The Bahamas Extended Access Travel Stay is a one-year residency permit designed to allow professionals and students from overseas to work and study from the Bahamas (remotely/online) for up to 1 year.
BEATS gives both students and professionals who are working/studying from home the opportunity to live in and travel among the 16 different islands in the Bahamas.
Due to the unprecedented flexibility in work location that has emerged from the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Bahamas is ideally suited to accommodate “long term” visitors who wish to work or study remotely while simultaneously enjoying and exploring a new destination and culture.
