We’re not going to lie, the world is in shambles at the moment and all we really want is to be baking on a tropical island, sipping Margaritas by the goblet. Enter Barbados.

This remote eastern Caribbean islet, famous for its flying fish and palm tree-dotted beaches, wants you to move out of your urban digs and onto island time thanks to a new working visa. The country’s Prime Minister, Mia Amor Mottley announced that a “12-month Barbados Welcome Stamp” was in the works which will essentially allow visitors to hang out on the island for an entire year and work remotely.

The new visa has come into fruition off the back of the global pandemic, an event, the Prime Minister states fast-tracked the world’s ability to work digitally from various locations. 

Obviously, international travel is still at a complete standstill for now so the sandy beaches will have to wait for the moment, but once travel restrictions ease and this 12-month “Welcome Stamp” is approved—you’ll know where to find us.

You can keep up to date with COVID-19 travel restrictions right here.

And these are all the countries opening their borders for a post-Corona holiday.
