If you think the Barbados Welcome Stamp is quite expensive, you can apply for another Caribbean nation; Bermuda. This British Overseas Territory near the US also offers not only remote workers to live here but also students! If you have enough funds, you can enjoy the endless seas, sun, and beaches in paradise. Here’s how to get a Work from Bermuda Certificate that’s quite similar to a Digital Nomad Visa.
Bermuda doesn’t anymore require visitors to have visas or waivers. However, you might need to be visa-exempt to enter from the United Kingdom, or have a valid multiple-entry US, UK, or Canada Visa. You’ll mostly have one as you can only fly and enter Bermuda from those countries. The stay is usually 21 days to 3 months; however, if you have a Work From Bermuda Certificate, you can live up to a year!
