White sandy beaches, clear blue water, and all the cocktails you can drink: who wouldn't want to visit the Bahamas? It is simply the ideal destination if you want to relax or if you just want to get away from the stresses of your daily life. It should, however, be noted that you may need to obtain a visa before you visit this tropical wonderland via boat or plane - or swimming, although iVisa does not recommend it.

Lucky for you, the Bahamas’ visa policy contains a list of 120 visa waiver countries, meaning that all the citizens of those countries identified can travel to the Bahamas without applying for a visa. Let it be noted that the period of time which they can spend there varies greatly from 30 days to 8 months, depending on nationality (although most visitors don't stay more than a month anyways).

To find out if you need a visa to cross the border, all you need to do is use our Visa Checker Tool. You can see it in the right top corner of the page you are currently on. Simply click the button, choose your country of origin from the menu, and select the Bahamas as your destination. The result will let you know if you need a visa or not.

If you do not need a visa, all you need to present at the border is your passport. However, if you do indeed need a visa, you can apply at the nearest Bahamian diplomatic mission or British diplomatic mission in-person - whichever is the most convenient for you. iVisa's Visa Checker Tool provides a list of embassies with contact info so that you do not have to look for it on your own.

Something else worth mentioning is that people who travel via cruise ship are also required to apply for a visa, and they need to leave the Bahamas with the same cruise ship they arrived on.

At the moment, iVisa cannot assist you with the Bahamas visa process, although we provide some useful tips and info before you travel. For starters, you need a passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of your arrival in the Bahamas. Additionally, at least one blank page in your passport is necessary.

As for the rest of the requirements, we think that it is best if you contact the diplomatic mission or embassy that issues Bahamas visas in your country of origin. The information you find online is vast, but it is often not the most reliable. The embassy is the best point of reference for inquiries about recent changes to Bahamas visa rules and regulations. The info you see online should be used as a reference or starting point only.

We regret that we cannot help you obtain your Bahamas visa at the moment, though we hope that the above information proves useful. If you have any other questions regarding this visa, iVisa has an excellent and free support service that is at your disposal 24/7.
