Bahamas is all set to revise its visa regulations in order to regularize the immigration even more efficiently. In a recent note released to the press, the immigration minister Fred Michell has confirmed this news. He has said that the government would bring in new visa regulations, which would come into force from 1 November, 2014.
People willing to migrate to Bahamas after 1 November, 2014 on work visas are required to pay $100 processing fee. They also need to produce a labor certificate, an employee information sheet besides a cover letter and a stamp tax of $30.
Also, the minister directed all Bahamas nationals to get their passports by 1 November. He has also mentioned that those who hold foreign passports can apply for citizenship of Bahamas. He even stressed that those who don’t have legal status to work will not be entertained for applications.
The immigration experts have advised the international students, willing to migrate to Bahamas, to essentially approach visa consultancies as the new rules came into force.
