Work in Dominica

Cost of Living


The WIN Visa (evidenced by a stamp known as the WIN Visa Stamp) is issued on arrival in Dominica and is valid from that date for up to 18 months.

Under the WIN Visa, you are allowed to carry out any type of work that can be conducted remotely. However, the WIN visa only allows you to work remotely for companies and individuals that are not registered in Dominica.

Children of WIN Visa holders may attend school (whether public, private, or online) in Dominica. Education is compulsory for children between the ages of five and 16.

The Minister for National Security and Home Affairs may revoke the WIN Visa of an individual who contravenes or fails to comply with the provisions of the WIN Visa. Additionally, the WIN Visa will be revoked if the holder is involved in any crime or activity that may bring disrepute to Dominica or damage the WIN Visa Programme.

A waiver on income tax will be granted for people working remotely from Dominica under the WIN Visa. However, WIN Visa holders must remain responsible for paying income tax to their normal country of residence/tax domicile.

Within the first three months of receipt of the WIN Visa Stamp in Dominica, WIN Visa holders may import personal and business-related items, tools of trade, and household items free of Import Duty and Value Added Tax (VAT). They will, however, be required to pay Customs Service Charge and Environmental Surcharge on these items. The importation option applies to vehicles and equipment that can be imported free of Import Duty, Environmental Surcharge, and Value Added Tax, but these items must be exported at the end of the WIN stay in Dominica.
