A new set of COVID protocols will allow for a quicker entry process for travelers who have received vaccines. Bermuda announced these changes on March 7.
As part of the revised guidelines, all visitors two years and older will have to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test. A rapid test performed within two days of arrival and a PCR test performed within four days of arrival both work. Vaccine proof is required for all travelers 12 and over, but booster shots are not required.
It will still be necessary for people entering the country to fill out a travel authorization form within 24 to 48 hours of entering, but the fee for completing the form has been lowered from $70 to $45.
Bermuda Tourism Authority CEO Charles H. Jeffers II said that news of Bermuda’s relaxed travel rules has been met with great enthusiasm by travelers eager to visit our island. “Our hotels and businesses are open with the Bermudian hospitality for which we are known. As spring and summer approach, there’s never been a better time to visit.”
Upon a positive test and proof of vaccination, Bermuda requires no further testing; if your return destination requires a negative COVID-19 test upon entry, Bermuda will schedule a test for you.
In March, a number of airlines will resume direct flights to Bermuda. In April, American Airlines will offer daily service between Bermuda and Philadelphia starting on March 27, while JetBlue will begin daily service from Boston to Bermuda starting on March 27. There will be daily flights from Newark by United Airlines starting in May, and Air Canada will resume flights.
