It may not be wise to put travel plans on hold due to COVID. And reaffirming this belief is the island nation of Dominica, which is now offering new Work in Nature (WIN) extended-stay visas to remote workers. Ideal for folks willing to combine work and leisure, the facility will allow them to relocate to the island for 18 months.
Located between Martinique and Guadeloupe, Dominica is home to rain forests, volcanoes, waterfalls, natural hot springs, sandy beaches, as well as the Caribbean’s first long-distance hiking trail. It is rightly called the “Nature Isle of the Caribbean” and is an apt choice for a workcation or getaway.
In addition to the natural amenities, Dominica also offers high-speed internet and technology services, modern healthcare facilities, and opportunities for impact volunteer programs with NGOs and private sector entities. Once here, visitors can also enjoy discounts and duty-free charges on select items.
To apply for the WIN visa, applicants must show an annual income of at least $50,000 or the equivalent. Both individuals and families can apply for the program (for a non-refundable application fee of $100), with visas costing $800 for singles and $1,200 for a family.
Fancy shifting base to this nature-laden Caribbean wonder?
