The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to advise members of the public that the suspension of travelers directly from, or transiting through, Haiti will continue with effective 12 May 2021 for 30 days.

The Bahamas Government found it necessary to take this measure, given the continuing uncertainties regarding the management of the pandemic in Haiti.

The  Bahamas Government also remains concerned that the Government of Haiti still has not accepted the Astrazeneca vaccine offered under the World Health Covax Facility, and still has not put an alternative measure for vaccination in place.

As The Bahamas seeks to manage the spread of the virus within its own borders, the Government, based on the advice of Health Officials, deemed it necessary to take this measure to prevent risk to the nationals and residents of The Bahamas, as well as visitors to our shores.
