Bahamas BEATS is one of the Caribbean’s most accessible Digital Nomad Visa programs, as it is open to self-employed people, remote workers (with no minimum income requirement), and remote students. Remote students have access to additional resources through the University of the Bahamas, such as a 3-credit Bahamian Cultural Experience Course, library, technology access, and student activities (estimated additional cost: $1,785).
Pink sand beaches, crystal clear water, succulent conch and local food festivals, and even the exuberant swimming pigs in Exuma captivate visitors to the Bahamas. This tropical paradise is a convenient time zone for American remote workers and offers direct flights to the U.S.A. and U.K.
