Bermuda is eliminating their travel authorization process as of November 14, after which 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.
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 is a simple online form that can be completed in mere minutes, prior to travel to the island.

Previously, the Bermuda Government announced that the legislation brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, including the use of the TA, would come to an end on November 30, 2022.
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.”
Tracy Berkeley, interim Chief Executive Officer at BTA said, “Bermuda’s tourism industry fully supports the decision to eliminate the travel authorisation and bring the island’s public health emergency orders to an end. We are especially appreciative of our partners in the Ministry of Health for the collaborative approach to solving our shared challenges. This is exciting news that will help to restore a frictionless travel experience for our visitors.”
Currently, visitors to Bermuda no longer require pre-travel or on-island COVID testing.
The online visitor arrivals process can be completed in three easy steps.
There is no approval process, no fee, and once the required fields have been completed the form is available as a downloadable link or by email. All non-residents who travel to Bermuda as of November 14 must complete the Bermuda Arrival Card even if they have previously completed a travel authorisation form. Hard copy ‘Pink Forms’ will be available for non-resident travellers who have not completed the digital Bermuda Arrival Card. There is no need to accept a ‘Pink Form’ if you have completed the digital form
A preliminary version of the form can be found at www.BermudaArrivalCard.com and testing and optimisation will be complete in the next few days.
