Bermuda Tourism Authority has announced the island will reopen for international commercial air service for visitors as of July 1, the authority said.
The reopening is part of its fourth phase of economic reopening after successful management of COVID-19 to date.
Bermuda´s reopening plan features five stages of visitors travelling to and from Bermuda including: 1) pre-departure; 2) in-flight; 3) upon arrival; 4) on-island and 5) returning home. In the coming days, Government officials are working to finalise a policy that will enable travellers who test negative 72 hours in advance and who also test negative upon arrival in Bermuda to have freedom of movement to enjoy the island´s experiences, adhering to local health guidelines in place at the time of visit.
The re-opening reflects Bermuda´s success in managing the impact of the pandemic, with a high volume of testing and contact tracing following lockdown and shelter-at-home measures.
The Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) is an independent, non-government, entity and the official destination marketing organization for the island country. The Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) promotes Bermuda globally as a world-class destination for leisure and group travel and tourism investment.
