Bahamas Immigration and Residency

The Bahamas is an attractive location for high net worth individuals seeking an alternative tax residence or domicile because it has zero personal and corporate taxes and has ready access to North and South America, as well as direct flights to the UK.

Temporary residence (maximum of 3 years, renewable) is readily obtainable and there is no requirement for a property purchase in the Bahamas or other commitment. Permanent residency (without right to work) is available to persons willing to invest at least $1,500,000 in residential real estate, which is acquired by non-Bahamians on equal terms to Bahamians. Such an investment avails the applicant of fast-track approval for permanent residency.
