US is problematic because of the necessity of a Visa and sponsorship.

Australia is less problematic, but you will have to jump through many hoops and their points system. The only good news is that Actuaries are still in their skilled shortage occupations list so it won't be a total crapshoot for you. The immigration process will also be expensive. For Bermuda see my last reply.

Is time of huge importance? What if somebody had significantly less experience but had a fairly senior role? Say for example only 10 years experience but “head of” title, leading a team of 20 people at a large global company?

That makes no sense. Please explain why that would be.

What's the rule for Canadians ? do they need to be exactly 42yo to be considered ? what if they have dual citizenship with either US or UK ?

It's not a matter of "time". It's a matter of the people you are competing for in the UK for those jobs. The vast majority of them will have > 10 years of experience.

Also, just to be precise. Bermuda obviously recruits Actuaries from the US for senior roles, but in as far as the UK is concerned on the life side, the folks that I know have landed a job in Bermuda where all very senior (20+ years experience and Head of Dept. at minimum).
