Are you working from home? Are you looking to make the most of it? Well, the Barbados government is making quite the mind-blowing proposal for remote employees!

They are giving you the opportunity to relocate your position and work from home/ the Caribbean! How insanely cool is this opportunity?

Prime Minister Mia Mottley is considering the introduction of a “Barbados Welcome Stamp” which gives the change to international travelers to live on the island and work remotely for up to a year.

We see you packing up your bags already!

Ms Mottley is proposing such a cool idea seeing that short-term travel has become a difficult and hectic thing, in a time of the pandemic.

According to Travel Market Report, tourism makes up 40% of Barbados’ GDP and 30% of its workforce is employed in the sector. Which is why the pandemic really impacted their economy in a negative way.

Barbados is set to open its borders to international visitors on 12 July, and Mottley proposed offering the option of a year-long stay in time of the flights’ resumption.

If given the chance, would you go for such an opportunity?

Published

By

Oxford Business Group (OBG) said in a report that some emerging countries, including Egypt, are expected to become favorable touristic destinations after coronavirus restrictions have been eased gradually.

After all, tourists are looking for affordable and accessible options, so they’re going for the countries with flexible labor laws and to the countries that have its touristic destinations safe and ready to welcome back travelers as their GDP depend heavily on tourism.

The OBG report also said that the Radisson hotel chain, as an example, announced recently that it is still keen on its expansion plans in Africa, and is targeting Morocco, Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa in specific.

Moreover, some emerging markets are well placed to leverage an anticipated shift in consumer preferences, according to the report.

“Egypt is again seeking to take advantage of this; the country has been promoting travel to archaeological sites in Upper Egypt, offering discounts on tickets and a reduction in visa fees for travellers who fly into the region directly”, the report said.

“Conferences and other business-oriented events will likewise be difficult to organise for the foreseeable future, given the ongoing necessity of social distancing. Indeed, as early as late March, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry estimated that some 500 trade shows had been cancelled as a result of Covid-19 crisis, resulting in an estimated €23 billion in lost orders,” the report added.
