Bahamas Expat Guide
What Is Expat Life in the Bahamas Like?
With all the ingredients necessary to attract worldwide visitors, it's unsurprising that the main industry in the Bahamas is tourism, which equates to 60% of the country's GDP. The second major employer is financial services and banking. Expats working in the Bahamas will almost certainly be employed in one of these two areas, with agriculture accounting for just 5% of the GDP.
The country's worldwide appeal to travelers means that expats can enjoy water parks, historical forts, galleries, museums, and regular festivals. Botanical gardens, aquariums, and boat trips around the islands give nature enthusiasts the chance to explore the local wildlife.
With stunning vacation brochure locations and English as the official language, most expats relocating to the Bahamas will fit in easily. The climate and surroundings make for an outdoorsy lifestyle of sailing, diving, fishing, and snorkeling, while cricket is a national pastime with regular matches to enjoy.
