If you are a U.S. citizen in The Bahamas and you need to return to the United States we urge you to leave now. This is the best information we have at the time of sending this message, and flights could change. Please check with your airline. U.S. citizens who choose to remain in The Bahamas should prepare to do so for an indefinite period of time.

On March 23, 2020, at 7:00pm, the Prime Minister of The Bahamas announced additional measures in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. These additional measures include closing all airports of The Bahamas to incoming international flights carrying visitors, starting at 9:00am on Tuesday, March 24 (including private airports), until March 31, 2020. We cannot predict if, or for how long, the Bahamian government may extend these orders.

Please remember that evacuation and charter flights by the U.S. government do not reflect standard practice, and should not be relied upon. U.S. citizens should make plans using commercial travel options while they are available, and do so immediately.

Actions to Take: 
Follow the instructions and regulations coming from the Bahamian government; please consult for the latest information on COVID-19 from the Government of The Bahamas.
