When we asked expats in Bahamas if foreigners are allowed to own property, they answered...

"Yes, foreigners are allowed to own property in the Bahamas. The process of purchasing property in the Bahamas is relatively straightforward and open to foreign buyers. The government has put in place a number of measures to ensure that foreign buyers are able to purchase property in the Bahamas without any difficulty. Foreigners are required to obtain a permit from the government before they can purchase property in the Bahamas. The permit is issued by the Ministry of Immigration and is valid for a period of one year. Once the permit is obtained, the foreign buyer can proceed with the purchase of the property," remarked another expat who made the move to Bahamas.
