Good News for Fully Vaccinated Travelers to the Bahamas

 

The Bahamas is Eliminating COVID-19 Testing Requirement for Vaccinated Visitors.

Effective MAY 1ST

Effective May 1st 2021, international visitors traveling to The Bahamas from other countries who are fully vaccinated and have passed the two-week immunity period will be immediately exempt from testing requirements for entry and inter-island travel. 

Travelers who are fully vaccinated will still be required to apply for the Bahamas Travel Health Visa. Visitors to the Bahamas can apply for their Health Visa and upload proof of vaccination at travel.gov.bs (click on the international tab). Keep in mind that the visa takes up to 48 hours to process.

 

Unvaccinated visitors above the age of 10 must continue to follow the existing entry testing requirements, including providing proof of negative COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than five days prior to arrival.

    I live in Florida. Can I travel to Bahamas without any quarantine or delays. I am fully vaccinated.

      Yes! You will need to upload proof of vaccination (such as CDC or government-issued vaccine record card) and apply for the Bahamas Heath Visa, which can take up to 48 hours to process. The vaccination must have been taken at least two weeks ago to ensure immunity. There is no quarantine required.
