Bermuda drops testing and quarantine requirements for vaccinated travelers

Bermuda will relax some of its coronavirus-related protocols starting next month, to streamline the travel process for tourists. According to reports, from March 7, fully vaccinated travelers will no longer be required to undergo a PCR test upon arrival and self-quarantine until the results are known.

According to reports, the Bermuda Tourism Authority has also confirmed that the time window for testing before a traveler arrives will likely be reduced from four days to two days before arrival. However, travelers will need to fill out a “Travel Authorization” form 24 to 48 hours before their trip.

Regarding vaccinated travelers, the island recognizes as vaccinated those who have received a second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine within six months of their visit or who have received a booster dose.

Additionally, to facilitate travel for visitors, the Bermuda Tourism Authority has assured that the island will provide return testing and schedule it automatically for travelers whose countries require it.

From now on, travelers aged 18 and over are required to provide proof of a negative PCR test taken within four days of arrival, or provide a negative antigen test report taken within three days following arrival. Travelers are then required to undergo a PCR test at the airport upon arrival, and complete an authorization form within one to three days of travel, in addition to taking an antigen test on the fourth day of their stay.
