the-bahamas-is-paying-you

No, this isn’t a typo. Yes, The Bahamas (your fave) is now paying travellers to quarantine.

Under its new travel requirements, the 14-day mandatory vacation in place no longer exists. Instead, visitors and residents travelling to The Bahamas must opt into the Health Insurance coverage.

As well as apply for a Bahamas Health Visa, obtain a negative PCR test five days before arrival, take another COVID RT-PCR on the fifth day (unless you are leaving before) and always wear a mask and social distance.

Easy right?

Get Paid To Quarantine

According to the Director General of The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Aviation, Joy Jibrulu, if a visitor arrives at The Bahamas and tests positive as asymptomatic, they will be allowed to quarantine in place and paid a per diem.

“If the person is asymptomatic but has comorbidities, they will have the opportunity to be medevaced out of the jurisdiction and likewise if they present with symptoms.”

Listed on The Bahamas’ website the COVID Health Insurance required by all international visitors includes:

  • medical expenses incurred on-island due to Covid-19, up to USD $50,000
  • trip interruption for necessary quarantine or isolation due to COVID-19, up to USD $500 per day/$7000 max;
  • medical evacuation due to Covid-19 and subject to medical necessity, up to $50,000.

Overall Cost of Visas

Travelling to The Bahamas has slightly increased due to Covid and we’re not excited about it.

However, with all the travel deals, you can be floating in the beautiful blue seas in no time.

For the health visa inclusive of the Day 5 Rapid Antigen Test and mandatory health insurance are as follows:

  • $40 Visitors staying up to four nights and five days
  • $40 Citizens and Returning Residents
  • $60 Visitors staying more than four nights
  • Free Children 10 years and older.
