 REGULATIONS FOR EMPLOYMENT IN MONTSERRAT

 
 

The Government of Montserrat is taking steps to regularise employment opportunities for CARICOM nationals in that country. The following outlines the procedures to be followed by suitably qualified CARICOM nationals seeking employment in Montserrat.

In recent times, nationals of several overseas countries arriving in Montserrat to access employment opportunities, have been refused entry because they do not fulfil entry requirements.

The Government of Montserrat welcomes individuals from its CARICOM neighbours who would like to contribute to the island's development process.

The Government of Montserrat has waived all work permit fees for CARICOM nationals until the end of this year. However, it must be noted that there is a processing fee at this stage.

However, the acute housing shortage mitigates against the free flow of persons at this time and the following immigration and work permit regulations must be adhered to:

  • They must have proof of a suitable place to live in Montserrat
  • They must have a police certificate of character from their country of origin (i.e. country of passport origin) issued within the last six months.
  • A medical certificate issued within the last three months before arrival.
  • Sufficient money to meet financial obligations to include board and lodging for a period of at least two weeks, if there is no proof of employment.
