In an effort to jumpstart economies decimated by the Covid-19 pandemic, several Caribbean islands including Antigua and Barbuda and Barbados are offering digital nomad visas to attract remote workers to their shores.

Add Curaçao to the list.

The Dutch island, just off the coast of Venezuela, is launching a remote work visa for foreigners who can show proof of overseas employment (non-Curaçao based companies) and evidence of sufficient funds to support themselves throughout their stay. The visa is valid for six months, with an opportunity for extension, and successful applicants will not be subject to local tax.

Other requirements include the purchase of valid international travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage, a return ticket for entry into Curaçao, as well as the presentation of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure and a completed Passenger Locator Card.

The application costs $294 USD and will take approximately two weeks to process.
