Welcome Stamp


Welcome to Barbados!

On behalf of our beautiful island of Barbados, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has been a tremendous challenge to people around the world, we believe it has also opened opportunities.

We recognize more people are working remotely, sometimes in very stressful conditions, with little option for vacation. Our new 12 months Barbados Welcome Stamp is a visa that allows you to relocate and work from one of the world’s most beloved tourism destinations.

We believe we have something very special to offer on this little rock we call Barbados. Our friendly people, professional services, commitment to education, and important safety and security, all make Barbados an ideal place to live for both singles and families.

Thank you for considering making Barbados your new home.

Mia Amor Mottley, Q.C., M.P. Prime Minister of Barbados.
