The Bahamas is waiving testing for fully vaccinated travelers, the country announced. 

The move comes as The Bahamas has also eliminated its Bahamas Travel Health Visa for all travelers. 

Fully vaccinated travelers will no longer have to submit to pre-travel testing. 

Unvaccinated travelers ages 2 and up will, however, be required to obtain a negative test, either PCR or antigen, taken no more than three days prior to travel. 

Fully vaccinated means travelers who have completed at two shots of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a single-shot vaccine. It does not require boosters.

The changes officially take effect Sunday, June 19. 

“The Bahamas is adapting to the continued evolution of this pandemic. We want to streamline the entry process for travelers as much as possible, all while ensuring we are protecting public health,” said Bahamas Deputy Prime Minister and Tourism Minister Chester Cooper. “We hope the changes to the pre-travel testing requirements combined with the elimination of the Travel Health Visa will reduce friction for travelers and further the recovery of our tourism sector.”

The elimination of the Travel Health Visa means travelers simply have to show up with their proof of vaccination or test result. 

“The discontinuation of the Travel Health Visa is yet another signal to the international community that we are open for business,” Cooper said. “Throughout the pandemic, we have remained committed to evaluating protocols and adjusting requirements to reflect the current environment. We acknowledge that the Travel Health Visa was a burden for travelers,

and we are pleased to be able to eliminate.”
