Islands the Caribbean Sea are famous luxury holidays, not for being places work. However the two-island nation Antigua and Barbuda is hoping people will come and live and work there two years. Its government is offering a two-year work visa "digital nomads". These are people who can work anywhere the world via their laptop computer. The nation's new "Nomad Digital Residence Programme" is now available anyone who wants to work in paradise. To be eligible the visa (and the sun-drenched beaches), workers must have an income of least $50,000 per year. They must also show they can look any family members on the programme for two years.
Antigua and Barbuda joins a list other nations offering remote workers the chance to experience a different way life. Countries Georgia, Barbados, Estonia and Bermuda have all set similar programmes in the past year. Antigua and Barbuda's Prime Minister said his country boasted many attractions workers. He said it has high-speed Internet and a world-class telecommunications system. He said: "This means that you can work any part the world from Antigua as if you were your office or home." He also said his country has quality accommodation, fantastic restaurants, 365 beaches, historic sites, beautiful scenery, gyms, water sports, fishing and deep sea diving.
