Montserrat launches Remote Work Program

BRADES, Montserrat – The pristine Caribbean island of Montserrat joins the global marketplace of destinations courting home-based professionals, with the announcement of the Montserrat Remote Workers Stamp.

The 12-month long distance-work visa, launched January 29 at a press conference held at the Montserrat Cultural Centre, will give professionals and entrepreneurs the opportunity to experience a unique work-life-vacation balance on what has been described as one of the Caribbean’s most “stand-out ” destinations–trading in a routine at-home environment for exotic black-sand beaches and rich cultural offerings.

“The global pandemic has changed how we live and work, and as multinationals and leading startups across the world accelerate their rates of digital adoption, the need to be physically present to fulfill professional responsibilities has been redefined,” explained Montserrat’s Deputy Premier, Dr. Samuel Joseph.

 “We know there are people in various parts of the world who now have the ability to work from home and are actively looking for a change of environment. The remote worker program is not only inviting but encouraging them to come to Montserrat to work and at the same time be more than a visitor but a part of the local community.

Application fees for the Stamp are $500 for individuals and $750 for individuals accompanied by a maximum of three family members. Program candidates must show proof of full-time employment, an annual income of minimum $70,000 and up-to-date health insurance coverage for applicants and accompanying family members, for eligibility.
