Barbados welcomes…
HNWIs and Digital Nomads

All are welcome and we believe that everyone has a role to play in our development. Barbados offers specific programmes and visa opportunities for non-residents who wish to live and work in Barbados, a few of which are outlined here.

High Net Worth Individuals

High net worth individuals (HNWIs) and their dependents can take advantage of the Special Entry Permit (SEP) programme which allows you to live and/or do business in Barbados (work permit carries an extra cost). There is no obligation to live here, and SEP holders can come and go as they please.

The SEP is granted on an indefinite basis to eligible HNWIs aged 60 and over, while those under the age of 60 may be granted a permit for a defined period.

Digital Nomads – Barbados Welcome Stamp

Non-nationals interested in working remotely from Barbados, can apply for a Barbados Welcome Stamp – a 12-month remote-working visa. You need to be resident and employed in a country other than Barbados, and
continue to pay your taxes there. More details are available on the dedicated Barbados Welcome Stamp website.

More information on these and other visas and routes to residency can be found on the Barbados Immigration Department’s website.
