Before You Arrive

Travel Requirements for Entering The Bahamas (Mandated by the Government of the Bahamas):

Travelers to The Bahamas must procure a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR (swab) test taken no more than five (5) days prior to their arrival date to The Bahamas. Children 10 and under are not required to take a test.

Once a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR (swab) test is obtained, travelers can apply for their required Bahamas Travel Health Visa at travel.gov.bs.

As part of the Travel Health Visa application, travelers will be required to opt-in to COVID-19 health insurance that covers them for the duration of their stay in The Bahamas. The cost of insurance is included in the Health Visa application fee. To learn more about The Bahamas Health Visa and health insurance, visit bahamas.com/tourism-reopening-faq.

The cost of the Travel Health Visa is dependent on the length of stay and is subject to change.

  • $40 per person for a 4-night, 5-day stay
  • Please print copies of the following for each traveler:
  • $60 per person for more than a 4-night stay
  • Negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test results
  • Children 10 years and under are free
  • Approved Travel Health Visa with QR code visible
  • The fee includes mandatory health insurance
  • Receipt for payment of the Travel Health Visa

Effective May 1, 2021, international visitors traveling to The Bahamas from other countries who are fully vaccinated and have passed the two-week immunity period will be exempt from testing requirements for entry and inter-island travel.

Requirements for Vaccinated Travelers:

Vaccinated travelers will still need to apply for the Bahamas Travel Health Visa and will be required to upload proof of vaccination (such as CDC or government issued vaccine record card) with their application in place of PCR test requirement. They will not need to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test prior to entry, submit to rapid testing mandates or complete the daily health questionnaire during their stay. At this time The Bahamas Government will only be accepting vaccines by Pfizer Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca.

Requirements for Unvaccinated Travelers:

Travelers who are not fully vaccinated will be required to follow all existing entry testing requirements including applying for a Bahamas Travel Health Visa, providing proof of negative PCR test taken no more than five (5) days prior to arrival and completing the daily health questionnaire, as well as conducting rapid COVID-19 antigen testing if they are staying in The Bahamas for longer than four (4) nights and five (5) days.

Requirements for All Travelers:

All visitors and residents will be required to apply for the Bahamas Travel Health Visa and adhere to health and safety protocols on-island such as mask wearing, social distancing and frequent hand washing among others. Health and safety remain our highest priority and we must continue to be vigilant.

The SAFE ZONE is an enhanced COVID-19 screened area to protect the residents, guests, team members, and other Paradise Island visitors.

All guests in The Bahamas will be required to take a second test on day five (5) of their stay.

Registered guests of Comfort Suites Paradise Island will be able to enjoy access to the amenities of the three Paradise Island SAFE ZONE properties including the Atlantis Casino, Marina Village, Ocean Club Golf Course, Aquaventure Waterpark and Mandara Spa.

Please note you will not be required to wear your masks while at the beach, swimming in the pools, riding the slides, and eating and drinking at the restaurants in the Aquaventure waterpark.  However, wearing your mask is mandatory at all other times.
