caribesue posted Relocation counselors in Bermuda on the Bermuda forum on August 28, 2015:
Hi there!. I'm Sue Martin and work as Regional Manager Central America & Caribbean at a U.S. relocation company specialized in Latin America and currently expanding to new markets. One of our international clients is planning to move several executives to Bermuda next month. Our standard approach is having local freelance counselors in the country who take care of the incoming expats and act as our representatives there. Their profile normally is expats' wives with free time and good local knowledge who want to make extra money with an interesting job while interacting with new expats. We currently have one or two positions available in Bermuda, so if you know someone who could be interested, please give her/him my e-mail (caribesue@gmail.com) so we can get in contact and go into details. This is a really nice job happily shared by counselors all over the world. We provide training about our different services and are ready to send the interested people all the information they may need. Thank you!.

get the best you can everything is imported so expect things to be expensive. Where you are not taxed on Salary it is made up on products etc. I am not sure how that can be question can be answered as it is pretty open the more you make the better. Cheers

Hello everyone, My husband and I are considering moving to Bermuda from Europe in December 2015. I will be by then around 30 weeks pregnant.

Hi I'm moving to Bermuda and was wondering what would be the best parish to look for an apartment to rent? I am single so will be moving on my own. I want to be close to bars and restaurants etc and not too far from Hamilton. Also want to be close to the beaches. Was thinking the south shore but not sure which area would be best for someone in my situation? Any help would be much appreciated!

You have lots of people from UK here. Dress for summer light. When you leave let me know I can give you contact info. Everything is imported so expect to pay more than you are used to. Cheers David dcostelloe825@gmail.com

Hi there I am thinking of moving overseas and cant seem to get a straight answer on whether or not I have to cash in RRSPs and TFSA before I leave to sever all ties with Canada. CRA says yes but I have friends who havent and say no! Any advice?
elsalmon replied most recently with:
Did you get any information on this? I am in the same position now... and will be meeting with an accountant to talk about this. It'd be great if I could come to the conversation ready with some solid questions.

elsalmon posted Moving on the Bermuda forum:
Hi, I am in the process of moving to Bermuda and I was wondering what are some recommendations regarding moving furniture? I have done some research on the forums over the past few weeks and it sounds like recommendations are a bit mixed. I recently acquired some very nice furniture and would have a hard time trying to sell them quickly. While relocation assistance is provided by the company I saw how some people recommend not bringing expensive valuables because it can get damaged due to the humidity. On a similar note, I read that it was advised to bring all the electronics with you since they are severely marked up on the island. People coming from Europe were advised not to bring electronics as they would not be compatible but those coming from US or Canada were advised to 'bring as much as possible' especially if the company was going to cover relocation. What are people's thoughts? Thanks!

Hi all, Just in the process of moving to Bermuda where I will be working in Hamilton. I would like to find a place. What would be a good place to start if someone is working in Hamilton? Thanks David
UrbanMan replied most recently with:
Not sure of your situation as far as transport goes. But if you'll be a scooter commuter - most people are - I'd advise living close to Hamilton. It rains - sometimes very hard - and winter will have its cold days. Therefore the shorter the commute, the better. Also, the shopping and night spots tend to be in Hamilton. Easier to participate if you live closer in. Compared to America, most people find they don't need a large place to live. Bermuda is a place people spend a lot of time outdoors. Especially young actives, who will play tennis, be at the beach, snorkel, scuba, be on a boat, and so on. Your employer and work colleagues will be your best sources of info.

Hi, try http://www.propertyskipper.com/bermuda for rentals. It is a good place to start and will give you an idea of prices. You can also send your requirements to an agent and they will source available properties - even if they are on offer with someone else. You'll need to consider if you are going to purchase a bike/car or use public transport if you want to live outside the centre of Hamilton. Good luck with the search!

UrbanMan replied to the thread Dating in Bermuda on the Bermuda forum:
travelingsue initially posted:
Hi guys! I am wondering what your experience is on dating in Bermuda. I am aware it is a small island and a lot of people get to know each other, It would be very interesting knowing what the dating scene is like from a single woman's perspective.
UrbanMan replied most recently with:
You need to remember Bermuda is a small town. The non-family expat community is somewhat cut off from the rest of the population. The social scene ultimately feels like college, even high school to a degree, with plenty of gossiping going on. Can be cliquey. Hard to be anonymous and discreet. There is a long-standing joke that the national sport of Bermuda is gossip. The single men outnumber the single women by a wide margin. For a woman, this means the potential for plenty of attention. The guys can get a little desperate though due to the numbers situation - guys don't come to the island wanting to live the life of a monk for 2 years. One thing about dating is the lack of things to do. Again, your in a small town, it simply does not have the range of activities a city does.

movetobermuda replied most recently with:
Completely depends if it is a crime in Bermuda and you were convicted (maybe in your absence) unlikely though for a speeding fine. You will need a police clearance certificate from Bermuda to apply for your Canadian visa so I guess you will find out then. p.s. I know this is a late reply to your post so please let me know what happened with the application :-)

Yosemitelover initially posted:
I will be moving over in August and will be bringing my bichon frise with me. How easy is it to rent a property which allows pets and does anyone have a recommendation for an estate agent?
pebbalita replied most recently with:
PLEASE be sure that as in England there is no Quarantine laws which would not allow you to bring in your dog..It is kept at the Airport I too am checking for mine as I may move to Bermuda I have relatives there . I am in Costa Rica now ..no restriction bringing in dogs here Deborah Good Luck
bermudaexpat replied most recently with:
The Bermuda government site is very helpful. If you have a large dog get a large shipping crate, mark it as required, make sure your dog has all it's shots, get paper work on line from Bermuda for your vet to fill out. No matter when your dog has had it's last rabies shot, it must have another one within one week prior to coming to Bermuda. There is paperwork to fill out at customs when your dog arrives and a tax on the dogs value. Most rentals allow for pets, but not all, try contacting Liz Wright at Rego Sotheby’s International Realty, Bermuda.
