Plan for Bahamas tourism sector

 

The plan outlines extensive health and safety protocols that will be enforced throughout the 700 islands of the Bahamas to mitigate risks for all visitors and residents.

Joy Jibrilu of the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism explains.  "Our top priority has and will always be our commitment to the health and well-being of our residents and visitors. A lot is going to change across the tourism sector. We are putting an even greater emphasis on making sure the Bahamas is safe and clean for everyone, and look forward to once again providing travellers with the tropical experience our islands are known for."

Travellers should expect to follow The Bahamas Healthy Traveller Campaign that encourages visitors and residents to continue practicing social distancing measures, regularly wash hands or use hand sanitisers, and pack appropriate PPE such as face masks.

At airports and seaports, healthcare personnel will conduct temperature screenings for all incoming visitors. 

The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism believes it is an absolute baseline requirement for consumers to have a comfort level that the Bahamas is a safe and healthy destination to visit, and the ultimate goal is for that to remain the case. 

Hotels, resorts, and vacation rentals will enforce extensive health and safety protocols. 

The Bahamas promotes a limited amount of health and wellness tourism where facilities will have to comply with the new rules.
