Bahamas: US embassy dismisses cash requirement for entry claims

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – United States Embassy Public Affairs Officer Daniel Durazo said today there is no minimum cash requirement for traveling to the United States.

He was responding to questions from Eyewitness News on an article in a bi-weekly publication, which asserted there was a $2,000 cash requirement for entry into the US in the event a foreign traveler contracts COVID-19 in the country.

“That story is completely false,” Durazo said.

“There are no minimum cash requirements for traveling to the U.S.

“To be clear, pre-clearance requirements for Bahamians traveling to the U.S. have not changed.”

According to the embassy, for all flights departing while pre-clearance operations are open between 9am and 6.30 pm, Bahamians may continue to travel through pre-clearance without a visa by meeting the existing requirements.
