Requirements for entering The Bahamas
Fully Vaccinated Travelers
Effective May 1, 2021, those traveling to The Bahamas from other countries who have been fully vaccinated, with proof they have passed the two-week immunity period will be exempt from COVID-19 testing entry requirements.
Fully vaccinated travelers are still required to apply for a Bahamas Travel Health Visa and upload proof of vaccination in lieu of the COVID-19 PCR test results. Application for a Bahamas Travel Health Visa can be made no more than 14 days in advance of arrival for fully vaccinated travelers. Visitors who have been fully vaccinated will not be required to take a Rapid Antigen test on Day 5 of their visit or complete a daily Health Survey, but must follow all other on-island safety protocols during travel, including wearing a mask, physical distancing and regularly washing of hands.
To enter the Bahamas, you are required to take a COVID-19 RT-PCR test and submit your negative test result to Bahamas Travel Health Visa to obtain an International Health Travel Visa. The test must be taken within 5 days of your arrival in The Bahamas with the day of the test counting as Day 0 and your travel day as Day 5.
The Government of The Bahamas also requires a Rapid Antigen Test on Day 5 of your stay in The Bahamas. The day of your arrival counts as Day 1. A test is not required if you are leaving the Bahamas on Day 5. Seascape Inn is a Bahamas Travel Health Visa Testing Center for administering the required Rapid Antigen Test.
You are also required to complete a daily Health Survey and must follow all other on-island safety protocols during travel, including wearing a mask, physical distancing and regularly washing of hands.
Assistance is available from the Health Visa Hotline 242 502-0829.
**Please print out your test result and your Health Travel Visa and carry them with you while traveling. If you are fully vaccinated, please carry a copy of your proof of vaccination along with your Health Travel Visa. Electronic copies are acceptable but a paper copy is recommended as backup.
**When applying for your BHTV you will need to enter your flight information and passport information. Master Card and Visa are the accepted forms of payment for the travel visa.
Requirements for Returning to the United States:
Effective January 26, 2021 all airline passengers to the United States ages two years and older must provide either a negative COVID-19 viral test* taken within three calendar days of travel or provide a positive test result and documentation from a licensed health care provider or public health official of having recovered from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel. Passengers must also attest, under penalty of law, to having received a negative qualifying test result or to recovery from COVID-19 and medical clearance to travel. Airlines must deny boarding to passengers who do not meet these requirements. Please monitor the CDC website for any updates to this order.
*A Rapid Antigen Test qualifies as a Viral Test and Seascape Inn is an approved test provider for guests of our Inn. For unvaccinated travelers, depending upon timing, it may be possible to have one test for both the test required by the CDC to return to the United States and the 5th Day Test required by the Government of The Bahamas.
