Cayman Islands joins Barbados in promoting long stays and inviting visitors to come work remotely. There’s nothing quite like sticking your toes in soft sand as you look out at the crystal clear water of the Caribbean. And now, Cayman Island follows in Barbados’ footsteps by introducing its new “Work Remote Program”.
Similar to Barbados, the Cayman Islands will allow visitors to stay for a a long period of time through its work remote program. Unlike the Barbados’ “Welcome Stamp” program for a year, the GCCP Global Citizen Certificate allows for up to two years. This program allows for visitors to avoid normal visa requirements to live and work in the territory.
Cayman Islands’ Global Citizen Certificate (GCCP)
The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism (CIDOT) announced a Global Citizen Concierge Program (GCCP), is designed to accommodate “digital nomads looking to take advantage of the flexibility provided by remote work.” After all, who wouldn’t want to work in paradise?
To apply for the program, certain information must be submitted and requirements must be met. In terms of income, applicants must have a minimum household income of US$100,000. Additionally, applicants with an accompanying spouse must have a minimum income of US$150,000.
