Hello everybody!
I would need a piece of advice and some tips regarding my idea to move to Bahamas....I am a 24 years old Romanian girl, I gratuaded Journalism in my country, I travelled a lot and I have some experience working and dealling with people...The idea is that I am looking for a a quite and relaxing place to start a new life, to work and to enjoy my life in the same time. I just want to know how safe is it for a girl to live there by herself and how hard it is to find a job there and to obtain a work permit?.

Dear Lorelei,
That is a big decision. You better start with a permit in your pocket. As long as you live your life a girl should be pretty safe in the Bahamas. It is very difficult to obtain a work permit nowadays, even if you know people. Unemployment points to work for Bahamians first.

Hi Lorelai,

How have you been doing with your decision making? Contrary to what dolfie has said, as a single female here, you would need to be careful where you go and where you live. If you're smart about these issues, then you can definitely be safer.

Starting a new life here is not easy, as dolfie has said. A work permit is difficult to get, and you cannot be living here when you apply for your permit. Work permits will only be granted for jobs that no Bahamian is qualified for or willing to take. Living costs here can be expensive, so you will want to make sure that you have job while you live here.

Good luck!
