Nassau, Bahamas - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to inform the Bahamian Public that The United States Federal Government shutdown, now in its 27th day, has not affected relations between our countries.

The Ministry is assured by U.S. Government Officials that Bahamian citizens are still able to access consular services such as the acquisition of visas and that critical areas of mutual interest, inclusive of maritime border security arrangements between the two countries, such as the Comprehensive Maritime Agreement and Operation Bahamas Turks and Caicos are not impacted.

The Governments of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and United States of America remain strong strategic allies and are committed to their long-term partnership in areas of mutual interests.
