To our valued visitors and clients,

Like communities around the world, Bermuda is taking serious steps to help curb the global spread of COVID-19 and protect our island’s residents and visitors.

Bermuda appreciates the support and interest of so many long-time travellers to the island. As global and local situations are evolving rapidly, we encourage you to keep track of tourism updates at this page at

Starting Thursday, March 19, our island’s borders will be closed for two weeks to non-residents. Our airport will also close to all commercial air service effective 11:59 pm Friday, March 20. Visiting vessels will not be allowed to enter our seaport.

We realise this is an extraordinary series of events mirroring an extraordinary time. Bermuda’s government has made a very difficult decision—but a necessary one to protect our small island’s health and safety until the risk of COVID-19 subsides and we can re-open and invite you back.

In the meantime, we are working closely with our hotels, guest houses and vacation rental properties to assist any visitors who remain on the island to fly out today (Thursday, March 19) and tomorrow (Friday, March 19). Such tough measures are needed to support the global effort to stop the spread of coronavirus and lessen the risk of spread among our tiny population.  

For airport/air service information, please see: 

As you can imagine, these decisions do not come without serious consideration as tourism and hospitality is a vital part of Bermuda’s economy and way of life. However, our highest priority is the health and well-being of our residents and our visitors. Rest assured, once normalcy returns and safe travel resumes, we stand ready to welcome you to our beautiful shores.
