Visitors to the Bahamas Won’t Have to Quarantine Upon Arrival Starting Nov. 1

Travelers to the Bahamas will be allowed to skip the islands’ mandatory quarantine starting Nov. 1 if they continually prove they are negative for COVID-19, the Ministry of Tourism & Aviation confirmed to Travel + Leisure on Friday.
