Worker ID passes require proof of right to work

Bahamas Immigration Logo

All workers (including housekeepers, gardeners, handymen etc.) are required to obtain a pass and enter the property via the service entrance. Occasional workers may obtain a day pass at the entrance subject to paying a $1 deposit (refunded on exit) and clearing security in the usual manner.

Contractors and regular workers, including those that are employed by contractors, are required to purchase an annual pass at a cost of $10 per annum (or $1 per month or part thereof if purchased during the year).

To qualify for a pass the applicant should obtain authorization from the property owner. In the event that the applicant is employed by a third party authorized by the owner, such as a contractor, that third party should make the application on behalf of its’ personnel.

Applicants must demonstrate they have the right to work in The Bahamas by producing a passport and, in the case of non-Bahamians, a valid permit with no work restrictions.

The annual passes expire on December 31 at midnight. Call 327 6943 for further information.
