Effective January 4, the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism announced that it has officially suspended the mandatory RT-PCR testing requirement for vaccinated travelers scheduled to begin January 7, and will continue to allow all vaccinated people, and children ages 2 through 11, to continue to present either a negative rapid antigen test or a negative RT-PCR test.
All unvaccinated travelers, ages 12 and up, must show a negative RT-PCR test. Acceptable tests include NAAT, PCR, RNA, RT-PCR, or TMA.
All travelers from other countries, regardless of vaccination status, are required to show a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than three days prior to the date of arrival.
In addition, if you are planning to stay for more than 48 hours (two nights), you will be required to take a rapid antigen test, regardless of vaccination status.
As COVID-19 travel restrictions continue to change and evolve, it’s important to keep checking back with your destination for the most up-to-date information.
