Applying for a Bermuda Travel Authorisation

Before travelling to Bermuda, take a moment to learn about our entry requirements, on-island health and safety measures, testing capacity and more.

All Travellers to Bermuda must follow the requirements set-out in the Quarantine (COVID-19) (No. 3) Order 2020.

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 4 test result.

Children under the age of two do not need to have a COVID-19 PCR test or a Travel Authorisation to travel to Bermuda.

All Visitors, 2-years-old and older, must apply for and complete a Bermuda COVID-19 Travel Authorisation 1 to 3 days prior to arriving in Bermuda in order to travel to the island. Failure to do so could result in repatriation to the gateway city.

Bermuda Residents, 2-years-old and older must also apply for and complete a Bermuda COVID-19 Travel Authorisation 1 to 3 days prior to arriving in Bermuda. Failure to do so is an offence, and a Travel Authorisation completed on arrival will attract a fee of $1000. Failure to pay the fee is also an offence.

All visitors 2-year-old and older must have a negative pre-arrival test taken within four days of arrival in Bermuda.

Immunised residents and visitors, 2 years and older, must test upon arrival, day 4, and day 10 while in Bermuda.

Immunised residents, 2-years-old and older without a pre-arrival test, will quarantine for the first 4 days in Bermuda. The requirements for a valid test can be found here.

Unimmunised travellers will quarantine for 14 days in their accomodation, or a self-funded location. 

Unimmunised children travelling with immunised parents/guardians must test upon arrival, day 4, day 10, and day 14 while in Bermuda.

Effective September 26, 2021:

Unimmunised travellers must complete their mandatory 14 day quarantine at an accommodation of their choice (at home or other accommodation).

Unimmunised travellers 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 traveller 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 traveller for the remainder of the traveller's quarantine,
    • wear a red wristband during their quarantine, and
    • get tested 14 days after the traveller's arrival to Bermuda (this test will be scheduled for household members at Perot). 

For your specific travel instructions before and after arrival, please select one of the following:

Are you immunised?

Are you unimmunised?

Are you travelling with a minor?

Travelling as an unaccompanied Minor?

Are you a Mariner?
