We are not fully adjusted to remote working yet, but we know it’s here to stay for a while. No one is too excited about it, except maybe Barbados — the Caribbean island plans to offer a 12-month remote working visa for people who would like to work from Barbados.
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley in the same announcement explained how short-term travel is becoming difficult due to quarantine procedures in different places and why this led Barbados to come with the new “Barbados Welcome Stamp.” The visa allows the travellers to work from Barbados for a 12-month period, with each period limited to 2 months.
The Prime minister concluded that “The travellers can come and work for 2 months, go back and come back as they wish. Barbados is looking to bring more such wonderful exercises to open the Caribbean island to travel lovers.”
Who wouldn’t want to drop everything and shift their work desk to a remote island? This could mean one thing though — the hilarious zoom background fails and the compulsive work desk shopping might be a thing of the past.
