Bahamas Investment Authority

The Government's proactive economic growth and development policies are guided by The Bahamas Investment Authority (BIA), established to "cut red tape and lay out the red carpet" for investors. Operating from the Office of the Prime Minister, the BIA has been designated a "one-stop shop" designed to simplify investing in The Bahamas.

The agency has a four-fold mandate to:

  1. Administer the National Investment Policy
  2. Promote investment
  3. Evaluate project proposals
  4. Monitor projects and provide support 

Proposals to establish a business are submitted to the BIA and approvals come through this agency, which coordinates with other arms of Government regarding investment matters.
