Moving to Barbados . Expatriate and live in Barbados

 

With this beautiful sun and the days now summery, we decided to try our hand at finding a unique nation and able to give a dream to our readers, 365 days a year. Today, in fact, we moved to the area of the small Antilles, a destination for many young people but also pensioners, eager to enjoy the post-work years in total tranquility. We know that it is not always easy to find all the information about a country, especially if it is not in the same continent in which we live.

What will be the cost of living? And the documents to access this corner of paradise? Will knowledge of the English language suffice? Do the properties have advantageous prices?

There is no doubt that these are the main questions facing future investors. But don't worry, you're in the right place! We at Realigro have created a mini guide made to measure for those who, like you, would like to spend a period of total relaxation or radically change their lives, buying a property in Barbados!

She is our protagonist. What are you waiting for? Make yourself comfortable. The solution to all your problems is in the next lines!

                 

Let's start with the basics: where is the island of Barbados?

Surrounded by the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, it has an area of about 400 square kilometers. With a population of 284,000 inhabitants, most of whom are Africans, Europeans and North Americans, it is home to the capital Bridgetown: the cultural and commercial center of Barbados and also the largest city on the island. The documents to be able to access this wonderful reality are as follows.

For a stay of no more than three months is not required a visa, just be in possession of a plane ticket (also valid for the return).  The stamp of the residence permit is affixed on forms distributed by the airlines, which is why, if a person intends to exceed the limit mentioned above, I will be forced to go to the Emigration Office and then request an extension. The financial prerequisite for applying for such an extension is fundamental.

The language spoken is English, so no problem! On the financial level, however, the currency in circulation is the Barbados Dollar (BBD). One euro corresponds to 2.2 Barbados dollars. Once this information of fundamental importance is obtained, it will be possible to analyze in detail the cost of living.

By selecting the main products and standard expenses of a citizen, we have created a small list 

Meal, Cheap Restaurant 11,21 €          

Milk (normal), (1L) 3,25 € 

Fresh white bread loaf (500g) 2,01 € 

Rice (white), (1kg) 2,59 € 

Eggs (normal) (12) 3,65 € 

Local cheese (1kg) 5,66 € 

One way ticket (local transport) 0,90 €

Monthly subscription (full price) 36,85 €           

Monthly utilities 85,84 €      

 

Let's come now to the salient trait: how much does it cost to buy a property in Barbados ?It should be noted that the real estate market depends heavily on foreign investors.being a tourist resort, prices, as we know, are high.the villas cost just over 1,000,000 euros but, if you are interested in more basic properties, there will certainly be opportunities tailored to you.

What can I say, we wish you a pleasant trip to discover Barbados!
