May Aviation Jurisdictional Update, Bahamas

COVID Response and Airport Updates 

Keith Majors and Andre Hill, representing Higgs & Johnson, The Bahamas: 

 From Keith: There have been some liberalizations in the COVID response, mainly with domestic airline travel. The government still requires travel visas for foreign travel into Bahamas. Testing requirements for the PCR test have also been relaxed. Also interestingly, we hosted members of the International section of the Florida Bar Annual Retreat in Bimini at the end of April and into May. 

From Andrew Andre Hill: The government in the Bahamas just started a public/private partnership procurement process for the Grand Bahama International Airport. Grand Bahama is the second most populated island in the Bahamas and a bit of a business center. It means a bit of an upgrade to the airport there.

Extremely responsive, very helpful and highly knowledgeable: they understand the cultural issues faced by foreign firms – Santamarina y Steta

It is important to us to have attorneys in foreign jurisdictions with aircraft and/or aviation finance experience.  We have been happy with our L2b lawyers.

I enjoy working with Khachaturyan (of Asters) he is easy to work with and he is “quick to respond. – Chambers Global

I trust Ulrich’s judgment – his advice is both legally on point and commercially savvy. In reality, Ulrich functions more like an in-house attorney, since he acts on our behalf with very little supervision or direction required.

I am fortunate to have found Ulrich. He is one of a select group of outside attorneys on whom I absolutely rely.

The L2b Aviation tax booklet has been so helpful to me and my practice!

-Andrea Villa, Harper Meyer, USA (Miami)
