Or,he was thirsty! Seriously, I completely agree with the previous post. If you treat the officials with the respect their positions swarm deserve and that the individual officers have earned, there should not be any issue. That had been my experience when I have visited. Please and thank you as well as sir and ma'am, tend to go a long way.

Re: Harassment In The Bahamas

February 2010 we cleared in at Morgans Bluff. We asked for 6 months and got 90 days. The Immigration official actually asked for his case of Bud Light.

December 31 2011 we cleared in at Morgans Bluff again. We asked for 6 months and got 6 months. We were charged a $10 "Overtime Fee" that we gladly paid since we would not have to visit Immigration again that trip.
