Bermuda to introduce 10-year work permits

| 05/10/2011

(The Royal Gazette): Ten-year work permits will start to be issued by the Department of Immigration this month, according to Business Bermuda chief executive officer Cheryl Packwood. She said Economy Minister Kim Wilson told an Economic Roundtable Meeting on Wednesday that the permits would initially be granted to the international business sector. In an e-mail to Business Bermuda members on Friday, Ms Packwood wrote: “It was made known that ten-year work permits would be implemented in the next four weeks with an initial roll-out to the international business community. Minister Wilson stated clearly that the ten-year work permit would be applicable to only those individuals who are deemed ‘key’ to the operation of the business.”

    You don't have to buy a property to get permanent residency in Bermuda.  In fact, expats are not allowed to own a property there.  How nice and easy for getting permanent residency there.  Since Cayman followed their roll over policy and now is followng their 10 year permit policy, wish Cayman would follow this as well – grant permanent residency to deserving individuals without making it mandatory to invest in property.

    Still not allowed to get a car for my spouse, buy the home of my choice, become Bermudian, or hire a white person if my ratios are “wrong”. Sounds great. I’m on my way. NOT!

    It'smore like the other way around as Bermuda came up with this 10 year work permit idea from back in April!   Oh well, just another instance of Cayman's Premier with his ever handy butterfly net catching whatever flutters or flits by and then loudly proclaiming "Eureka! this time I've really come up with the answer to Cayman's problems!"   Alas, on close inspection by those who dare to question or challenge the Premier, the net most often contains a stinging wasp instead of a prized butterfly,

      Yes very well said. I wonder what our premier is up to . Oh I know he is trying to figure how to tell us what he gave the Chineese. I call it good news, bad news..

    You forgot to finish the sentence:

    "Bermuda seems to be following Cayman down the toilet bowl".
