Want to relocate to Barbados? Here is how!

Always dreamed of living on a Caribbean Island, but didn’t know when, where or how to relocate? Well, the time is now, and the island is Barbados. 

In August 2020, the Prime Minister of Barbados invited the world to apply to the ‘12 month Barbados Welcome Stamp’ - a special work permit that allows you to relocate to Barbados and ‘work from home – in Barbados’ for up to a year.

This once in a lifetime opportunity is one of the positive opportunities that has come out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here is what you need to know on qualifying for the welcome stamp and how to relocate to Barbados.
