The Bahamas Drops Quarantine Restrictions
- October 2, 2020
Less than three weeks after opening its borders to all travellers, The Bahamas announced that it will close its borders to commercial visitors from the United States, effective Wednesday.
In a national address on Sunday, Prime Minister Dr Hubert Minnis announced the following measures in response to the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
However, for the visitors scheduled to leave after Wednesday, outgoing commercial flights will be allowed.
Grand Bahama has seen a resurgence of COVID-19 cases after being COVID free for a little over two months.
Effective Wednesday, international and domestic borders will be closed to all incoming and outgoing flights and sea vessels to and from Grand Bahama, except for emergencies and to transport essential goods and services.
Before booking your flight to The Bahamas, ensure that you have a negative RT-PCR COVID-19 test result from an accredited lab. Remember to register for a health visa online. You will be required to present your documents to immigration officials upon arrival.
The tests must be taken no later than 10 days before the date of travel.
