9th February, 1953
There appears to be soie
misunderstanding as to the
policy followed by the Immnigta-
tion Department in regard to
the status of a non-Bahatriian
marrying a Bahamian wife. It
should be clearly understodd
that marriage to a Bahamidh
woman does not Ipso Facto give
a man permission to reside.
take up employment or to en-
gage in any business or pro-
fession in the Colony. The
prior approval of the Immigra.
tion Department is required it
all such cases.
P. S. BRICE,
Immigration Officer.



Department of Immigration,
Nassau, Bahamas.
9th February, 1953.
All non-Bahamians are re-
minded that it is illegal to apply
for, or accept employment, or
engage in any business what-
soever without having first re-
ceived the permission of the
Bahamas Government to do so.
Persons who have received
such permission should under-
stand that a permit to accept
employment, or to engage in
business does not entitle them
to change their employment, or
engage in any other business
than that for which they have
received permission. All persons
are asked immediately to notify
the Immigration Officer of any
application from a non-Baha-
mian for employment, unless
such applicant is in possession
Sof the necessary permit.

Immigration Officer.
