Want A Year In Paradise? Barbados Wants You! Here Are Details On Escaping the Pandemic!

Want To Escape To Barbados For A Year?

Well, when you see an island this gorgeous, the answer is, of course, YES!

And guess what? They want you as well!

This Exotic Island Wants You!

This Caribbean Island has come up with a unique offer, all because of the worldwide pandemic. They have created a year-long work visa for one reason: to lure remote workers during the pandemic!

This story is getting lots of pickup, and since I love to travel, it caught my eye as well! As Newser reports:

“To boost its economy, Barbados is creating a work visa for foreigners that would allow them to work on the island country for up to a year at a time. Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley made the announcement about the 12-month “Welcome Stamp” last week, noting that it would “allow people from the United States, Europe, and Latin America to come and do their jobs digitally for a couple of months and then go back home, if they feel they can work better in a more relaxed atmosphere such as next to a beach.” She added that this was a way for tourists to get around some of the hurdles of short-term travel, per a government website.”

Barbados has managed to get through the pandemic is good shape. Newser continues:

“There have been fewer than 100 COVID-19 cases overall in Barbados as of last Friday, with just seven deaths, per Johns Hopkins University. Insider cites a Barbados Tourism Marketing release that says all travelers from high-risk countries—those with at least 10,000 new virus cases in the previous week, along with community transmission—are “strongly encouraged” to take a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of their trip to the island. If visitors arrive without a negative test result in hand, they’ll be required to take one and will be sent into quarantine they’ll have to pay for until the results come back (usually within two days).”

Then, get ready for a year in paradise!

It’s a really interesting offer, especially for those who must work from home for the unforeseeable future…you all know that I have posted about countries who have made offers to encourage immigration in the past:

Italy made an offer last year for foreigners to move to the country and get paid to do so!

You can see more details here:


France has also tried to get people to move to smaller villages in that country as well:

  6. That is a GREAT opportunity for those who are working a job that can be done remotely. I would love to jump on an offer like that, but my husband’s current job isn’t remote. However, I can’t wait to hear about this experience from those who are able to make the most of it. I’ve never been to Barbados before but it’s SO beautiful in those pictures. Wow!

  8. I hope this doesn’t backfire on Barbados, by ‘importing’ many new cases of the virus.
    Best wishes, Pete.
