When you arrive
into Barbados

This part of the process should be smooth

Your arrival into Barbados, to work remotely, will be warm and welcoming.

If you are coming from a cooler climate, it might be worth packing some clothes suitable for the heat, as it will be hot.

When you first enter the airport, you will approach passport control. It is necessary to have pre-booked your accommodation before you arrive into Barbados, as the passport control officers require the information of your place of stay and return flight. 

After passport control, you will pass through baggage claim. If you need assistance, look for the friendly “red cap” luggage porters; they will be available to help you with your bags, if needed. Once you have retrieved your luggage, you will enter Customs. If you have nothing to declare, then you can proceed to leave the airport. 

If you have organised a rental car for your stay, head to the car rental stand situated on the left as you exit the the arrivals hall. The rental company will prepare your insurance and local driving permit. It is recommended to organise your rental before arriving in Barbados as the stand is not operating 24 hours a day. 

Alternatively, if you are in need of a taxi when you arrive, you will find the authorised taxi rank situated directly outside the arrivals hall. The appropriate fares are stated on the board at the taxi rank.

If you would like to take the bus, there is a bus stop directly outside the airport. It will take you straight into Bridgetown via Oistins. From there you can take the next bus to your desired location. 

Once you arrive at your accommodation, make sure you have all the essentials, including food. There are delivery services available from Massy, WeFetch and Clifton Foods – to name a few.
