To all our valued visitors,
Our island’s borders are currently closed to non-residents. Bermuda’s airport shut to commercial air service March 20, and vessels, other than vital cargo for our residents, are not allowed to enter our seaport. Shelter-in-place restrictions are effective until April 18.
We realise this is an extraordinary series of events mirroring an extraordinary time. Bermuda’s government has made a very difficult decision—but a necessary one to protect our small island’s health and safety until the risk of COVID-19 subsides and we can re-open and invite you back.
Such tough measures are needed both to support the global effort to stop the spread of coronavirus and lessen the risk of spread among our tiny population.
Rest assured, once normalcy returns and safe travel resumes, we stand ready to welcome you to our beautiful shores.
