Non-Barbados citizens are now given an opportunity to live and work remotely from Barbados for 12 months. This opportunity is provided for under the Welcome Stamp Visa programme which went live on 24 July 2020. The Remote Employment Bill, 2020 was passed to give effect to the Welcome Stamp under the laws of Barbados.
The 12-month Welcome Stamp offers a new opportunity to work in a different part of the world for non-citizens whose work is location-independent. In addition, the island is a mature tourist destination with a wide variety of tourism amenities including attractions and accommodation. Workspaces can be acquired by non-citizens as well.
