Many Americans visiting Bermuda assume, wrongly, that British-UK laws apply. Bermuda laws do and in significant ways are much more restrictive to non-nationals than any British, USA, Canadian, Caribbean, Australian, New Zealand and other democratic country laws.

Only in external affairs, some aspects of the judiciary, some areas of defence and some areas of the police is Bermuda subject to UK oversight.

Bermuda, only 21 square miles or 58 kilometers in total land area, differs from other BOTs in two main ways.

It is is the fourth oldest of all countries, islands and territories in the British Commonwealth of Nations after England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and Canada.

It was the UK Government that approved that Bermudians could have, on application, a UK passport and be treated as full UK nationals in every other way, but that Britons in Bermuda who are not also Bermudian would not have reciprocal rights.

For much of the last century it was given to a senior British UK military officer on retirement, or a politician who had held senior office.

For those who want to work in Bermuda, Work Permits apply just as much to Britons, Canadians, Europeans and Americans as to Philippine nationals or Mongolians.
