Have you ever imagined about working on a sunny beach with a breathtaking view while warm sands are tenderly caressing your bare feet?

Of course, you have…in your gloomy office during the 5th boring meeting for the day….

And the big surprise is just around the corner….. It is not just a dream anymore…

Over the past few months, the Covid-19 pandemic caused a negative impact on the tourism revenue of some Exotic spots. Fortunately, they found out a really smart way to deal with these unaffordable circumstances. They used the situation to provide the remote workers with special visa programs and in such wise to inject their local economies with fresh money flows.

From Caribbean sea through Eastern Europe to Dubai, here is a list of 7 most delightful destinations offering remote workers incredible experience:


Anguilla beach

Anguilla, a British Overseas Territory in the Eastern Caribbean, comprises a small main island and several offshore islets.  Renowned for its spectacular and ecologically significant coral reefs and beaches and thanks to the government program, remote workers could live, work and enjoy to the vibrant nature of that Caribbean island.

Successful applicants will be permitted to spend between three months and a year in the country. Those seeking to stay for up to a year have to pay $2000 (€1694) per person, which includes costs related to testing for visitors, additional health staff and accommodations where guests will quarantine.

For families looking to stay there, the cost is $3000 for up to four people and $250 for every additional family member. Individuals who wish to stay for less than three months pay $1000 (€847), and families of four pay $1500 (€1271), plus $250 (€212) for every additional family member.

At present, Anguilla is giving priority to people coming from “low-risk” countries, where the prevalence of COVID-19 is less than 0.2% of the population.

Anguilla has reported three positive coronavirus cases and no deaths so far during the pandemic, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has deemed it to have a “very low” COVID-19 risk. Visitors are required to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test conducted within three-five days prior to arrival date, undergo a mandatory test and health screening upon arrival, remain quarantined at their approved location for at least ten days and obtain a negative PCR COVID-19 test to be released from quarantine.
