Dominica has launched its extended-stay visa program, Work in Nature (WIN), which provides the opportunity to work remotely for up to 18 months on the island.
The WIN program is targeted at remote workers, digital nomads, academics, families, and persons on sabbaticals who are seeking a healthier work-life balance that Dominica can offer them.
The island offers high-speed internet and technology services, modern health care facilities, educational options for families, and opportunities for impact volunteer programs with NGOs and private sector entities.
These make Dominica the perfect choice for remote working while embracing the natural wonders on your doorstep. Visit waterfalls or hot springs, take nature walks or exhilarating dives, experience the local cuisine, embrace a new culture, and make new friends.
Additionally, Dominica’s COVID-19 protocols have kept the infection rates very low, and their handling of the pandemic has been exemplary
The program also offers attractive incentives, such as duty-free on selected items and discounts from various service providers.
As the program gains popularity, the island envisions a WIN Village – a remote worker community with various types of accommodation from luxury to moderate, an array of support services, shared social and entertainment spaces, and co-working spaces.
Applications can be accessed online via www.windominica.gov.dm and cost US$100.
Responses will be provided within 7 days and confirmed applicants will have a 3-month grace period to relocate to Dominica.
Fees for the Visa are US$ 800 for individuals and US $1200 for families.
The Honourable Denise Charles, Minister for Tourism, International Transport and Maritime Initiatives indicated that, “This is one of the initiatives which will help boost our tourism industry in our phased tourism recovery approach, while providing a safe environment for persons to work remotely in a tropical environment. Stakeholders and island partners have all collaborated to provide an attractive program which will assist with economic recovery. This is your opportunity to discover the many wonders of Nature’s Isle!”
