Nomad Digital Residence Visa Program

Become a digital nomad

Antigua and Barbuda currently offer a long-stay visa program called the “Nomad Digital Residence”. This program is designed for persons who are able to work remotely and are desirous of doing so from a safe Caribbean country with access to modern amenities, including a sound telecommunications infrastructure. Eligible persons will be granted a special-resident authorization that will be valid for up to two (2) years in the first instance.
“Antigua and Barbuda represent the perfect place to escape and enjoy all the space you need – space to move, space to think and space to work. The Nomad Digital Residence program encourages persons to broaden their horizons and consider Antigua and Barbuda when thinking of work from home options.”

– Charles Fernandez, Minister of Tourism & Investment

Under the programme, eligible persons can live and move freely throughout Antigua and Barbuda for up to two years, and benefit from Antigua and Barbuda’s no personal income tax status.
