BUCKET LIST EXUMAS DAY TOURAN UNFORGETTABLE DAY IN THE BAHAMAS
Bahamas Day Tour Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a passport to take the Bucket List Bahamas Day Tour?
Yes – All Day Tour travelers must have a valid ID / Passport to take the tour. You will be entering the Bahamas from the US (and upon returning to the US) which requires a valid passport. Please be sure to upload/send a copy with a photo of your passport to the tour operator in advance of your trip. This is a requirement.
What Are the Travel Requirements?
IMPORTANT: VISA/ESTA – if your travel VISA is in an old passport, you must bring it. You will be denied boarding privileges if you do not have the correct travel documents, and no refunds will be issued.
Entry requirements differ depending on what country you are a resident and citizen of. Check the official Islands of the Bahamas website for the most up-to-date information on what documentation is necessary for your country of origin.
NOTE: Where a minor child is traveling with only one parent, a notarized letter of permission from the legal guardian(s)/parent(s) not traveling may be requested. If traveling with non-parents, a notarized letter from the minor’s legal guardian(s)/parent(s) would be required. The letter should indicate that the chaperones are authorized to travel outside the country with the minor, as well as permit the chaperones to seek medical attention for the minor, if necessary.
We will also send you a more detailed requirement list upon confirmation of your tour.
