Bermuda has announced it will reopen to air travelers beginning July 1.

Passengers arriving at the island's L.F. Wade International Airport must present proof that they tested negative for Covid-19 within 72 hours of departing for Bermuda. 

Transport minister Zane DeSilva told Bermuda's Royal Gazette that visitors will undergo a second test upon arrival and will be required to quarantine in their accommodations until they receive their results. "Depending on the volume of tests, the results are expected to be received within 24 hours, but in most cases, the turnaround time will be less than eight hours," he said.

In a June 12 statement outlining the plan, the Bermuda Tourism Authority said the resumption of air travel "reflects Bermuda's success in managing the impact of the pandemic," noting the island has the world's 12th-highest rate of testing per capita and has had 11 consecutive days of no new cases of Covid-19 as of June 11.
