Applying For A Digital Nomad Visa In Bermuda

Bermuda is an amazingly beautiful country, with many beautiful beaches, beautiful Caribbean weather, clear skies, and crystalline waters, providing you with many different activities for tourism while there. To add a bonus, they have recently added a digital nomad visa to its many attractions. So now you can live a dream vacation lifestyle while working remotely.

A digital visa nomad in Bermuda has many benefits. One of the most attractive things is that it is a tax-free visa. If, by chance, while there you get sick, don’t worry about it too much, Bermuda has an excellent healthcare. I can’t forget to mention, forget slow connections, Bermuda has one of the best internet connections in the Caribbean.

THE BERMUDA DIGITAL NOMAD VISA

Bermuda is one of the countries that provides visas for digital nomads. The digital nomad visa in Bermuda, known as the “Work from Bermuda Certificate,” was introduced in July 2020. The work from the Bermuda certificate is considered one of the best programs for you to work remotely.

The Bermudan digital nomad visa gives you 12 months to live and work remotely. It is ideal for working while living a dream vacation in the Caribbean. It can also be renewed depending on your situation, although you must submit a new application. If you wish to stay longer than 12 months, apply for their Residency Program. The program qualifies you for an Economic Investment Certificate (EIC) program. The certificate promotes and makes it possible for you to invest significant sums of money in Bermuda's economy.

The Economic Investment Certificate gives you and your family the chance to live and work on the island for five years, allowing you to see the potential returns on your investments. After that, you can apply for the Residential Certificate (RC), which grants you the right to live in Bermuda indefinitely.

LIVING IN BERMUDA

The island still has a tropical feel but also exudes professionalism and business-oriented customs. This may be a significant advantage if you don't want to be sucked into the island's party scene and want to strike a balance between working well and having fun.

Food-wise, a lot revolves around fish, including the codfish breakfast, fish chowder, Bermuda Fish cake, and the famous fish sandwich. Alternatively, you might sample the non-fish specialties like Hoppin' John or black rum cakes. You can explore the 400-year-old British colonial and maritime heritage.

You may find cozy spots to set up your workstation daily in Hamilton, the island's capital, which has excellent internet and co-working spaces. After a hard day of work, you'll have the pleasure of unwinding at beach clubs.  

There are several beaches in Bermuda where you may engage in a wide range of activities, such as swimming, snorkelling, diving, sunbathing, mingling, and exploring. To the southern side, exposed to the South Atlantic Ocean, is where you'll find the finest surfing waves and sand. The north shore, protected by a coral reef on the edge of the extinct volcano that gave rise to Bermuda, is more serene, which makes it perfect for swimming and relaxing in the water.

You won't run out of things to do in Bermuda throughout your 12-month stay. From discovering stunning beaches to rock climbing to viewing humpback whales. Bermuda has several places for adventure, including trails, golf courses by the sea, and many different activities. Go for a hike, bike, play golf, ride horses on the beach, watch a cricket game, and much more. When you want to unwind and relax, you may indulge in a treatment at one of the island's luxurious spas.
