opportunities for CARICOM nationals in that country.

followed by suitably qualified CARICOM nationals seeking employment in
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.
