Bahamas: Government looking to “broaden” economic permanent residency

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Minister of Financial Services, Trade and Industry and Immigration Elsworth Johnson said yesterday that the government is looking to ‘broaden’ the country’s economic permanent residency offering, noting that digitization has helped to expedite that process.

Johnson said: “We are also looking at the economic permanent residency and how we broaden that for persons who want to come live, work and invest in The Bahamas, to make that process easier.”

“We have had some complaints but we are not at the point where we can say to investors check your agents. Sometimes people bring in applications that are not properly done.”
