Countries Offering Remote Working Programs

Working while traveling has become much more accessible in the past year, and many countries are taking advantage of this to boost tourism.

Countries have launched visa programs that allow workers to come live and work. However, many require employment outside of the destination, proof of sufficient funds to sustain a long stay, medical insurance and negative COVID-19 tests. 

For instance, while tourists cannot travel to Montserrat at the moment, the Caribbean island’s Remote Workers Stamp allows remote workers to stay for up to 12 months.

“The response to this initiative has been extremely positive,” said Warren Solomon, Montserrat’s director of tourism. “The geographic spread of the applicants matches our main international source markets, namely the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Europe.”

Those who apply will know within a week whether they are approved to stay on the island. Upon arrival, they must test negative for COVID-19 and quarantine for 14 days.

The Bahamas have also launched a new 12-month residency permit titled the Bahamas Extended Access Travel Stay (BEATS) program.

With this program, remote workers and students can move across 16 different islands in the Bahamas. Workers will need to show proof of employment, while students will have to provide proof of school enrollment and sufficient funds to cover their living and traveling expenses.

Similar to most countries with this type of program, travelers will also need a negative COVID-19 test to apply for a Bahamas Travel Health Visa, an additional requirement.
