UPDATED WELCOME PROTOCOLS (effective May 19, 2022)

ALL fully vaccinated visitors to the Bahamas (aged 12 and above) are required to provide a negative, lab/clinic administered, Rapid Antigen Test test taken within 3 days (72 hours) prior to your arrival to the Bahamas.

All un-vaccinated visitors (aged 12 and above)  must provide a negative RT-PCR test (not Rapid Antigen Test) administered within 3 days (72 hours) prior to their arrival to the Bahamas. A Rapid Antigen Test is acceptable for children 2-11.

  • Simply upload Vaccination Card and Negative Test Result to travel.gov.bs to apply for Bahamas Health Visa.
  • Please apply for Travel Health Visa as soon as you receive the result from your COVID Test.
  • All travelers 18 and older must complete individual Health Visas. Those under 18 can be included on parents Health Visa.

Please note that Bahamas no longer requires any testing once you have arrived on the island. Both the 5-Day Test and 48hr Test requirements have been eliminated.

Please note that the USA still requires negative COVID Tests prior to your return home. We are happy to arrange appointments for these once you arrive at the Cape. Alternatively, in most cases, approved ‘home’ tests (specific for international travel) can be purchased prior to your trip that guests can administer themselves that satisfy the ‘return test’ requirement.
