The tourism department of Cayman Islands has launched the Global Citizen Concierge Program (GCCP), which allows digital nomads to stay in the Caribbean paradise for up to two years.
Meanwhile, Antigua and Barbuda and Bermuda are also offering a visa targeting people to work on a white sandy beach in the Caribbean.
According to the website, the Global Citizen Concierge Program will help “secure your opportunity to live in the Cayman Islands for up to 24 months.” As well as to “assist you with booking with our national flag carrier, Cayman Airways, via Miami or receive your details for confirmed private jet service.”
Upon arrival, travellers will need to check-in for quarantine, but once they are out, there are three islands and tons of beaches to explore. Moreover, there are currently no masks or distancing restrictions on the island.
