(Nassau, Bahamas) - In recent weeks a number of queries have been lodged with the Department regarding length of stay for Canadian, American and British nationals in The Bahamas. 

* All bona fide visitors (nationals) from the United States, Canada and United Kingdom are landed at all ports for thirty (30) days. 

*Visitors from the aforementioned countries are allowed to remain in The Bahamas for a period up to eight (8) months.

Stay periods are approved following an interview with an Immigration Officer(s). In instances where visitors are desirous of additional time, an extension should be requested. 

*Visitors arriving by Pleasure crafts are required to complete the requisite forms and are allowed to remain in The Bahamas for up to eight (8) months. This policy also applies to the Home Owners. 

*The Department of Immigration encourages all foreign homes owners in The Bahamas to apply to the Department for a Home Owners Card in accordance with the International Persons Land Holding Ltd.  The Department is ever mindful of its mandate to welcome genuine visitors while safeguarding our boarders against undesirables.
