Guess what?! The Bahamas is reopening once again for Phase 3 on October 15, 2020. But, there are new rules that have been set in place that will keep it open through the busy upcoming holiday season.
Listed is the timeline of the Bahamas Reopening:
The Bahamas reopens for tourism, all countries are welcome to enter with a PCR test.
Flights from the USA banned due to the surge in COVID-19 cases.
Many areas of the Bahamas went back into a state of lockdown. 14 day quarantine in government facilities were put on any traveler that arrived into the country, which also included wearing a monitoring device.
American travelers are permitted once again. The bahamas relaxed the quarantine in a government facility requirement and started allowing travelers to complete their quarantine in a hotel or resort.
The government released their new "VIP" vacation in place rules to give more clarity and freedom within the walls or their hotel property for the duration of their vacation.
Currently the bahamas is open for travelers, but since the lockdown in July, flights have actually been very limited and travelers have been hesitant to book their trip. But, starting October 15, 2020, the government of the bahamas plans to reopen all major hotels and resorts, including beaches, and they will resume more frequent flights, including from the USA.
