Which of those services listed above may European providers offer within Barbados under the EPA?

February 09 2012 | Computer and Related Services


For consultancy, data processing and database services and other services not elsewhere classified, EC service providers located in the EC may supply consumers in Barbados with these services and they may also supply these services to Barbadian consumers temporarily located in the EC.  Barbados has made no commitment to permit natural persons from the EC to temporarily enter Barbados for the purpose of supplying these services.  Nevertheless, given the commitment to permit EC operators to invest in/ establish a business in Barbados, the entry of key personnel and graduate trainees is permitted, but only when these skills are not available locally. In addition, the entry of contractual service suppliers is subject to an economic needs test. 

For software implementation services and data preparation services the same conditions apply as for those categories listed in the previous paragraph.
