Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, Investments and Aviation, the Hon. Chester Cooper spoke to members of the media outside of Cabinet where he comments on the lifting of the vaccine requirement for travel in the United States.

He said, “freedom and ease of travel for people everywhere is going to be extremely positive for The Bahamas. Persons coming from Europe who might wish to travel to the USA and onward to The Bahamas, for example, or the other way around no longer need to be concerned about this. This will cause significant seamlessness in terms of travel to the USA and I think this will be overall proof positive for The Bahamas. We’re looking forward to the amendment.”
