Re: Any one know ''Cesarean delivery cost in Barbados QEH hospital?

I think this guy's a wind-up merchant, to be honest (sorry mods, not trying to be offensive). Why would someone come on to a forum where we all talk at such length about how to stay in Barbados...

Re: 2 burglaries in 2 months

I'm so sorry to hear this, that's a sobering account for all of us and a timely reminder to be careful. We all take our personal safety and security for granted until something happens, I know...

Re: cockleshell apartments and fitts village

I don't know what the apartments or facilities are like, but I hear there are some beautiful views and you'll be right on the beach. I think Fitts is a great location too, easy access to almost...

Re: Imigration

747, I think it is true to say that it's harder to get residency now, although technically the rules haven't changed.

We were given 3 years residency based on our ability to support ourselves...

Re: travel time from paynes bay to paradise beach

I would guess certainly less than 15 minutes, but I never really drive down there at that time of day. Paynes Bay is pretty close to Paradise Beach so even with morning traffic, it won't be long.

Re: whats rockley golf club like to live at

Sorry, I was a little unclear there, it had been a long day lol ;)

Re: whats rockley golf club like to live at

I think it's a good idea to live on a community like the golf club at Rockley if you're here for a relatively short period of time. It's easier to meet other ex-pats and create a social life...

Re: totally confused by laws

Yes, I definitely think they're making it up as they go along LOL! I'm not sure the Green Paper has helped with that, either - they seem more confused than ever.

Re: Moving to Barbados

Well, I think some of your fears are well-founded. Lots of the ex-pats here are couples or older people, and a lot of the ex-pat groups focus on arranging activities best-suited to families.

Re: moving to paradise with kids

No, you can get visas for your kids to go to school if you've got other kinds of status. We don't have work permits, but our kids had no problems.

Re: Work Permits

No one on here will be able to tell you any more than hearsay to be honest, because the granting of work permits seems entirely arbitrary depending on the immigration officer(s) you deal with.

Re: Immigration advice required
