Antigua And Barbuda Launching A Two-Year Digital Nomad Visa
Antigua and Barbuda is the latest country offering digital nomads a visa to work remotely.
The Caribbean island announced that it would allow remote workers earning at least $50,000 a year to live and work there for up to two years through its Nomad Digital Residence Program.
In his pitch to remote workers, Prime Minister Gaston Browne touted the countries low COVID-19 infection rates and island-lifestyle.
“We have successfully managed the COVID-19 pandemic with an exceptionally low number of fatalities, a low rate of infected persons, and a high rate of recoveries,” he said. “More importantly, we have learned how to detect infected persons quickly, how to treat them rapidly, and how to contain community spread.”
Browne added that accommodations on the island have a common feature: they are comfortable and welcoming, and nothing is far away.
“Supermarkets, restaurants, 365 beaches (no exaggeration), historic sites, fine dining restaurants, magnificent landscapes, gyms, water sports, fishing, deep-sea diving – all will be nearby wherever on Antigua you choose as your residence,” he said.
The visa costs $1,500 for a single applicant, $2,000 for a couple, and $3,000 for a family. Applying is easy with a simple form to fill out.
