Bahamas

Oversigt

The Bahamas have become a key transhipment supply route for illegal drugs in transit to the US and Europe. The proliferation of drugs crime is integrally linked to violent crime and armed attacks in the Bahamas. Despite concerted efforts by the authorities, the crime rate remains high, particularly on New Providence Island, where the capital Nassau is located. Both petty and serious crime does occur in areas visited by foreign nationals, although is predominantly concentrated within the domestic population.

Sundhed, sygdomme og vaccination

Travellers are advised to consult a travel health specialist or general practitioner (GP) at least four to eight weeks prior to departure.

It is essential to check that all vaccinations are up to date including tetanus-diphtheria and measles, mumps and rubella. Vaccinations against hepatitis A&B and typhoid are recommended.

Travellers likely to have direct contact with animals or visit areas without immediate medical access are advised to have the rabies vaccination.

A Yellow Fever vaccination is required for all travellers entering The Bahamas from a known infected area.

Malaria prophylaxis in the form of Chloroquine is recommended for travellers visiting Great Exuma. Visitors to Great Exuma should take necessary prevention measures to avoid insect bites.

Freeport and Nassau have high quality medical facilities. These can however be expensive and doctors generally request immediate payment prior to or following treatment, irrespective of your insurance policy. If you require treatment it is therefore advisable to keep all receipts form treatment for insurance purposes. Comprehensive travel and medical insurance is recommended. Facilities outside of Freeport and Nassau are limited and evacuation may be required in cases of serious medical emergencies. Although generally adequate, ambulance services in cases of an emergency can be slow.

Blood shortages have been reported at the Princess Margaret Hospital. Those with rare blood types are advised to have information of alternative blood suppliers should the necessity arise.

Like hospitals and other medical facilities, pharmacies are concentrated in Nassau and Freeport.

If on medication you are advised to take sufficient supplies with you for the duration of your stay. In this instance it is also advisable to take a signed letter from a medical physician indicating all medical conditions and prescribed treatment, including generic medication names.

Pas

Passports must be valid for at least six months from the date of departure from The Bahamas.

If travelling to or from The Bahamas via the US your passport will be inspected by American immigration authorities.

It is advisable to carry a photocopy of your passport with you at all times, keeping the original document in a safe, secure place.

Visum

Most European, Australian, American and Canadian nationals do not require a visa to visit The Bahamas for a period of less than 3 months. For travellers wishing to extend their stay for more than three months it is advisable to contact the Department of Immigration in Nassau beforehand. Failure to gain permission from the authorities to overstay the allotted time will result in a severe fine or possible detention. In all instances it is advisable to contact your local Bahamian diplomatic mission to learn of specific requirements. This is particularly applicable if returning via the US where visa waiver agreements may alter your status.

Visa costs vary according to nationality and the duration of your stay. The time required for visa to be processed similarly varies and it is advisable to contact your local Bahamian diplomatic mission at least six weeks before departing.
