The Bahamas has reversed its earlier position ( below ) that banned US passport holders from entering the country. Now…visitors from all countries are welcome, but must self fund, in a government facility, with testing, a mandatory 14 day quarantine.
Via the Nassau Guardian
Clause 26 of the Emergency Powers (COVID-19 Pandemic)(No. 2) Order issued Wednesday, states that visitors arriving on “an international commercial air travel” must, at their own expense, submit to quarantine at a government facility for 14 days and undergo an RT-PCR COVID-19 molecular diagnostic test at the end of the 14-day period, also at the visitor’s expense.
This isn’t limited to just visitors either, even Bahamians and legal residents are mandated to quarantine at a government facility on their own dime unless they present a valid negative PCR covid test.
And clause 25 states that Bahamians and legal residents will be mandatorily quarantined at a government facility at their own expense upon arrival, and must submit to a COVID-19 test at the end of the quarantine period, also at their expense.
Effective Wednesday, July 22nd, the Bahamas will close its borders to those holding a US passport. It looks like some flights will continue to operate to get Americans home, but otherwise flights won’t be operating to/from the US until further notice. If you are carrying a Canadian or UK passport, and can prove a negative Covid test ( within 10 days of arrival ), you’re in luck and you can crank up the Beach Boys, throw caution to the wind, and soak up those beautiful Bahama rays. Not that this is something I would advocate – just letting you know what you could do if you wanted. This news comes just three short weeks after the Bahamas opened their borders to International travelers and witnessed a spike in Covid cases as a result. Stay safe folks
