Take the stress out of immigration

Does any of this resonate with you about Barbados Immigration?

  • You have read a lot of information online, but government advice is confusing, and websites contradict each other. 
  • The advice online does not exactly fit your personal situation.  
  • You simply don’t have the time and energy to deal with immigration red tape.

Hi, we are Alastair and Alison

We have lived in six countries on four continents and traveled extensively.  Each time we moved we’ve had to deal with a new immigration system.  We’ve had to work out which residency permit is the best for us and deal with the uncertainty of not knowing the processes, procedures, and even if we’ll be accepted.

We have hired many immigration lawyers to help us with our visas. But it can go horribly wrong. 

 Like this time.

From the start, communication was sporadic. Pricing was unclear. We had unnecessary 7am trips to the police station and mix-ups with appointments.

And what happened next was nothing short of heartbreaking.

Our son’s application was rejected.

After MONTHS of preparation, we had to start the entire process from scratch.   All the time standing in immigration queues like cattle was to no avail.

There HAD to be an easier way!

We made it our mission to find the best immigration help for people like us.

How does Where Can I Live find the best immigration partners?

We have an 8-point assessment to find the best in the business.

All Where Can I Live Trusted Partners must:

  • Be legally qualified to practice immigration law in their jurisdiction.
  • Be local immigration law SMEs that are up to date with the latest options and opportunities.
  • Have excellent press and outstanding reviews for customer service.
  • Show transparent and fair pricing.
  • Have sound privacy policies and procedures to ensure the safety of your data.
  • Put their customer’s interests first and not push unsuitable programs and schemes for their own profit.
  • Be a customer-focused, boutique law firm, and not a sausage factory. We want people who care about clients, not billing.
  • Communicate clearly with customers in English.

Our 8-point assessment is just the beginning.

Once we have selected our partners, we monitor their performance with every single client.

If you use a Where Can I Live partner, we’ll ask you how it went – and we do with every single client. We also do in-depth interviews with some clients where we want more information. And, we consistently monitor other review sites and press for any red flags.

If a partner doesn’t meet our standard, we terminate the collaboration. And, yes, we have fired partners when their standards have slipped. We will not accept poor service for our clients.

Do we trust our selection and assessment process?

Yes, 100%. That is why we offer a 100% guarantee of satisfaction. If you are unhappy with your initial consultation, just tell us what went wrong, and we’ll refund you immediately. Our long-term business counts on the performance of our partners.

We've got A's for your Q's

What will the lawyer cost?

Every application varies, and so very few lawyers publish a price list. However, your lawyer should be able to give you an accurate quote once you have had your initial consultation and agreed on the required services. Do not proceed without a precise quote for the complete service.  If a lawyer has prices quoted on their website, check to make sure it covers all parts of the service and there are no surprise add-ons and exclusions. And does your fee cover an administrative appeal if your application is rejected?    

If I do use a lawyer, what services will they offer?

Our lawyers offer a massive range of services. The firm you engage with should match your requirements. Some people opt for the full valet service, and others want their applications checked before submission. Some firms only focus on specific areas of immigration law or a particular area of Barbados.    

Why should I pay for a consultation?

All reputable immigration firms in Barbados charge for a consultation. This allows them to take enough time to understand your situation and to give you an honest assessment of your case. And it means you'll meet with a qualified immigration lawyer and not the intern or admin. Free consultations are sometimes just a marketing strategy to push a standard sales pitch.

Why should I use the Where Can I Live partner?

We have a detailed selection process for all our partners. We are so confident of service quality and value that we offer a 100% money-back guarantee. We’ll only ask why you were unhappy to improve our service, and you'll get your money back immediately no matter the answer. See our rigorous assessment process here.  

Will my application be accepted?

There is no guarantee. Each consulate has slightly different processes. And the requirements change over time. However, a good partner will understand those details and ensure you don’t submit an application before it has the best possible chance of being approved.

Has COVID impacted being able to move to Barbados?

Yes, the pandemic has impacted processing times and logistics. And, given the continuously changing circumstances, it is hard to be definitive. What we do know is that applications are still being accepted and processed but with some delays. And, as the vaccine rollout accelerates in Barbados and around the world, the situation will improve.
