  • Children 10 years old and younger are exempt from testing. However, you still must apply for a Travel Health Visa for them.

  • All Travelers will be required to apply for a Bahamas Health Travel Visa at travel.gov.bs

  • For the duration of the visit, Visitors will complete a daily online health questionnaire for symptom tracking purposes.

  • Beginning November 14th, Trip Interruption Health Insurance will be mandatory.  This will be included in the cost of the Health Travel Visa. 

  • There will be a cost applied for the Health Travel Visa.  The fees are inclusive of the Day 5 Rapid Antigen Test when applicable as well as mandatory Trip Interruption Health Insurance.

  • The wearing of masks and social distancing guidelines remain in effect.
