Dominica: This COVID-19 pandemic changed lifestyle & working style around the globe, a new format ‘Work from Home’ flourishing in all companies & most of the businesses are being operated from home.
On Friday, the small Caribbean island of Dominica launched a “Work in Nature” programmme in order to give an extended stay visa that allows tourists to relocate to Dominica and work remotely from Nature Island for up to 18 months.
This programmme is a golden opportunity for those who are stuck in their homes since last year, & working in congested spaces.
According to the Government of Dominica, this would be a boon for children, who will continue their education on the beautiful island instead of one room.
Also, this would give relocated families an unforgettable cultural experience & make their lockdown lives an indelible one for all the right reasons.
As Dominica is the Nature Island of the Caribbean, it offers one of the most diverse natural spaces, waterfalls, beaches, over 365 rivers. The lively environment of Dominica is rejuvenating and would give a unique feel to the work from home culture.
As per the government and tourism ministry of Dominica, the new Work in Nature Programme also aims to provide a lively and natural environment to people who feel restricted in small spaces & feel blocked working from home in their home nations.
