Updated travel and entry protocols

28 Jun 2022 / Bahamas

The Bahamas government has eliminated the travel health visa entry requirement.

Unvaccinated travelers arriving from other countries are required to obtain a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than three days (72 hours) prior to the date of arrival in The Bahamas. All unvaccinated travelers, ages 12 and older, must present a negative RT-PCR Test (acceptable tests include NAAT, PCR, RNA, RT-PCR and TMA). Children under the age of two are exempt from any testing requirements.

All on-signing crew must have a rapid antigen test conducted before boarding the launch boat. The cost of testing is included in proforma.

Notwithstanding any health restrictions that may be implemented from time to time, all travelers abiding by these new protocols will be permitted to move about beyond the confines of their hotel or other accommodation.
