(ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA) — Looking to change your work from home setup? How about taking it to the beaches of Antigua and Barbuda?

Travel and Leisure reports that the Caribbean dual-island nation has joined the list of destinations allowing remote workers to live and work there as part of the Nomad Digital Residence Program.

The program gives special resident status for up to two years to workers earning at least $50,000 a year. The cost for a single applicant is $1,500, while the cost for a couple is $2,000; for a family of three or more, it’s $3,000.

Those who get accepted will have access to the country’s beaches — there are no fewer than 365 of them.

“The long-stay program will allow persons and their dependents to reside on the island of Antigua, enjoy the ease of working from a ‘COVID-controlled,’ luxury destination, and also be able to enjoy all the wonderful amenities that the island has to offer,” Antigua’s Nomad Digital Residence site reads.
