Re: whats rockley golf club like to live at

Ikon - you're right. I'm an avid road cyclist, and cycling here scares me. The only time I will ever go is 6am on a Sunday - fewer cars on the road.

Re: visa

Ah, I see. In that case, you would probably be a recurring longer-term visitor (that's not an Immigration term, that's just something I made up).

Probably fairly easy to come to Bim and see if...

Re: visa

Technically, you just have to leave the island. When you return, you'll start over again with the 30-day stamp and then applications to extend. You'd have to show a return ticket at the airport, just...

You'll get better response if you post this in the Barbados forum, but I'll tell you what I know for now. Others will chime in also, as there are many of us who have been through this.

Re: Seeking Work: Qualified, Experienced, Police Cleared British Nanny

I'm afraid you won't have much chance of getting a work permit to be a Nanny. It's not a job that requires skills that locals don't have. It doesn't fall under the Specialized Skills category.
