The World Citizenship Report 2023 has listed the “Work In Nature Programme” of Dominica as one of the most popular digital nomad visas of 2021. The report, which was released last week by CS Global Partners says that many people believe the WIN visa programme was life-changing for them.
The report added that many Caribbean nations implemented digital nomad visas in order to attract visitors and boost the tourism industry. However, the Work in Nature Programme that allowed the opportunity to live and work remotely in Dominica for 18 months remains the most popular.
The World Citizenship Report also quoted various participants of the WIN Programme. One such participant was Olivia a US National who described her time in Dominica during her Work in Nature as life-changing.
“There is this beautiful paradise right outside my window that I didn’t have before. Being here is about being content with what really are the things in life that bring quality and happiness to you,” added Olivia. The Work In Nature Programme also allowed foreigners to enjoy the culture, lifestyle and standard of living of the Nature Island.
“Once you have dipped your toes into the Caribbean Sea, you would not be blamed if you fall head over heels in love with the region. The culture, lifestyle and standard of living on offer on those island nations appeals to many, it is no surprise that the Caribbean’s second citizenship programmes are so attractive,” World Citizenship Report 2023 mentioned.
With the launch of exciting visa programmes, and also the ability to obtain alternative citizenship, the Caribbean continue to remain the cradle of second citizenship programmes.
The World Citizenship Report also added that in the first quarter of 2019, around six percent of long-term stay bookings were made by people in the Caribbean through Airbnb. The demand almost tripled in 2022, which is why Airbnb partnered with the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) in mid 2022 to promote the region as a viable destination to work and live in through the “Work from the Caribbean” campaign. The World Citizenship Report added that over 24 million Americans plan to become digital nomads in the next two to three years. As per their findings, digital nomads visit three countries per year.
