“Global Citizen Concierge provides the perfect opportunity for remote workers to live the life of their dreams on our idyllic shores and amongst our Caymankind people,” says Hon. Deputy Premier and Minister of Tourism, Moses Kirkconnell. The Government has been successful in the face of the global health crisis and the Cayman Islands has emerged as a safe haven within the Caribbean. With WFH (work from home) culture coming into prominence, businesses are embracing the flexibility of a digital existence, with many employees seeking a change of lifestyle. Remote workers can now spend up to two years working and living in the Cayman Islands. These remote workers will be getting a chance to reinvigorate their monotonous 9 to 5 work schedule with the sun, sea and sand of the Caymans.  

This global lockdown has taken a severe toll on people so now most major corporations have adopted flexible work policies, allowing their employees to work from wherever they can be productive. Its world-class infrastructure and first-rate amenities, makes the Cayman Islands an ideal destination for digital nomads. These “Global Citizens” can start their day with a stroll along the Seven Mile Beach, snorkel with stingrays in the clear waters of the Caribbean during lunch and be “home for dinner” with the best that the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean can offer. It’s an opportunity to live at the pace of island life with the income of a big city employee.
