Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley recently announced that the Bajan government is launching a 12-month program under the branding of the Barbados Welcome Stamp to allow visitors to work remotely for up a year at a time in the country. Not only will this benefit the country's economy by allowing tourists — and their cash — into the country to live, eat, and shop, it also helps remote workers enjoy this "unique" time in the world.
In announcing the scheme, the Prime Minister said, "You don't need to work in Europe, or the U.S. or Latin America if you can come here and work for a couple of months at a time, go back and come back. But in order for those things to truly resonate, what does it mean? It means that what we offer has to be world-class, and what we continue to offer is world-class."
