Travel Restrictions

Entry For Vaccinated Travelers: Allowed
Vaccination Requirements: Immunised residents and visitors, 2-years-old and older, must also test on arrival, day 4, and day 10 while in Bermuda. Minor children (aged 17 and younger) travelling with immunised parents must follow the Child’s First 14 Days. For more information on travelling with a minor visit: Are you travelling with a minor?

Effective 23 August 2021, all immunised travellers will be given a red wristband upon arrival. Immunized travellers WITH pretest must wear it until receiving the negative arrival test. Immunized travellers WITHOUT pretest must wear it until receiving the negative DAY 4 test.

All unimmunised children travelling with an immunised parent/guardian will be given a red wristband upon arrival, which must be worn until receiving their negative DAY 8 or DAY 10 test result.

Step 1:
Have proof of your immunisation ready. This can be your signed immunisation card or a Vaccine Certificate. You will need to upload a copy of your vaccine certificate as part of completing the travel authorisation form. Bermuda residents will have received their vaccine certificate as a .pdf document, and this is the item you will need to upload. DO NOT upload the local SafeKey.

Step 2:
If you are a Visitor to Bermuda, 2-years-old or older, you must have a negative COVID-19 test that has been done within 4 days before your arrival in Bermuda. Immunised residents without a pre-arrival test must quarantine for 4 days. You will need to upload a copy of your PCR test results as part of completing the Travel Authorisation form. Most laboratories will provide you with a .pdf document showing the result, and this is the item you will need to upload.

Step 3:
1 to 3 days prior to arriving in Bermuda, apply for your Travel Authorisation. Have your vaccine certificate and your PCR test result ready to upload. Travellers failing to complete a Travel Authorisation form before travelling to Bermuda will be charged $1,000 upon arrival for the completion of a Travel Authorisation. Your TA is considered incomplete and will be rejected if you do not upload the necessary documents.

Step 4:
Pay $75 for your approved Travel Authorisation and print or have it electronically for boarding your flight. The Bermuda Government will email your travel authorisation to you. Please check and double-check that the email you provide to us is correct. Also, check your junk/spam folder to make sure the travel authorisation is not there.

Step 5:
Upon arrival in Bermuda, have your Travel Authorisation available electronically or printed for scanning.

Step 6:
Test upon arrival, quarantine at your accommodation for your test results. You must then test on day 4 and day 10. Your test dates and times will be emailed to you.
