New Requirement for All Air Passengers Traveling from The Bahamas to the USA
The Bahamas Poised to Seamlessly Integrate New CDC Order into Existing Protocols
Starting- January 26, 2021
Starting January 26, 2021, all air passengers traveling into the United States, including by private flights, air charter, and general aviation aircraft, will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status.
All passengers must complete an attestation affirming their compliance with the CDC requirements and provide it to their aircraft operator. The test must be taken within three days before their flight to the USA departs.
Before boarding the flight, they must provide proof of the negative result, or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline. Fortunately, the existing Bahamas Travel Health Visa website will include the ‘USA Arrivals Test’.
