Where should I setup a bank account in Cat Island?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Cat Island what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Before retiring in Cat Island, expats should know that the cost of living is relatively high, especially for imported goods due to transportation costs. They should also be aware that while English is the official language, the local dialect can sometimes be difficult to understand. Expats should know that the healthcare facilities on the island are limited, so they may need to travel to Nassau or the United States for serious medical conditions. They should also be aware that the island is prone to hurricanes, especially between June and November. Expats should understand that the pace of life on Cat Island is slower than in many Western countries, which can be a significant adjustment. They should also know that the island's economy is primarily based on tourism, fishing, and agriculture. Before retiring in Cat Island, expats should be aware that they will need to apply for a residence permit if they plan to stay for more than a few months. They should also know that while the island is generally safe, petty crime can be an issue, so it's important to take basic safety precautions. Expats should also know that the island has a small population, so they may need to travel to larger islands or the mainland for certain goods and services. Finally, they should be aware that while the island's natural beauty is stunning, entertainment options are limited, so they should be prepared to create their own fun," remarked another expat in Cat Island, Bahamas.
