3. Get Tested by Bermuda Authorities Upon Arrival and Quarantine at Accommodation
In addition, all travelers must be tested by Bermuda authorities upon arrival at the airport.
Immunized Travelers from the United States and Canada must test upon arrival and head straight to their accommodation. Once arriving at their accommodation, traveler will quarantine while awaiting a negative PCR COVID-19 result (typically, 24 hours or less). You must then test on day 4, 8 and 14. See government guidance for immunized travelers here.
All immunized travelers will be given a red wristband upon arrival. Immunized travelers WITH pretest must wear it until receiving the negative arrival test. Immunized travelers WITHOUT pretest must wear it until receiving the negative DAY 4 test. All unimmunized children travelling with an immunized 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.
Unimmunized travelers must complete their mandatory 14-day quarantine at an accommodation of their choice (at home or other accommodation). Unimmunized travelers will be required to specify if they can quarantine alone or if they will be sharing a household with others. If sharing a household with others, the traveler will have to list the names and contact information for all household members. All adult members of the household will be contacted and asked to sign a waiver agreeing to quarantine with the traveler for the remainder of the traveler’s quarantine. Wear a red wristband during their quarantine. And get tested 14 days after the traveler’s arrival to Bermuda (this test will be scheduled for household members at Perot).

Before returning to the USA effective immediately, the United States requires that all air passengers entering the country will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding their flight as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many of our travel suppliers have made arrangements for on-site COVID-19 testing right at your hotel (view these travel supplier policies).
Reminder-if you do any COVID testing or seek any healthcare while abroad, please retain all receipts for insurance purposes.
