Adverts on Instagram boast: “Barbados offers you the backdrop of idyllic beaches, tropical landscape and work-life balance.
“And, you’ll still be earning your global salary.
“Barbados has a stable economy, good healthcare facilities, world class education and reliable and fast internet connectivity.”
The Barbados Welcome Stamp costs £1,500, or £2,300 for a family visa, and children must enrol in local schools.
Remote workers must earn at least £39,760 per year, have health insurance and pass national security.
But they will not be liable to pay tax on earnings.
