Digital nomads are welcomed to Antigua and Barbuda with a current visa designed for teleworkers. With the growing list of destination to travel, Antigua and Barbuda are looking to entice digital travellers to work from paradise.
The Caribbean dual-island nation announced this week that it would provide remote workers making minimum $50,000 a year to work and live in the islands for up to two years for a new Nomad Digital Residence program.
Aruba and Barbados have already announced such initiatives earlier this year for people to work from anywhere.
Antigua and Barbuda’s program grants special resident status to digital travellers who can dispense the means to second themselves and every accompanying family member. The visa is also offered to those whose firms are not based in the country and are in different locations. The price for a single applicant is $1,500. The application cost for a duo is $2,000 and for a family of three and more is $3,000.

The ones who can get digital nomad residency in Barbuda and Antigua will be granted admittance to 365 beaches, excellent Wi-Fi, cellular coverage, world-class diving, deep-sea fishing, and ample rental car options.
