The government of Curaçao is introducing ‘@HOME in Curaçao’, welcoming travelers that are looking for a temporary home away from home. The program accommodates remote workers, extended-stay visitors, and investors allowing them easier access to Curaçao.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, destinations are looking for opportunities to welcome visitors under these special circumstances. Curaçao is committed to providing a safe, comfortable haven for these groups.
And the timing could not be better as more than half of the global workforce is currently working remotely. And companies have already announced that they would let employees work remotely in the foreseeable future. Working from home has some major benefits, like a better work-life balance, better productivity, and no time wasted on commuting. Just imagine the benefits of working and living in Curaçao.
These benefits include the island’s open and market-driven economy where foreign investors can own property where there are no restrictions with regards to repatriation of profits or invested capital. The island is strategically situated outside the hurricane belt and has several large natural harbors.
It also has an international airport with excellent air connections to the Caribbean region as well as to South, Central, North America, and Europe. Other sectors in addition to Tourism with potential for investment are Port & Maritime Services, Creative Industries, Transnational Education, Financial sector as well the ICT sector.
Investing in a second home is very popular. An apartment or house will give investors a decent return on investment when rented out to tourists. It also makes for a good excuse to regularly visit the island.
The application costs $294, and applicants need to show proof of employment, international travel insurance (there’s also an option to buy local insurance), and comply with the island’s COVID requirements. They also must submit a recent declaration of assignment, if they have their own company in the country of origin, or recent employer declaration from the employer in the country of origin, or a recently certified copy of an employment contract.
And applicants can be sure to enjoy benefits such as stable banking and judicial system, moderate accommodations costs, excellent healthcare including a state-of-the-art hospital, and no taxation for remote workers. Not to mention the secure, safe, and friendly island environment and internet peace of mind with excellent connectivity and a full-fledged data center.
