Bermuda Relaxes Protocols

Bermuda has announced updated COVID-19 protocols, offering new travel guidelines that will streamline the process for vaccinated travellers visiting the island by air.

As of March 7, 2022, the revised guidelines will continue to ensure the safety of all residents and visitors, while making it even more convenient for visitors.

Charles H. Jeffers II, Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) CEO, said that: “News of Bermuda’s relaxed travel guidelines has been met with great enthusiasm from travellers who can’t wait to return to 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.”

Bermuda’s new guidelines will require all visitors to show proof of current vaccination status and a negative COVID-19 test result for travellers aged 2 and older. Supervised antigen tests with two days of arrival and PCR tests with four days of arrival are allowed.

As well, travellers will need to complete the Travellers Authorisation form with this information 24 – 48 hours prior to arrival. Note: The Travellers Authorisation form fee has been reduced from $75 to $40, which will include return testing if necessary.

Only fully vaccinated travellers are allowed in the country. Fully vaccinated is defined as having received a full course of a COVID-19 vaccine with at least 14 days having passed since the last dose and before arrival in Bermuda. Booster shots will not be required.

Children 12 years and older must be fully vaccinated. Children eleven years and younger will take on the vaccination status of the guardian travelling with them.

No further testing will be required upon arrival. If the country of origin requires a test to return, Bermuda will automatically schedule and provide return testing to travellers.

Douglas Trueblood, BTA Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, said that: “People are ready to travel, and Bermuda is eager to welcome them back. While we remain dedicated to taking the utmost precautions, our new guidelines have been designed with convenience and comfort in mind, in addition to safety. Additionally, with several returning daily flights this spring, the island is easily accessible once again.”
