Economic Permanent Residency in The Bahamas

A simple, straightforward path to a minimal tax jurisdiction, citizenship, and one of the world’s strongest passports.


1. Purchase or own a residence with a value of at least 750,000 USD; or,
2. Own or hold a beneficial interest in a 'growth category' business.


All applicants must maintain independent financial means without recourse to Bahamian employment, and reside in The Bahamas for at least 90 days every year.


After holding permanent residency for ten years, for six of which all applicants must have been 'de facto' residents, they can apply for naturalisation.
