Business Etiquettes in Barbados

Business persons visiting Barbados are encouraged to dress and approach their customers as they would in the West. Men need not wear jackets, unless they are meeting with Ministers of Government or attending a major conference.

People tend to communicate at arms length, although with an increased level of familiarity, this distance can decrease. In business and more formal situations this distance may be considerably larger.

The handshake is the proper greeting while being introduced, whether you're men or women. Many foreign countries have all sorts of stipulations when women meet men, but in Barbados, these rules are all but abandoned.

Business cards are usually exchanged. English is the local language so no translation services are required.
