Please be advised that ALL travellers travelling to The Bahamas from 1st July, 2020 will be required to apply for an electronic Bahamas Health Visa. This form can be found on: travel.gov.bs
One of the requirements of the form is to upload a RT PCR COVID 19 negative test together with the application. The customer will receive an automated response informing them that they have been approved and that they are to travel with their approval (Health Visa) and their COVID 19 test. A customer may also be denied a visa (if for example, they have submitted a positive COVID 19 test result) and will also be informed.
Airlines are to ask passengers traveling to The Bahamas whether they have their Bahamas Health Visa ONLY. Airlines are NOT required to check any COVID-19 results as these would have already been checked before passengers commence their travel. The COVID-19 test may be checked by Bahamian Immigration upon arrival only, and their Bahamas Health Visa will have to be shown.
All current updates for travel into The Bahamas can be found at: Bahamas.com/travelupdates. This website is being updated with current information daily.
Hideaways will be prepared for guest arrivals beginning the first week in July. Of course this is all subject to the current plan by the government to allow international flights beginning July 1, 2020.
