It is very difficult for non-Bahamians to obtain a work permit, the rule being that no expatriate may be offered a job that a qualified Bahamian can do. Employers must advertise locally and if the job is unfilled, a fairly exhaustive amount of paperwork is then required by the Department of Immigration.

Teach English abroad with an i-to-i TEFL Course
If you’ve ever thought about living and working abroad, then why not teach English as a foreign language (TEFL)? It could be the key to funding your travels and experiencing new cultures in a totally new way. You don’t need teaching experience or even the ability to speak the local language – although you might learn it while you’re out there.
