Ingraham Modifies Foreign Investment Restrictions, Residency Requirements

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - April 20, 2011

The prime minister attributed the changes to a series of developments over the past several years. The changes also include the provision that persons who purchase homes in the Bahamas in order to obtain accelerated consideration for permanent residency must pay at least $1.5 million for their homes.
