April 29. The Bahamas recently announced updated public health measures and entry protocols for fully vaccinated travelers, confirming that, “effective May 1, 2021, international visitors traveling to the Bahamas from other countries who are fully vaccinated and have passed the two-week immunity period will be exempt from testing requirements for entry and inter-island travel.”
Travelers who are fully vaccinated will still be required to apply for the Bahamas Travel Health Visa and upload proof of vaccination with their application.
Unvaccinated visitors above the age of 10 must continue to follow the existing entry testing requirements, including providing proof of negative COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than five days prior to arrival. Those staying in the country for longer than four nights and five days will also be subject to rapid COVID-19 antigen testing.
Visitors to the Bahamas age 18 and up can apply for their Bahamas Travel Health Visa at travel.gov.bs.
Relaxed entry requirements for fully vaccinated travelers are becoming a trend, with Iceland and the British Virgin Islands among some of the other notable destinations making it easier for vaccinated travelers to visit.
