Working visa/permit
 
moving to Barbados in January.... my husband will have aworking visa/permit and I a spouse visa....but what will it look like in the passport? Is it printed on a full page? Or attached in some way? Also does that mean we won’t need a valid return flight upon entry?

hi.. I know these has sat here for a few days. This is actually a question to ask Immigration. I personally don't know. one would assume , that if you have been given a work permit, a permit to reside on the island, then a return ticket, which is required for anyone visiting the island, wouldn't be required... but again.. Immigration is the only one who could really answer that question.

No, visas dont work like that, you have to be sponsored - you cannot apply for a working visa your employer dies and if you already arrived on a tourist visa - trouble... Sounds like you have to rethink your plan.

Do I need a visa to Barbados? Yes or no please?
i had a job offer but they all ask of my location because they want a face to face meeting once I say Turkey, they are like, I have to be in Barbados.
What do I need to pass into Barbados as Nigerian?

To work your employer has to apply for a visa, not you, and they cost a lot...

Re: Working visa/permit
 
according to the information on the link posted above, a Nigerian passport holder does not require a visa to enter Barbados. it does state you may stay up to a maximum of 6 months on as a visitor to the island.. HOWEVER.. that is not automatic and your passport will be stamped for possibly 28days , 60 days etc.. to work in Barbados, a work permit is required.. and many jobs, from farm workers, to bank presidents, require a work permit. Not all jobs are allowed work permits.. very few actually.. If a Barbadian can do the job, no work permit will be issued..

and as said. .. you cannot enter the island on a visitors stamp and obtain a work permit while here..

Thank you so much for your response.
again, where am I supposed to get this visitor stamp or tourist stamp ( as stated, I can't enter automatically)
Would I get it stamp at the pot of entry or something?

https://www.foreign.gov.bb/foreign-r...rk-in-barbados just to advise. .this is the information on working in Barbados..

https://www.foreign.gov.bb/documents...onsulates/file My suggestion is that you contact the Barbados consulate in London to ask your questions. The visitors stamp is done on arrival in Barbados.. but.. you need to make sure that you have what you need to travel. .and again.. I suggest you contact this consulate for this information.
