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.His Excellency the Governor has his own Flag of Office.It is a Union Jack but in its center it has the Bermuda arms on a white disc encircled by a green garland.It is not tied to any laws of the European Union (EU). 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.
British officials in Britain and the USA are helpful in Bermuda's affairs.Although a British Overseas Territory it does not come under European Community (EC laws) and Bermudians are not both British and EU citizens.UK nationals should note that British laws do not apply in Bermuda, Bermudian laws do; Britons and European Economic Community (EEC) citizens do not have any of the same rights to live, be domiciled, be employed and retire here as they do in the United Kingdom or EEC.The salaries of the Governor, Deputy Governor and their staff are paid by Bermuda's taxpayers, NOT the British Government.Bermuda, despite its tiny size, is wealthy enough not to need the support from the United Kingdom some other overseas territories get.
