The Bahamas has suspended the mandatory RT-PCR testing requirement for vaccinated travelers, which was expected to take effect on 7 January 2022. Vaccinated persons, as well as children ages 2-11, may continue to present either a negative Rapid Antigen Test or negative RT-PCR Test.  


In addition, effective 4 January 2022, all persons remaining in The Bahamas for longer than 48 hours will be required to undergo a Rapid Antigen Test, regardless of vaccination status.  



All those travelling to The Bahamas from other countries, whether fully vaccinated or unvaccinated, will be required to obtain a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than three days (72 hours) prior to the date of arrival in The Bahamas. 


VACCINATED travelers and children between the ages of 2- 11, can present either a negative Rapid Antigen Test or RT-PCR Test. 


All UNVACCINATED travelers, ages 12 and older, must present a negative RT-PCR Test (acceptable tests include NAAT, PCR, RNA, RT-PCR and TMA). 


All children under the age of two are exempt from any testing requirements.  




Effective 4 January 2022, a Rapid Antigen Test will be required for all travelers staying in The Bahamas longer than 48 hours (two (2) nights), regardless of vaccination status. 


Visitors departing on or before 48 hours will not be required to obtain this test. This test replaces the existing Day-5 Rapid Antigen Test.

The Paradise Island SAFE ZONE
& How It Works

Comfort Suites Paradise Island, Atlantis Paradise Island, Ocean Club Golf Course and The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort have partnered together to create a Paradise Island SAFE ZONE.
