would it be easy to move to barbados
RE: moving to barbados« Reply #2 on: November 01 2005 14:11:00 »
To whom this may concern. I am looking for a final move and Barbados keeps looking better and better. I am in the Restaurant business and have been for a very long time. What would be my options of landing a job and also pricing on living quarters?

Fairly easy If you can cook at a high level.
Check out the Hilton Hotel (looking for people right now).
Expect to work hard. If you are good you can make $$$ and meet many celebrities.
Example: Jodie Kidd (model) has a party at her parents house in Barbados for Dec. 31, 2005. Entry fee is US $2 200.00 per person.
Income Taxes are 40%, VAT (sales tax) 15%. Hence, expensive to live.
Surf crowded. Good waves on a weekend over 50 people at Soup Bowls. 40 of them can "really surf".
If you can surf during weekdays, and work at night this is ideal.

I dont know about permanently but I lived there for 6 months and worked under the table. There are quite a few foreign owned businesses that you could hit up for jobs, heaps of restaurants on the south and west coasts. Soup Bowl is such a fun wave and you can easily score the west coast uncrowded if you know where to go.

I want to know the answer to that question also so if someone has writtin to you and gave you a good answer please forward it to me. I don't surf or swim but I would love to live there like literally pack up my stuff and take a plane and never come back again for real so let me know.
