Bahamas closing airports, seaports to United States visitors due to COVID-19
Effectively immediately, its national air carrier, Bahamasair, will cease all outgoing flights to the United States. Tourism officials announced the opening of its border to international visitors on July 1. To accommodate visitors scheduled to leave after Wednesday, July 22, outgoing commercial flights will be permitted, according to the prime minister. Private international flights and charters for Bahamians, residents and visitors will be permitted. Parts of the Bahamas still continue to feel suffered setbacks from Hurricane Dorian, which slammed into the northern Bahamas in September 2019.
