On June 2, 2020, the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation, along with the Tourism Readiness and Recovery Committee, a group comprised of public and private sector partners, announced a collaborative plan for re-opening the country’s borders and tourism sector. 

Phase 1, beginning on June 15, will allow for international boaters, yachters and private aviation to return to the destination.

Also, during this phase, commercial airlines will be allowed to bring in Bahamian citizens, legal residents, home-owners qualifying for economic permanent residency, or the immediate family members or significant others of any of these groups.

All returning persons will continue to have to register at a Bahamas embassy or consulate and obtain a COVID-19 test with a negative result.

Additionally, during Phase 1 hotels will re-open for staff to return to work and put in place all the measures required to ensure they are ready to welcome guests at the onset of Phase 2.

Phase 2, beginning July 1, allows for the resumption of international travel, including:

  • Commercial airlines, both international and domestic
  • Hotels and vacation rentals, inclusive of Airbnb and HomeAway
  • Transportation ranging from taxis to jitneys and buses

Gear up by visiting one of our official dealers. Florida Freedivers, Austin's Diving Center and Dixie Divers are among the shops that are stocked up for this coming season!
