Notes About Bahamas Visas For U.S. Passport Holders

Visas are not required for US citizens to travel to the Bahamas for tourism and business purposes. Detailed travel requirements per the US State Department Website are below, please cross-reference this website for any recent travel requirement changes and more information:

Air Travel: All US citizens are required to have a valid US passport with 2 blank visa pages in order to enter The Bahamas, as well as to enter or re-enter the United States when traveling by air. Travelers should be prepared to show return/onward travel arrangements to immigration authorities if requested. Passengers arriving with one way tickets could be denied entry.

Sea Travel: U.S. citizens traveling to The Bahamas by sea on private watercraft or most commercial vessels must have a valid passport. Those traveling by sea on an officially-designated “closed-loop cruise”, meaning that the port of entry is the same port as the port of re-entry upon return to the US, may enter using a passport, passport card, or other Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) compliant document, however, it is prudent to obtain a passport before travel in case of an unforeseen emergency that requires a cruise passenger to disembark and return by air. (Please verify with your cruise line if your intended cruise is designated a closed-loop cruise.) Travelers arriving via private watercraft are charged docking fees.
