Moving to the Bahamas
With its strong economy and historical links to the UK the Commonwealth of The Bahamas is a popular choice for Brits looking to move to its warmer, sunnier and relaxed climes. While it is no longer under British rule it still retains many British influences, such as its legal system, which prospective British immigrants might find appealing.
Relocating to Bahamas as a permanent resident is quite difficult, unless you have a parent of Bajan descent or lived in the country prior to its independence in 1973. For people who have neither of these preference is given to those who can show that they either own land in the country or have significant funds, at least $500,000, to support themselves and to put into the local economy. However, a temporary residence visa (tourist visa) is valid for a longer period of time than in most other countries, with visitors being able to stay for up to eight months at a time.

For those lucky enough to be able to arrange for UK removals to The Bahamas there are some wonderful expat communities to join once they reach the islands. The biggest expat community is located in Nassau, the capital city of the islands. Nassau is located on the island of New Providence and is home to the country’s commercial district. It is an area of incredible wealth.
Nassau is also rich in culture; the Downtown area in particular is home to several museums and buildings of interest including the Bahamian Parliament, Vendue House and Christ Church Cathedral. Downtown is also home to some of the best shopping boutiques around as well as an excellent variety of bars and restaurants. The largest festival in the Bahamas, Junkanoo, is held on Nassau, twice yearly on December 26th and January 1st. This world famous parade commences at 1am and is made up of people dressed in brightly coloured and flamboyant costumes dancing through the streets to rhythmic music.
Fox Moving & Storage have been assisting people with their removals to the Bahamas for many years. From the moment we receive an enquiry about our international removals service we appoint a dedicated account manager to the client. Our account manager will liaise closely with the client to arrange the completion and filing of all necessary customs paperwork and to then set up the removals process.
Once the client is ready for their property to be collected our team of highly experienced removals technicians will come and collect everything to be taken to the relevant container port. Once at the port the load will be given a consignment number and shipped over to the Bahamas. Once it has arrived at its destination port our experienced and reliable Bajan removals affiliate will take over, collecting the consignment and ultimately delivering it safely and securely at its new destination.
Fox Moving & Storage know that moving abroad can be a stressful experience at the best of times so we aim to make the moving of your property as worry free as possible.
