Bringing my mix breed dog who looks like a Pit Bull to the Bahamas

Hello,
We are planning a move to the Bahamas this summer. We have a dog that “looks” like a Pit Bull. We were told when we got her that she is a mix of bulldog and boxer. I read that Pit Bulls are banned. I’m wondering if this will pose a problem?
Does anyone have experience with this?

The dog needs a permit.
Ministry of agriculture and fisheries.
need to apply and fill out a application form on beforehand and the dog needs a doctor's exam and health certificate,
best before you start.
14 days in advance is no luxury.

Thank you. I’m aware of the process, not concerned about the Pot Nill issue, as she is mistaken for one often.

I would get an official statement that your dog is no pit bull.
These dogs have specific characteristics and yours will differ from it, otherwise you would be allowed on pit bull dogs shows for competition.
I would try to get an attestation from a club or specialist that states your dog is no pit bull.
Success

I reached out to them. Thank you. I’m just worried that if I bring her and they think she’s a Pit Bull then they won’t allow her in. :-(
