COVID-19 and Travel to The Bahamas

Recently The Bahamas announced that the country would be closing its borders to travel from the United States. Shortly after the news made headlines, the government announced The Bahamas would again be opening to travel from the United States but, travelers will be subject to a 14-day mandatory quarantine.

All travelers arriving from the US, at their own expense, will have to undergo the quarantine requirement and a RT-PCR COVID-19 molecular diagnostic test.

This new order also applies to travelers arriving from the Canada, the UK and the EU. Previous measures, such as providing a negative PCR test upon arrival, are no longer necessary.

There’s also a curfew in place from 10pm to 5am. Casinos, bars, clubs and museums for example, are prohibited from opening.

The measures are all due to increasing COVID-19 cases in the country since it reopened to tourism and travel at the start of July.
