Apply for Work from Bermuda Certificate

As of August 2020, Bermuda's Ministry of Labour through the Department of Immigration began a program similar to Barbados' program which offers a 1-Year Residential Certificate to allow temporary residents, such as Digital Nomads, to work remotely from Bermuda. Non-Bermudan Post-Secondary students are also allowed to complete their higher education from Bermuda. "If you are working remotely from home, please take the opportunity to explore the option of working remotely from Bermuda for the next year. Bermuda is safe, Bermuda is friendly, Bermuda is close and Bermuda is beautiful," wrote E. David Burt, JP, MP, Premier of Bermuda.

Applicants must be 18+ (unless dependents), not have been convicted of a crime, possess health insurance coverage, proof of employment or proof of student status and sufficient income. It's important to know that the cost of living in Bermuda is high and expats always caution people considering a move to Bermuda about it. One expat said, "don't [move], unless you have... a housing allowance of at least $2500. You will not be able to rent ANYTHING for less than that, and a decent apartment will cost $5000 up. Everything is VERY expensive, especially food." Another expat said, "you will need up to $2500 per month for housing if living alone, $400 for mobile, internet and TV, $500 per month for gas, electricity, which leaves you with enough for food and clothes. Plus capital outlay of $3K for moped or twice that for car."

"King Edward Memorial Hospital is the only general hospital on the island. It has the usual departments one would expect and most basic problems can be managed on island. Many people however choose or are advised to go overseas for surgery or complex problems. All medical care on island is private, bar a minority of local people with just the basic government health cover. The hospital is on the outskirts of Hamilton city and within 12 miles of any part on the island," wrote one expat in a report about healthcare in Bermuda
