Islands in the Caribbean are famous for luxury, not for being places of work. However the nation of Antigua and Barbuda is hoping people will come and work there for two years. It is offering a two-year work visa for "digital nomads" - people who can work anywhere in the world on their computer. The new "Nomad Digital Residence Programme" is available for anyone who wants to work in paradise. To be eligible for the visa, workers must have an income of at least $50,000 per year. They must also be able to look after any family members on the programme for two years.
Antigua and Barbuda joins a list of other nations offering people the chance to experience a different way of life. Countries like Barbados and Estonia have set up similar programmes recently. Antigua and Barbuda's Prime Minister said his country had many attractions. It has high-speed Internet and world-class telecommunications. This means you can work in any part of the world from Antigua as if you were in your office or home. The country has great accommodation, amazing restaurants, beaches, historic sites, beautiful scenery, gyms, water sports, fishing and deep sea diving.
