The Bahamas now requires all travellers to:

  • Obtain a COVID-19 RT PCR test five days prior to arrival.
  • Apply for a Bahamas Health Travel Visa .
  • Take a COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test on day five.
  • Complete a daily online health questionnaire for symptom tracking during the duration of the visit.
  • Always wear a facemask and social distance in public places indoors and outdoors.

From 14 November all visitors will be required to opt-in to mandatory COVID-19 health insurance when applying for their Health Travel Visa. The insurance part of the visa will cover travellers for the duration of their stay in The Bahamas.

The ‘vacation in place’ requirement has been dropped as all hotels and beaches are now open.
