Global travel site Big 7 Travel has released the official list of the best cities (and islands!) to work from remotely in 2021 and Antigua and Barbuda made the list at 24.
As the global shift to remote working shows no sign of switching back, workers across the world are leaving behind the traditional office setup to WFH permanently – and for many, that means relocating! In the US, at least, 20% of the current workforce are freelance workers and that number has been predicted to grow to 40% by the mid-2020s. So, where will people want to answer emails from?
Rankings took into account core data of affordability and internet access (gathered from Nomad List) alongside other variables, including countries offering specific Digital Nomad visas, and where to find the coolest co-working spaces and expat friendly communities.
24. Antigua and Barbuda
Last fall, the dual-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda announced that they are now welcoming remote workers under their brand new Nomad Digital Residence Program which is just a fancy way of saying ‘digital nomad visa.’ Thanks to this, as long as you can meet their income requirements and prove that you are self-employed, you can live it up in the Caribbean for two years. Spend your days working from white sand beaches and spend your evenings sampling the local rum varieties; then, on the weekends hit up a hiking trail or a cooking class. The world, or, two islands at least, are yours. Curious about how the digital nomad visa works?
