Thanks for the reply, so i guess i still have some left over for the happy hour and to take in sights and sounds of the Island
Short answer is yes.
You will need up to $2500 per month for housing if living alone, $400 for mobile, internet and TV, $500 per month for gas, electricity. which leaves you with enough for food and clothes.
Plus capital outlay of $3K for moped or twice that for car.

on the Bermuda forum:
Ok , so i have been working up to moving to Bermuda for the last year , my ex partner came over last year , i was planned to join him later this year, we have now separated, i still really want to come to Bermuda as i have a job lined up and have worked extremely hard to get certain Qualifications. Ok so in your opinions, is this wise ,is it likely to see alot of each other, i have been to Bermuda a few times this past year so i realise the size. I would love nothing more than to come to work in Bermuda for lifestyle, culture and definately the job role but as is expected wouldnt like to bump into the ex partner everyday. Is this more than likely ?
Wish I could be more encouraging, but not only are you likely to see your ex on the street, in the bank, definitely out at nights, but Bermuda is well known for loving to gossip .. one of the things that drove me nuts was that each evening, my (now) ex would ask me who the man I had lunch with at abc restaurant was. You need a thick skin and don't care attitude to get along there.
I have doing research for about a year now and am considering moving to Bermuda as long as I can get a job. I am a designated accountant in Canada. I will be coming alone so I was hoping for any comments/advice. I know this is kind of an open ended question, but any comments are appreciated! Thank you
I live in Bermuda,
If you find a job here, there are relocation companies that can help you with your move. But you can also look on Emoo Bermuda for apartments for rent, so you can see what is out there.
There are no taxes when shopping on the island, but everything is more expensive than back home in Canada. If you have specific questions, just ask and I will see what I can do to help out
A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire
abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to

You can't retire to Bermuda, you must be bermudian or Married to a bermudian .
