    • Children under the age of ten (10)
    • Pilots and crew who remain overnight in The Bahamas
  • All visitors and returning residents are required to quarantine for 14-days upon arrival into The Bahamas.
    • Travelers are permitted to quarantine at a hotel, private club or rented accommodations (like Airbnb), as well as on a private boat.
    • Hotel guests are permitted to access all available amenities on property.
    • All persons must submit to monitoring and install the Hubbcat App on their cellular phones for purposes of contact tracing.
    • After the 14 days, all persons intending to remain in the country may be required to complete another COVID-19 test, at their own expense, to exit quarantine.

Full details on entry protocols to The Bahamas can be found on bahamas.com/travelupdates. For additional details and the Prime Minister’s recent remarks and statements, please visit opm.gov.bs. The Bahamas has remained diligent in efforts to minimize the spread of COVID-19 throughout the islands, and these measures are imperative to ensure that remains the case. Due to fluidity of the COVID-19 situation both in The Bahamas and worldwide, protocols are subject to change. The health and wellbeing of both residents and visitors remain the number one priority, and public health officials are closely monitoring indicators to determine whether more or less stringent measures will be required going forward.
