What Is the Bahamas Tourist Visa?

The tourist visa to enter the Bahamas is an electronic visa that you apply for online. This visa authorizes a traveler to enter the country. The Bahamas embassy or consulate issues it on behalf of the Bahamian government.

This travel document can be issued as a single-entry or multiple-entry visa depending on your travel needs. Travelers must present their Bahamian visa at the border or airport on arrival.

Please note the Bahamas visa is not the Bahamas travel health visa.

How long is the Bahamas tourist visa valid for?

A Multiple Entry is only valid for 90 days after arrival, while a multiple-entry visa can be obtained for 90 days, six months, or twelve months. The length of time depends on the length of your intended stay.

To apply for a multiple-entry visa, you must have obtained at least three approved single-entry visas for the Bahamas in the past.

Do Nigerian Citizens Need a Tourist Visa to Enter the Bahamas?

Nigerian passport holders must have a valid passport and an approved Bahamas tourist visa to visit the Bahamas.

Do minors require the Bahamas visitor visa?

All family members, including minors, require a visa to enter the Bahamas. If the child is not old enough to apply for themselves, their parent or guardian must do so on their behalf.

Requirements for the Bahamas Visa for Nigerian Citizens

Visa applicants will need to present the following information to complete their Bahamas visa application:

  • A valid national passport that will be valid for at least six months from their intended arrival in the Bahamas.

  • 2 digital passport photos, which you can obtain through our passport photo service.

  • Supporting documents including financial statements, proof of a hotel reservation, flight itinerary, copies of old visas, and children's birth certificates (if traveling with minors).

  • Those traveling to the Bahamas via a cruise or for a cruise must have a valid American visa.

  • An email address to receive application status updates, requests for more information, or other requirements and to receive your final visa.

  • A debit or credit card to pay the Bahamas visa fees. Please note you will be required to upload a picture of the physical credit card to complete the application.

Bahamas Visa Application Process for Citizens of Nigeria

  3. Upload the supporting documents and submit your application.

Once you have submitted the application, our team will send you a confirmation email and start processing your application according to your chosen processing time. Your final document will be sent via email. Remember to check your spam folder if you do not see it in your inbox.

COVID-19 Requirements or Restrictions

The Bahamas Ministry of Foreign Affairs relaxed COVID-19 protocols after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gave the Island a Level 1 ranking on the COVID-19 Travel Risk Advisory Rating scale.

Thus, travelers to the Bahamas no longer need to apply for a Bahamas Travel Health Visa nor produce a COVID-19 vaccination certificate to enter the country. However, you may still need to show proof of other vaccinations, such as yellow fever.

Do I need a COVID-19 test?

From September 2022, the Bahamas also dropped all COVID-19 testing requirements regardless of your COVID-19 vaccination status.

If we’ve convinced you to travel to the Bahamas, apply for your tourist visa and start packing. However, if you’re still uncertain, be sure to read our guide to the different visa types or contact our 24-hour customer service team for more information.
