Congratulations! I had the pleasure of marvelous hospitality in Christ Church when I was a US Peace Corps trainee many decades ago. Great memories!
Good day to all. I recently saw this article (and others) about the Barbados government expanding citizenship to grandchildren of Barbadian descent.

This article states: Citizenship will be available to the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Barbadian citizens.

Does anyone know when this Nationality Law will go before Parliament?

My paternal grandfather was born in Barbados and I would be eligible to receive this passport. Given the reference in the article, my daughter would also gain Barbados citizenship.

Thanks so much.
Not only is Laura Arnold Leibman a brilliant storyteller, she’s also a tech wizard so, PLEASE, if you have the opportunity to hear her speak, don’t miss it!
