The Governor-General of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas is the representative of the Bahamian monarch (currently Queen Elizabeth II). As The Queen cannot reside in all her realms, she appoints representatives to carry out her duties as Queen of the Bahamas. Governors-General serve their term at Her Majesty's pleasure, usually five years. They are responsible for appointing the Prime Minister, as well as other government ministers after consultation with the Prime Minister.

The institution of the Governor-General was established in 1973, when the Bahamas became an independent realm. Before that, the Queen (as monarch of the United Kingdom) was represented in the Bahamas by the Governor of the Commonwealth of the Bahama Islands.

Government House in Nassau is the official residence of governors-general. The current Governor-General is Cornelius A. Smith.
