Bahamas: Domestic travel visa undergoing trial test run

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The government’s domestic travel visa is expected to be implemented shortly and will include a daily risk assessment and a rapid COVID-19 antigen test on the fifth day of stay, according to Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis.

Minnis advised on the matter following questions from the media on when the mandatory 14-day quarantine period will be removed for inter-island travel.

The prime minister said he was “assured by the minister of tourism that the travel visa is now ready and we’re going to do a trial test run”.

He explained that once the online visa portal is ready, individuals will be able to log on and will be required to complete a risk assessment form “every day” and have rapid tests conducted on the fifth day.
