•            All visitors (except children under the age of 10) must obtain a negative COVID-19 PCR Test result within 5 days of travel. Test must show the name and address of the accredited lab where the test was performed.

•            All passengers are required to complete an electronic Health Visa at https://travel.gov.bs/international within 72 hours prior to travel and upload the COVID-19 test results. The visa has a cost, which will depend on the length of the stay.

•            A rapid antigen test will be conducted upon arrival, and then again on the fifth day (96 hours). The cost of the rapid tests on and after arrival will be included in the cost of the visa.

•            Visitors must “Vacation in Place” for 14 days or the duration of stay, whichever is shorter; which means limiting the vacation experience to the grounds and amenities of a traveler’s hotel or accommodations.

•            All persons must submit to monitoring and install the Hubbcat App on their cellular phones for purposes of contact tracing.
