Bermuda Wants YOU to Work Remotely From the Island
Are you a digital nomad who is tried of working from home? Are you ready to leave your current dwellings for something more refreshing? You're in luck, because Bermuda wants you.
On July 17, the Ministry of Labour announced they "will amend the eligibility for a One (1) Year Residential Certificate to allow persons who are able to work remotely from Bermuda, such as Digital Nomads and to allow Non-Bermudian Post-Secondary Students to complete their higher education from Bermuda."
Starting August 1, individuals will be able to apply for this residency on the government's website.
The eligibility requirements for applicants are as follows:
•over the age of 18;
•demonstrate good character and not have conviction for an indictable offense;
•possess valid health insurance;
•demonstrate employment with a legitimate firm or their own company registered and operating overseas, which does not operate in Bermuda, in the case of a remote worker;
•provide evidence of enrollment in a Research, Undergraduate, Graduate or Doctorate Program, in the case of a Student;
•demonstrate sufficient means and/or continuous source of annual income without the need to engage in gainful employment in Bermuda.
There is a one-time fee of the certificate, which is $263.
