assuming you aren't already overpaid relative to credentials or whatever: one thing you could do is add a load for cola and then a housing allownce, which will vary some depending on position within the company and family size and how much they really want you.

you could add some figures like 20% salary and 5-10k per month for housing. play with that and the tax spreadsheet to see what makes you at least whole.

...there is also a good number of expatriates who feel more and more disenchanted with island life — and genuinely fearful of talking about it openly. Anti-expat flyers, the sudden and very public termination of guest workers who apparently ‘stepped out of line’, the Immigration Minister’s suggestion that expatriates stay out of politics and, of course, the fact that term limits are starting to bite have soured the Bermuda experience for some. In a special feature, we talk to guest workers and look closely at the peculiar dynamic of expat/Bermudian relations.


New push to restrict car usage

Businesses who employ more than 10 guest workers will have the power to decide who can and cannot own a car, under a new policy announced by Transport Minister Ewart Brown today.

Dr. Brown said: "The aim of this formula is to limit the expatriate worker from purchasing a car at will and place the burden on employers to know their employees and to assess their genuine need for a car."

the car issue is interesting. there is already a cap on vehicles, no? one per houshold + taxi + doctors, right? and not every rental address gets one (depends on if the landlord allows it, right)?

why not just put them to bid, and have a finite number of them? bermudian owned property all gets one per houshold, and the rest get set up as a scarce resource that can be traded/sold?

Great Thread.

- Does anyone know how relevant the information still is?
- Is it still a 3 to 4 month wait period for the work permit?

What do people that own homes in the states do when they go to Bermuda? (And perhaps more importantly what do they do with the stuff in their home?)
What about thier cars? (I have 2 years left on a lease)

Inquiring minds want to know.

Any other expats out there willing to chime in?

there is usually a relo package. std par tof those is often vehicle lease breaking, help selling a home (if that is what you want), etc. depending on how high up you are, you would have more leverage.

as for the wait on work permit, I think it is also somewhat dependent on the size of the hiring company, that company's relationship (recent and long term) with the gov't agency that grants the permits, and the importance of the person being hired (CEO vs another cube dweller).

i might be talking out of my bum again. a recruiter should know these things, so ask yours.
