa to allow people to work remotely in Barbados for a maximum for 12 months. The visa is available to anyone who can meet the visa requirements and whose work is location independent, whether individuals or families.

The island is 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, and has a population of approximately 287,000, equivalent to the London borough of Greenwich.

Barbadians, also known as Bajans, live all over the island, with the capital Bridgetown the most densely populated.

Homes in coastal areas are considered the most desirable, so they're also the most expensive. Options include staying in a villa, apartment or hotel, or renting a house.


There is something fun and exciting for everyone in Barbados

For action-packed beach time, there's surfing, scuba diving, and jet-skiing. Or since that can be thirsty work, you could tour the local rum distilleries.

Bajans like to "fête" or party at any time of the day with music and food at organised events.

An area in the southern part of the island, Oistins, is popular among locals and visitors alike, especially for Friday night dancing. You can sample the local dishes, including fish fresh from the sea, or take your pick of the bars.

Businesses got the all-clear to reopen in mid-June, and people are allowed to gather again if they wear face masks and practise social distancing of 1 metre (3ft).

As with every place touched by coronavirus, some aspects of social life have taken a hit - especially large events. Fans have missed out on first-class cricket at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown.

How about if you have school-aged children? Not a problem says Ms Mottley, as schools will be able to accommodate overseas students aged 18 and under. That said, it's going to cost you.

In the Barbados Welcome Stamp application, if a child is to attend school in Barbados, parents need to apply for a student visa, pay a fee of BDS$300 (£118), and state the name of the school.

Public (or government) schools are normally free for Barbadians, but long-term visitors are being asked to pay a stipend. The alternative is private schools, which charge their own fees.

Teaching in Barbados is often modelled on the British system, though at least one school offers International Baccalaureate programmes. The island is known for its high standards in education and has a 99.9% literacy rate. The World Economic Forum has ranked Barbados as having the joint ninth-best schooling system.
