We are SO excited about the re-opening of The Bahamas on Nov. 1st without any mandatory quarantines or vacations-in-place. Blue Sky’s owner, Shanna Dickerson, will be heading to these islands on Nov. 6th so she will be able to share with us details of her experience. 

The Details of the Test and Procedures

New protocols will be set to follow for all visitors to the island, as well as any returning citizens and residents. These consist of obtaining a RT-PCR (swab) test within 5 days prior to travel to The Bahamas. To increase the safety of this opening, the Government is also implementing a rapid antigen test upon arrival, as well as another test 4 days (96 hours) after guests arrive in The Bahamas.

Children under the age of 10 years, as well as pilots and crew members of commercial airlines, who remain overnight in The Bahamas, are the only people that are exempt from obtaining the test.

Once you have received a negative result from the COVID-19 RT-PCR test, all travelers must apply for a Bahamas Health Travel Visa on this website: This is where the required test must be uploaded. The cost of the Health Travel Visa is based on how long you are staying.

If arriving by air, the approved ports of entry will be: Nassau, Freeport, March Harbour, North Eleuthera, Georgetown (Exuma), Bimini (and Cat Cay) and San Andros (Andros).

If you are taking a boat, the approved ports of entry will be: Nassau, (Atlantis, Bay Street Marina, Lyford Cay, and Albany); Grand Bahama (West End – Old Bahama Bay and Freeport – Lucaya); Abaco (March Harbour Government Dock); Eleuthera (Spanish Wells Marina); Berry Island (Chubb Car Club); Bimini (Big Game Club and Cat Cay Club); Exuma (Georgetown Government Dock).
