When did this happen?
Being a British “non-resident” and living in Barbados is one thing. Becoming a full citizen of Barbados is another.
Today Bill Latham, the spokesman for Sir Cliff Richard, is reported in The Telegraph to have confirmed that Sir Cliff is a full citizen of Barbados.
Is this report correct? Did I miss it in the Barbados news media?
Sir Cliff is always pushing Barbados and we thank him for that. We have no issues at all with him acquiring Bajan citizenship and we welcome him to the family.
We do have questions though – about who gets Bajan citizenship, the process and the rules. We can’t find a comprehensive guide published by the Barbados government and we wonder if the whole process isn’t quite arbitrary.
We’d love to hear from some Immigration staff on this one!
