The Caribbean country of Barbados is introducing a “12-month Barbados Welcome Stamp,” which would allow visitors from overseas to stay for an entire year and work remotely.

Mottey acknowledged how a short term trip is difficult during these times when there are restrictions due to coronavirus. However, a year-long trip will sort this problem out. 


The country is opening up its borders to international visitors from Sunday 12 July. People can travel from the country to the UK without having to quarantine. 

BRB, going to find that passport of ours.
