Nigerians In Belize And Bahamas: by menaxe: 8:48pm On Jan 18, 2011
My girlfriend in university of belize wants me to come and stay with her in by next month, and i intend settling down with her there and will later move to bahamas for greener pastures. According to her, after my one yr of stay in belize i will apply for a belizean resident which when granted i can use to travel to any carribean country,
Pls friends, your advice is needed. Between belize and bahamas which is more suitable for settling down and hustling (under graduate and non gradute basis). And how is the living cost over there?

I have been to bahamas once on vacation we went to paradise island we had fun there. From what i saw Bahamas is major tourist destination lots of hotels and resorts and it seems like their economy depends on torisim. I think i saw one African guy working atthe hotel we stayed but who can tell due to the fact that the citizens there are mostly black folks. I dont know about husttling there but i know it's nice and the people seem very nice

Re: Nigerians In Belize And Bahamas: by omega25red(m): 3:36pm On Jan 19, 2011
Unfortunately i dont know anything about Belize besides the fact that it's a central american country that has english as it's official language though spanish and creol are spoken there. The border mexico to their north and guatemala to their south (wiki). They also do the holiday resort business but i dont know what their main economic situation is. Do a search online im sure you will find a wealth of info. About Nigerians being there, i'm sure you will find one there since they speak english but finding them might not be so easy. Anyway goodluck

Hello,

I Need informations on how to apply for tourist visa to Belize country.
Re: Nigerians In Belize And Bahamas: by 19naia(m): 6:33pm On Sep 20, 2012
I was in belize in 2000 or 1999...it is a very simple country,the capital city Belmopan reminded me of a town and not a city..Water is every where and most people there as tourist visit the ancient pyramid sites or do ocean tours in the cays (cays are large stretches of ocean with islands and the water never gets deeper than a swimming pool)..Some places you can walk few kilometres out to sea without finding your chest underwater.....it is not a hustling kind of place,the big city there is like a town and even some nigerian towns are more populated...the many black people there are very much like jamaicans and talk like that...i hired a car to take me to guatemala the neighbour country,and the driver was a joyful black man that had much marijuana as is common there.....there is casino hotels there as the most likely big industry there other than fishing and farming...belize is unusually expensive compared to the neighbour central american countries,maybe because they link their economy more to the carribean and not central america where they are seated....many americans retire to live there and english is the main benefit in belize...from belize,i entered and visited guatemala and also mexico....I am currently south of belize in nicaragua and visiting between honduras,costarica,and panama......Dont expect to have to hustle in belize,and dont expect to suffer if you dont have good job making big money..life in belize is easy if you are content with simple things in life and natural surroundings...nature is so well preserved there that belize is one of the few countries with healthy jungle supporting the rare black jaguar and howler monkeys..And much more.... I travel with american passport and US dollars,so i dont have problems entering the country and visa requirements..many of the central and south american countries allow US citizens to just come without visa and they stamp passport for 3 to 6 months for a small fee...sorry no experience with having to apply visas here....this thread post gives me the idea to visit belize again,i can take the bus from here less than 24 hour trip costing about $70.00....Enjoy..

That's a really nice story you wrote above. Its really a nice place for relaxation and not to hustle. Can you help a brother by helping me in there because I think visa to belize shud be easy. A friend told me all he did was just send his passport down there and his uncle helped him get the visa done and sent the passport with a belize visaa on it. As simple as that because his uncle is an American too. Is that still possible or do one have to get documents piled up in order to get the visa? I heard they have an embassy at Garki in Abuja. Kindly advice.
Re: Nigerians In Belize And Bahamas: by 19naia(m): 7:00pm On Sep 21, 2012
I am not sure about the details for Nigerian passport bearer,but the begining of all overseas travel is to have your countrys passport and to inquire at the embassy or immigration web site of your country of interest...I always go to VISA REQUIREMENTS web site before i travel to new place,so as to find the specific visa requirements for the nations...The web site is an info site for every country on earth with info on what countries require visas and what type is offered and info on how to contact the embassies and immigration offices...i will try now to post a link to VISA REQUIREMENTS web site...I dont think i can personally help you get papers to belize but i will try research info now [url][/url]http://www.visahq.com/citizens/Nigeria/ The site shows that there are 2 or 3 carribean islands like barbados,grenada that allow nigerians to visit as tourist without visa prior to going...belize requires visa[url][/url]http://belize.visahq.com/requirements/Nigeria/resident-United_States/

It is not the place for best education or strong economy or development..it is the place for simple rural life living as if you were on a carribean island sipping coconut,rum and eating fish/seafood
...there are immigrants from India,africa from there and native people there also...

Please, do you know of someone in Bahamas with resident or work permit that can help a Nigerian passport holder to apply and get 3 months Bahamas e-visa? I will pay for the service.

I am from the Bahamas and I know a few Nigerians here working, although I think they are all either illegal or married to Bahamians. The one I know that is an exception actually holds dual Nigerian/Sierra Leone citizenship and entered here on the latter passport.

I do know that visas to visit the Bahamas are issued by the British High Commission in Abuja

I am Bahamian, so it is maybe hard for me to be objective, but yes the economy is very good in terms of international comparisons. Like most tourist places, we were hit by the recent international recession, but right now the economy seems set for major expansion as a number of projects get underway.

Thank you so much for the time spared to comment. The British Embassy here in Nigeria, turns people down too much so long as you are not after their visa i.e UK visa. So, getting an online visa through a resident in Bahamas with resident or work permit is easier. The resident can apply for his/her friend to visit him/her at the Bahamas Consulate stated below.
The Bahamas Consulate Division
NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS
Tel: 1-242-397-9300 /1-242-397-9327
Fax: 1-242 -356-3263
Email: mofaconsular@bahamas.gov.bs
You can see this in their official website www.bahamas.gov.bs, click on non resident and click on applying for visa, read through the process NO 4 is where it is stated that a Bahamas resident can apply for visit visa for his/her friend on behalf of his/her friend.
If you can do it or link me with some Nigerians over there that you know, let me know. As I said earlier on my post, I am ready to pay a fee. Thank you.

Bahamas that recently cracked down on Illegal immigrants. Even ones of caribbean countries.

It is a nice country, wld love to visit there in december, but why would anyone want to stay in Bahamas without huge funding?

I am from the Bahamas and it is a bit unfair the way we are portrayed for having cracked down recently. We are a small country, and simply cannot absorb tens of thousands of people from Haiti, Jamaica, South America and many other countries.

December is a good time to visit here, as the weather is nice then, and not ever rainy.
