Apply online for your Bermuda Arrival Card
Last updated: December 2022
Bermuda has long been a favorite destination for honeymooners and those who love to escape the business of daily life. This island is renowned for its stunning beaches, which remain largely untouched, great golf courses, and stunning coastal resorts. What’s not to love about Bermuda?
Getting to Bermuda has never been easier! But before you go, it is mandatory to complete the digital Bermuda Arrival Card prior to your arrival on the island. This is not a visa, but a simple form to inform authorities of your travel purpose, health status, and if you have anything to declare. Find out more below and fill out the form online through iVisa.
What is the Bermuda Arrival Card?
It’s a simple form that the Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) requires visitors to complete before arrival, to capture visitor details such as emergency contact details, critical tourism statistics, and more. It is not a visa, so if you need a visa to visit, live, or work in Bermuda, please make sure to apply in advance.
It is the same arrival card that travelers needed to fill out before the pandemic started and is meant as an online visitor arrivals process for Bermuda. The arrival card replaces the Bermuda Travel Authorization form that was in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated forty-dollar fee.
The simple online form will take less than a few minutes to complete online, and it lets you complete all customs procedures faster at the airport. You also do not need to fill out the pink arrival card that you’ll be offered on the airplane.
Who needs the Bermuda Arrival Card?
All non-resident travelers arriving by air at L. F. Wade International Airport must complete the digital form accurately and go through the approval process before arriving in the country. Even those air passengers that already have an approved Travel Authorization that they previously completed, must obtain the Bermuda Arrival Card.
Non-residents that are arriving by sea, for example, by cruise ship, are not required to complete the digital form for visitors.
Validity of the Bermuda Arrival Card
The Bermuda Arrival Card is a single-entry document and is valid for your stay of up to 90 days in Bermuda. If you want to re-enter the country, the Bermuda government requires you to complete the form again, so they can accurately capture visitor data.
Transiting through Bermuda
It is not necessary to fill out this form if you are just transiting through Bermuda at the airport, and do not enter the country.
When should I apply for the Bermuda Arrival Card?
You can apply for the Bermuda Arrival Card on the same day of your travel to this country, but you must ensure you have the deliverable before arriving in Bermuda. We advise you to apply before your travel date to avoid any problems or delays.
