Share this:

The Bahamas has announced that it will extend its vaccination requirement for cruise ship visitors from 1 November 2021 to 2022. The extension was recently announced by the Bahamian government, according to Cruisehive.com.

Tourism, Investments, and Aviation Minister, Chester Cooper said, “We believe vaccination is the right approach to attract tourists to our shores in a balanced and responsible way,”

The Bahamas was one of the first cruise destinations to implement a vaccine mandate for cruise ships earlier this year, which had caused several cruise lines to change their onboard policies from COVID-19 vaccine optional to COVID-19 vaccine mandatory.

The Bahamas government requires all cruise passengers aged 12 and older to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
