Work From Home … In Bermuda

As working from home appears to have become the norm right now and perhaps long into the future due to the ongoing global pandemic, professionals are on the hunt for quality destinations where they can work remotely for an extended time.

And what better place to do that than Bermuda.

The island’s Work From Bermuda Certificate program allows travellers 18 years of age and older to move to the island for a year while working remotely. And the program also includes the ability to travel back and forth seamlessly.

The application fee us US$263 per person and there is now a special section on Bermuda’s website — www.GoToBermuda.com — that includes a link to the online application portal.

Bermuda’s Premier, David Burt said: “Bermuda is safe. Bermuda is friendly. Bermuda is close. And Bermuda is beautiful. If you are working remotely from home, please take the opportunity to explore the option of working remotely from Bermuda for the next year.”

The Premier continued: “To date Bermuda has successfully managed the Coronavirus Pandemic and our COVID-19 testing regime is the most stringent in the world. This has kept transmission of the virus to a minimum which allows our residents and visitors flexibility not seen in other jurisdictions.”

He explained that: “As a holder of a residential certificate you will be a long-term visitor in Bermuda and we are ready to share our vibrant culture and unique brand of hospitality to cure the Coronavirus blues. No need to be trapped in your apartment in a densely-populated city with the accompanying restrictions and high risk of infection; come spend the year with us working or coding on the water.”

And he added: “On behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda, I look forward to welcoming remote executives, self-employed entrepreneurs and university students engaged in remote learning to our shores.”
