The island archipelago nation of the Bahamas announced on its Ministry of Tourism page that the Bahamas would reopen to international travelers on July 1st. The announcement stated that “At this point in time, the July 1 reopening date is tentative and subject to change based on COVID-19 trends, namely, if there is a deterioration in improvement or if government and health organizations determine that the protocols and procedures are not in place sufficiently to warrant an opening.”
The return to allowing international travel, part of the Bahamas’ five phase reopening plan, limits the aforementioned travel to islands where the virus has been contained. As of the announcement on May 29th, those islands included the following: Cat Island, Long Island, Abaco, Andros, Mayaguana, Inagua, Crooked Island, Acklins, Long Cay, Ragged Island and Rum Cay.
The reopening announcement of the Bahamas to international travel also included information on which resorts will be reopening and when. Among those listed, only resorts on Nassau were included among those currently open or with a scheduled reopening date:
The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, Bahamas remains open for business during this time. If you have questions about the resort services and facilities, please reach out to the hotel directly at +1.242.363.2501.
