The controversial Travel Authorization form will be laid to rest on Monday (Nov 13), when the online Bermuda Arrival Card for visitors will be reinstated.

The Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA) issued a reminder this week that “the form captures visitor data, which is critical to our industry as it generates statistics for the country and provides visitors, who opt-in, with relevant, timely communications to enhance their stay”.

“The Bermuda Arrival Card is a simple online form that can be completed in mere minutes, prior to travelling to the island.”

The online visitor arrivals process can be completed in three easy steps.   

  1. Go to www.BermudaArrivalCard.com  
  2. Complete the form accurately and completely with visitor details  
  3. Download the form and present it to immigration officials for inspection either on a mobile device or on paper 

“We are asking for your assistance in communicating the above by placing the link within your confirmation emails, or by any other means by which you correspond with your guests.  

“If you wish to direct them to the Bermuda Tourism website for additional information, the webpage can be found here: https://www.gotobermuda.com/bermuda-arrival-card  

“To be explicitly clear there is no approval process, and no fee, and once the required fields have been completed the form is available as a downloadable link or by email. All non-residents who travel to Bermuda as of November 14th must complete the Bermuda Arrival Card.  

“Hard copy ‘Pink Forms’ will be available for non-resident travellers who have not completed the digital Bermuda Arrival Card in advance.”
