The Streamlined Entry Protocols will go into effect on June 19, 2022. The Bahamas’ government is doing rid of yet another COVID requirement for international travelers. Travelers will no longer need to apply for a Bahamas Travel Health Visa to enter the country as of 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, June 19, 2022. Travellers will still need to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than three days (72 hours) before their trip to The Bahamas.
While the new admission procedures are a positive change, the health and safety of all citizens, residents, and visitors remain paramount. Travelers must also observe on-island standards for mask wearing and social separation in addition to testing negative before flying to The Bahamas.
Testing requirements are as follows:
A negative RT-PCR test or a Rapid Antigen test done no more than three days (72 hours) prior to travel may be presented by vaccinated travelers, as well as children aged 2-11.
Unvaccinated passengers aged 12 and up must present a negative RT-PCR test taken no more than three days (72 hours) before departure.
