Sure, pack up your stuff, get on a plane, and hope you are welciome there, which you are probably not without a visa

To whom this may concern.  I am looking for a final move and Barbados keeps looking better and better.  I am in the Restaurant business and have been for a very long time.  What would be my options of landing a job and also pricing on living quarters?

Fairly easy If you can cook at a high level.

Check out the Hilton Hotel (looking for people right now).

Expect to work hard. If you are good you can make $$$ and meet many celebrities.

Example: Jodie Kidd (model) has a party at her parents house in Barbados for Dec. 31, 2005. Entry fee is US $2 200.00 per person.

Income Taxes are 40%, VAT (sales tax) 15%. Hence, expensive to live.

Surf crowded. Good waves on a weekend over 50 people at Soup Bowls. 40 of them can "really surf".

If you can surf during weekdays, and work at night this is ideal.

I dont know about permanently but I lived there for 6 months and worked under the table. There are quite a few foreign owned businesses that you could hit up for jobs, heaps of restaurants on the south and west coasts. Soup Bowl is such a fun wave and you can easily score the west coast uncrowded if you know where to go.
