Antigua and Barbuda now part of OECS free movement system

Antigua and Barbuda has finally completed the process to waive the need for work permits for nationals of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).

The country is the last member-nation of the OECS to implement this along with the granting of indefinite stays for OECS nationals.

The bill to meet the obligations under the OECS Economic Union was passed under the former United Progressive Party’s administration in March but has only now been implemented.

Attorney General Steadroy ‘Cutie’ Benjamin says it’s an important step forward for the OECS integration process.

Benjamin also told those seeking work to remember they now can look anywhere in the OECS for opportunities without restrictions.
