DOMESTIC TRAVEL RESUMES WITHIN THE ISLANDS OF THE BAHAMAS

 

NASSAU, Bahamas, June 9, 2020 – In accordance with the government’s phased reopening plan, inter-island domestic travel has resumed across The Islands Of The Bahamas.

All persons intending to travel domestically within The Bahamas are required to complete a Travel Health Card application prior to departure. Travellers can visit travel.gov.bs to complete the form online. This is an important step for contact tracing purposes.

 

In the coming weeks, The Bahamas will continue preparing to reopen the country’s borders for international travel, which is expected on July 1. Full details surrounding the three-phase Tourism Readiness and Recovery Plan can be found here and press release here.
