The Bahamas has confirmed to lift the COVID-19 entry requirements for fully vaccinated travelers. Also, these travelers don’t need to justify COVID-19 testing results before entering the country.
The Bahamas has confirmed to lift the compulsory Bahamas Travel Health Visa. Meanwhile, fully vaccinated travelers do not need to submit COVID-19 testing results. The change was taken into effect at 12:01 am on June 19, 2022.
Besides, unvaccinated travelers 2 years old or older must take a PCR or a Rapid Antigen test within 72 hours before traveling. Then, they show the negative test results at the check-in before entering The Bahamas.
Honourable I. Chester Cooper, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Investment, and Aviation, said: “The Bahamas is adapting to the continued evolution of this pandemic. We want to streamline the entry process for travelers as much as possible, all while ensuring we are protecting public health. “
“We hope the changes to the pre-travel testing requirements combined with the elimination of the Travel Health Visa will reduce friction for travelers and further the recovery of our tourism sector,” added he.
