TRAVEL | Bermuda Opens Its Doors To Digital Nomads

Starting August 1st, you can apply for a ‘One Year Residential Certificate’ at a cost of 263. There are a handful of requirements, of course, but none are particularly serious:

  • Over the age of 18;
  • Demonstrate good character and not have conviction for an indictable offence;
  • Possess valid health insurance;
  • Demonstrate employment with a legitimate firm or their own company registered and operating overseas, which does not operate in Bermuda, in the case of a remote worker;
  • Provide evidence of enrollment in a Research, Undergraduate, Graduate or Doctorate Program, in the case of a Student;
  • Demonstrate sufficient means and/or continuous source of annual income without the need to engage in gainful employment in Bermuda;

For most digital nomads, it should be fairly easy to prove these. No criminal records, a track record as a digital nomad, etc. The least one is perhaps the most logical. The idea here is to bring people, and their incomes, into Bermuda, without taking work from native Bermudians.

The visa also applies to college students who can’t study in person but are enrolled, which is pretty cool too.

There is one hitch, however.  As of this writing, there are no hotels in Bermuda. So right there the cost of living for the average digital nomad goes up significantly. There are certainly other options, like AirBnB or perhaps house sitting, but living on the budget in such an expensive place is going to be a bit of a challenge.

Then again, looking at those beaches and that water, perhaps the challenge will be worth it.
