Amendments to the Bermuda Immigration and Protection Amendment Act 2012 By Dale Young, President of the Chamber of Commerce - Real Estate Division

NEWS

Recent changes have been made to the Bermuda Immigration and Protection Amendment Act 2012. As president of the Real Estate Division of the Chamber of Commerce and a realtor for over 25 years, I thought it important to share with you what the Amendment relates to.

person who does possess Bermudian status (within the meaning of the Act);

First is the removal of the provision for spousal licenses for a family home where one spouse is a non-Bermudian. A license is no longer required in these circumstances.

(b) if the mixed status couple acquire an interest in land and the non-Bermudian spouse only subsequently becomes aware that he already holds another interest in land; or

Second the Act makes provision for a Code of Practice. This provision deals with situations whereby the Minister will permit a ‘mixed couple’ (Bermudian with non-Bermudian spouse) to have an interest in more than one property without the requirement for a license.

(c) if the mixed status couple acquire an interest in land and the non-Bermudian spouse honestly believed that an interest previously held by him or them had been sold or transferred, but the sale or transfer is subsequently found to be defective or void (requiring rectification).

SECTION 82(3) OF THE BERMUDA IMMIGRATION & PROTECTION ACT 1956

2.2 In such other circumstances as the Minister considers appropriate, the Minister may approve the holding or acquisition of more than one interest in land by a non-Bermudian spouse without obtaining a licence under Part VI of the Act.
