  • 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.
