What do I need to know before moving to Paradise Island?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Paradise Island, they said...

"Before moving to Paradise Island, it is important to research the cost of living and the availability of accommodation, services and transportation. You should also familiarize yourself with local laws and customs, and obtain necessary permits or visas if required. Additionally, it is essential to plan for any medical needs and consider what healthcare insurance might be required. With Paradise Island being a tropical destination, you may also need to prepare for strong sun and to be aware of risks such as hurricanes, potential flooding and the risk of mosquito-borne illnesses such as Zika, dengue fever and malaria. Being aware of the local culture and language are also recommended. Finally, researching the local job market can help you be better prepared for life on Paradise Island," explained one expat living in Paradise Island, Bahamas.

"Use these types of forums to ask questions. Use the internet to explore. Google maps was very helpful. Our process was 10 months from first interview, so we had plenty of time to research, neighborhoods, schools and shopping areas. That said, nothing can prepare you for being on the ground. If you can get the chance to do some recon, do it," said another expat in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
