Austria(ns) in the Bahamas

Austria already maintained good relations with the Bahamas in the colonial period, both on the government level and as a holiday and second home destination for Austrians who love the contrast. After independence on July 10, 1973, Austria began direct diplomatic relations, the responsibility of which was transferred from the Embassy of London to the Embassy in Washington. Thanks to more affordable flight connections, increased cruise tourism and more hotel offers in the Bahamas, more tourists came to the Bahamas. The statistics show the 1.800 Austrians per year, and Austria is thus the 20th most important country of origin (and 8th in Europe), fairly stable over the last 15 years (Source: Ministry of Trade Info). The number of Austrians resident in the Bahamas is around 25, according to information available to the consulate

Exports from Austria to the Bahamas are small, mainly tools, vehicle and aircraft parts and wine.

Bahamas and Bahamians in Austria

Austria is an increasingly attractive tourist destination for Bahamians.

There are small quantities of food exports (frozen seafood) and rhum from Bahamas to Austria
