With all the ingredients necessary to attract worldwide visitors, it's unsurprising that the main industry in the Bahamas is tourism, which equates to 60% of the country's GDP. The second major employer is financial services and banking. Expats working in the Bahamas will almost certainly be employed in one of these two areas, with agriculture accounting for just 5% of the GDP. The country's worldwide appeal to travelers means that expats can enjoy water parks, historical forts, galleries, museums, and regular festivals. Botanical gardens, aquariums, and boat trips around the islands give nature enthusiasts the chance to explore the local wildlife. With stunning vacation brochure locations and English as the official language, most expats relocating to the Bahamas will fit in easily. The climate and surroundings make for an outdoorsy lifestyle of sailing, diving, fishing, and snorkeling, while cricket is a national pastime with regular matches to enjoy.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Dubai or Jeddah, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
When relocating it can be difficult to meet others and build a new social circle, but with InterNations you are part of a community offline as well as virtually. Our members hail from all over the world and you are invited to meet them by attending our regular social events. We also encourage you to explore our groups for different hobbies and interests to find more opportunities of socializing with your fellow expats and share your interests in exploring the city and dining out as you embark on a new life in the Bahamas.
