Public Notice! Bahamas Travel Notice

As you may have seen in the media, on January 26, 2024, the U.S. Department of State updated its The Bahamas Travel Advisory and it is at a Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution due to crime. We have received some questions about this and with the Bahamas being a popular spring break destination, we wanted to make sure that you are aware. Please share with people you know who may be traveling to the Bahamas soon. 

  •  Travel Protection: Should anyone want to cancel as a result of seeing press about this warning, normal cancellation fees will apply — travel companies won’t waive them, and this is not a covered reason through the company’s travel protection provider.
  • Embassy Contact Information: We advise travelers to ensure they have the contact information for the nearest U.S. Embassy:

                U.S. Embassy Nassau
