Visitors must take a PCR COVID-19 test and obtain a negative result no more than three days before departure. The day of testing is day 0. Upon arrival, travelers must show a copy of your Travel Authorization. If you do not have a printer, have ready a charged phone or tablet to show your Travel Authorization. Present a copy of the pre-departure COVID-19 negative test result taken no more than 3 days before departure. The day you test, is day 0.
This applies to adults and children aged 10 and up. Children who are 9-years old and younger are exempt and are subject to their adult travel companion’s quarantine. Children 10-17 must receive parental consent to be tested. If consent is denied, the young traveler must quarantine for 14 days on arrival.
3. Get Tested by Bermuda Authorities Upon Arrival and Quarantine at Accommodation
All travelers must be tested by Bermuda authorities upon arrival at the airport. This applies to adults and children ages 10 and up. Children less than 10 years-old are exempt from the PCR COVID-19 test.
Travelers must test upon arrival and head straight to their accommodation. Once arriving at their accommodation, they are invited to enjoy all amenities while awaiting a negative PCR COVID-19 result (typically, 24 hours or less). After arrival test, no restrictions on movement throughout the island and Day 4, 8 and 14 testing are still required. See government guidance for immunized travelers here.
Travelers must head directly to their pre-booked accommodation after completing arrival testing at L.F. Wade International Airport. No other stops are permitted. The traveler needs to quarantine at their accommodation for four days until receiving a negative result from the Day 4 COVID-19 test.
EFFECTIVE JUNE 6, 2021, NON-IMMUNIZED TRAVELERS will be subject to supervised quarantine for up to 14 days in a designated facility at their own expense.
Non vaccinated travelers are required to wear a Traveler Wristband for the first 14 days of their stay. Traveler Wristbands will be distributed during testing upon arrival. Travelers who do not wish to wear the wristband will be required to quarantine at their accommodation for 14 days.
After negative day 4 test results are received, the traveler’s movement is no longer restricted, and the traveler is permitted to move throughout the island in accordance with any regulations in place by the Government of Bermuda at the time of visit.
In addition, the traveler will have to take your own temperature twice per day and report via online portal.
Day 4, 8 and 14 testing are required. All travelers must take a COVID-19 test, administered on Day 4, Day 8 and Day 14 at convenient testing centers across the island. The location and time of each of your tests will automatically be booked for you, so please do not arrange separate appointments. You will receive email reminders 24 hours before each test. To reschedule the time, please call the government’s COVID-19 hotline: 441/444-2498 (open 9 am - 9pm).
Children aged 17 or under are not required to be immunized. Non-immunized children aged 17 or under assume the status of their adult companions. Children traveling with non-immunized adults will be subject to quarantine. Children traveling with immunized adults are not subject to non-immunized traveler quarantine. However, children 10 and up are required to follow the same testing protocols as their parents while on island.
4. Purchase Insurance
Travelers must also purchase insurance that would cover COVID-19 should they fall ill while in Bermuda. Allianz offers travel insurance that covers COVID-19 related health/medical expenses for travelers from the U.S.
Compliance of pre-departure protocols is mandatory by the Government of Bermuda.
