The Bermuda government announced the elimination of the travel authorisation (TA) process some three weeks earlier than originally scheduled.
The move is expected to streamline the overall travel experience for visitors.
The requirement for an approved TA, the associated forty-dollar fee, and proof of vaccination or medical insurance will no longer be a condition of travel from 14NOV, 2022. In its place, the Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) will reinstate the Bermuda Arrival Card, a digital form for visitors only, which was in place prior to the onset of the pandemic.
The form captures visitor data, generating critical tourism statistics for the country and provides visitors, who opt-in, with relevant, timely communications to enhance their stay. The Bermuda Arrival Card can be completed in mere minutes, prior to travel to the island.
The Minister of Tourism, the Hon Vance Campbell said, "Our Government has delivered on our pledge to protect the health and safety of our residents and visitors and now with the earlier end date for the TA, travel to Bermuda will be simpler for our visitors."
With full support of the Bermuda Travel Association (BTA) and the Bermuda Hotel Association (BHA), this move comes at a crucial time before the US Thanksgiving travel period, and should also support demand in time for the return of three additional direct flights from Miami, JFK, and Toronto."
