A Message to Bahamians and friends of The Bahamas.

The relationship between Miami and The Bahamas is rich in history. From as early as the City of Miami’s incorporation in 1896, some one third of the male voters were Bahamian immigrants. As partners with the United States, and more specifically the administration in Miami and South Florida, your contribution and cooperation between us is growing stronger by the year.

Our Consulate is the home to all Bahamians in South Florida, and you are welcome to visit as we seek to serve you and the many friends of The Bahamas. Our services include new passport enrollment, renewals, emergency travel documents, visas, legalization, and deportation.

Together with my team, our mission is to protect Bahamians and promote the interest of The Bahamas. With a Diaspora exceeding twenty thousand in South Florida, our Prime Minister, the Right honorable Dr. Hubert A. Minnis has mandated that we register all Bahamians living in the United States. Such registry will provide us with talent, intellectual capital and historical data.

It is our desire that our website provides you with the necessary information to understand our Art and Culture, appreciate our natural beauty – islands in the sun, and induce your investment interest in real estate, business investment and blissful vacation.

Follow us on social media, for upcoming events and live streaming. We are at your service and we look forward to staying in touch with you.
