Bermuda Visa Requirements


Bermuda Entry Visa

Effective March 1, 2014, Bermuda Department of Immigration has made a change in visa requirements. Earlier all Visa Controlled Nationals including tourists, business visitors, and work permit holders (i.e. foreign nationals coming to Bermuda on a job) required to get a separate Bermuda Entry Visa from British Embassies in their respective countries. 
This requirement of separate Bermuda entry visa has been now abolished for all countries, for both cruise as well as air travelers to Bermuda. But there are other requirements to be met depending on your nationality. So read the following section carefully: 
If you are a national of USA, UK or Canada, you do not require any kind of visa to enter Bermuda irrespective of whether you are a tourist, business visitor or a work permit holder going on a job. You are all set to go once you have a valid passport and return tickets (note that U.S. passport cards are not acceptable in air travel). 
However nationals of countries other than USA, UK and Canada will require a multiple re-entry visa (MRV) for USA, UK or Canada (as applicable depending on one's port of transit). This is because such nationals will need to transit and return through US, UK or Canada. This Multi Re-Entry Visa (MRV) ensures that a visitor is able to leave Bermuda, and return to his/her own country via US, UK or Canada (as the case may be). 
NOTE: A multiple entry US, UK or Canada visa (with valid passport) is enough for tourists to enter Bermuda. But visitors coming on work or business (short or long term) also require a work permit. The Bermuda based company inviting you to work in the island needs to apply for this work permit (which may be a short term or periodic permit) and the permit is issued by Bermuda Immigration Department. 
So nationals who require and have valid MRV (Multi Re-Entry Visa for US, UK or Canada) can now visit Bermuda without requiring any separate visa for Bermuda or visa waiver. So tourists, persons on business and work permit holders from such countries (including who were earlier Visa Controlled Nationals) now do not need a separate entry visa for Bermuda. However the following conditions must be met by them: 
1) Passport should be valid for minimum 45 days from the date of departure from Bermuda or expiry of work permit (as the case may be). Note that this requirement of minimum 45 days passport validity applies only for nationals requiring and holding MRV. Others (i.e. nationals of US, UK and Canada) only need to have a passport valid till the return journey is completed; 
2) One must show the MRV on arrival in Bermuda which must be valid for minimum 45 days beyond the date of departure or expiry of work permit (as applicable); 
3) The traveler must have valid return or onward tickets. 
If you are traveling to Bermuda by air, you must carry a return ticket if you are returning to the same place you came from. If you are making an onward travel to some other country, you must show an onward ticket. You won't be allowed entry if you land up with a one way ticket to Bermuda. 
Tickets can be e-tickets or itinerary issued by the airline having Booking Reference Number and clearly showing your next destination and departure date and time. If you are making an onward travel to another country, you should also have a valid visa for that country if your nationality so requires. Failing any of the above, you won't be allowed entry into Bermuda. 

Transiting through the US, UK, Canada

Several visitors have asked me if a multi re-entry visa for US or UK is still required if a foreign national (other than of US, UK or Canada) is transiting through New York or London (Gatwick), and boarding a connecting flight to Bermuda. 
The answer is... Yes it is required. I had asked the following questions to the Chief Immigration Officer of Bermuda Dr. Danette Ming in June 2014 to clarify the matter... 
Q. "If a foreign national from a country (say Dubai) flies directly to Gatwick (London) and takes a connecting flight from Gatwick to Bermuda, and returns to Dubai by the same route, will he still require a Multi Re-entry Transit visa for UK to enter Bermuda? It's a case of onward and through journey to Bermuda without visiting UK, and same way back. A similar such case can be when one flies to Bermuda through New York without visiting US. 
A. "What is the person's nationality?" 
Q. "One is an Egyptian and the other is a national of Philippine." 
A. "Multi re-entry visas are still required." 

How to get Transit Visa for UK

If you are a tourist transiting through the UK to Bermuda and require an MRV, you need to apply for UK Direct Airside Transit Visa (DATV) which is usually issued for 6 months. However you can use DATV if you are not required to pass through immigration control in the UK. 
If you are going to Bermuda on work, you need to apply for a type of Standard Visitors Visa which allows you to transit through UK within 48 hours, but will not allow you to stay in the UK any longer during your transits. This visa is issued for 6 months, 2 years, 5 years and 10 years. You must clearly show the reason for your transit and attach a copy of your work permit. 

Permanent Residents of the US, UK or Canada

If you are a foreigner resident in US, UK or Canada and have a PR card, then while entering Bermuda as a tourist, you must produce the PR card, a valid passport (both must be valid for a minimum of 45 days beyond your intended stay in Bermuda) together with evidence of return ticketing. Bermuda Entry Visas are not a requirement. 

Job Holders on Work Permits

All foreign nationals (except for nationals of the US, UK and Canada) must have an MRV of either the US, UK or Canada (i.e. the country they are transiting through to arrive in Bermuda) and that must be valid for minimum 45 days beyond the duration of the work permit. 
So, for example, if you are an Ugandan and you have got a work permit in Bermuda for 3 years, and if you are transiting through London to get to Bermuda, you must have an MRV (in this case a Standard Visitors Visa of the UK) which should be valid for a minimum 3 years and 45 days, otherwise you won't be allowed entry into Bermuda. In fact, following the application, when the Bermuda-based employer receives your Work Permit from Bermuda's Department of Immigration, they will send you the work permit along with a checklist which will also mention about this MRV requirement.  
At the time of renewal of work permits, the MRV (if applicable to the foreign national) must be valid through the period for which the renewal is requested. Otherwise the new work permit will not be issued by the Department of Immigration. So this means, either the renewal process should get initiated early, or better, you should try to get an MRV which has a validity sufficiently longer than the work permit duration... in the above example, a 5-year MRV would be a good choice.  
If a dependant or a non-Bermudian spouse of a Bermudian is arriving in Bermuda to take up residence, then the 45 days validity of MRV is not required, because his/her stay in the island is considered permanent in nature. 

Points to note

  • Before you can enter Bermuda, you need to fill up a couple of forms -  
  • 1) Immigration form where you need to mention the country you are coming from, next destination, address in Bermuda, passport details etc, and 
    2) Customs form where you need to declared items you are bringing in, particularly the ones which are not allowed or dutiable. Go through Bermuda Custom Duty to know about what and how much you can bring. 
  • Bermuda these days insist on passport including for children of all ages. Also a passport is more useful in case you need help from your embassy or consulate. Additionally, if you choose to travel elsewhere from Bermuda or decide to stay for a longer period of time, a passport becomes a necessity. 
  • If you are a permanent resident of US and do not hold US Passport, you will need to show proof of right of abode in the US on arrival. Acceptable documents as proof includes: 
    1) Permanent Residence Card, or 
    2) Original certificate of U.S. naturalization, or  
    3) Original certificate of U.S. citizenship.  
    Additionally a government issued photo ID is required for ages above 16. 
  • If you are a permanent resident of UK and do not hold UK Passport, then you need to show proof that no limit has been placed on your stay in the UK. 
  • If you are a permanent resident of Canada and do not hold Canadian Passport, then you will need to show proof of right of abode in Canada (i.e. the Permanent Resident Card) on arrival. 
  • Married women who are traveling under their married name but whose identification is under their maiden name should also carry their marriage certificate or a certified copy. 
  • Since January 23, 2007 all persons including US citizens travelling by air between the USA and a place such as Canada, Central/South America, the Caribbean or Bermuda are required to present a valid passport when entering or re-entering USA. Passport Cards are not accepted for air travel.

    Hi Raj. Your answers on this topic have been excellent. I have a question. I am from Trinidad and Do NOT need a visa to travel to the UK. I have a job offer in  Bermuda and will travel through the US to get to Bermuda. My US b1/b2 Visa will expire in 6months and my contract in Bermuda is 1 year. Will I need to have my US visa be valid for 1 year to get my work permit approved , or will they consider that I can transit out of Bermuda through the UK as a viable alternative ? Of course I can apply to have my US visa renewed in Bermuda. But I am concerned that my 6month visa expiry(US) will hamper my work permit ....looking forward to your response. 
    Raj ( September 2022 
    Hi, the work permit process is independently done and usually does not depend on your current visa status, because many foreigners apply for their MRV visa for the US/UK in parallel to the work permit process. The US/UK visa validity comes into play when you land in Bermuda and do your immigration. This is when the papers are checked and you need to show that your UK/US visa is valid minimum of 45 days beyond your work permit. Since you are transiting through the US while entering Bermuda, the Bermuda Immigration will likely assume that you will also return through the US. That you can always return through the UK without requiring any UK visa is something you need to reason out with them, and that should be possible. Suggest you write to Bermuda Immigration and get an official confirmation on this which can be a handy document to carry. 
    Lavenia (August 2022) 
    Hi, I am a fiji citizen and am also currently residing in Fiji. I have being offered a job  in Bermuda and am kindly awaiting my work permit approval. Question: Which transit US visa do I need to apply? And do I apply once my work permit is approved? Thank you. 
    Raj ( August 2022 
    Hello, you will need to apply for a Multi Re-Entry Visa (MRV) for the US... it can be a visitor's visa which is issued for up to 10 years or less, however, it should be valid for a minimum of 45 days beyond the term (i.e. validity period) of your Bermuda work permit. One can apply for a US visitor's visa independently by paying the visa fee for the number of years for which it is required along with producing other standard documentation. However, if you want to justify your requirement for the visa by mentioning your job in Bermuda, then you will ideally need to produce a copy of your work permit when making the visa application. Otherwise, you can apply for a US visa simply as a visitor who should be eligible to re-enter the US multiple times over a specified period by paying the applicable fee. 
    Ritesh (April 2022) 
    Hi Raj, we are planning to take a cruise from the US to Bermuda, I need some assistance, I'm Canadian citizen, my wife has Indian Passport with Canadian Permanent Residence (PR) status with US multi entry visa and two children both have Canadian passports. We are boarding the cruise from the US.  Are We ok to travel, Does my wife need Bermuda visa and she can board from US? Thanks. 
    Raj ( April 2022 
    Hi, Bermuda itself does not require any visa for tourists. Since your wife has a multi-entry visa for the US (which should be valid for a minimum of 45 days from the intended date of departure from Bermuda), she is okay to visit Bermuda from the US. As Canadian nationals, the rest of you do not need any entry visas for the US and therefore there is no issue in taking a cruise from the US to Bermuda. Suggest you take a confirmation on this from your cruise line as well. 
    Danku Emmanuel (February 2022) 
    Hi, is Direct Airside Transit Visa the same as multi re-entry visa? Coming to Bermuda through the UK, do I have to secure valid visa or residence permit or work permit before I can apply for the UK transit visa? 
    Raj ( February 2022 
    Hi, UK Direct Airside Transit Visa is a short-term visa. In order to work in Bermuda, your Multi Re-Entry Visa for the UK needs to be valid through the work permit term + 45 days. So, you should apply for a Standard Visitor's Visa which can be issued for up to 10 years depending on your requirement. Instead of independently applying as a visitor, if you want to justify your requirement by citing the job in Bermuda, you should ideally produce a copy of the work permit while applying for the UK Visa. 
    Priyank Pradeep Umale (January 2022) 
    I am an Indian national and my employer has applied for Bermuda work permit. They have asked me to apply for travel visa through US, UK or Canada. Can you please let me know which country visa is easier to get and what type of visa needs to be raised. 
    Raj ( January 2022 
    You should apply for a visa through the UK. It has become difficult to get such visas through the USA, and Canada is further away. You need to apply for a multi-entry Standard Visitors Visa for the UK (you may reconfirm this with the nearest British Embassy or a Visa Consultant). 
    Note that a muti-entry visa through the UK, USA or Canada should remain valid until your work permit expires + 45 days... this is a Bermuda Immigration requirement and this will help you get back to your home country during the holidays and return to work in Bermuda. The Standard Visitors Visa for the UK can be issued for up to 10 years.

    If I am a Haitian citizen , what are my requirements to travel to Bermuda? While researching tickets to Bermuda, I notice that the flights fly through either the U.S, UK , etc. Would I have to receive a transit visa for either countries first ? Please assist. 
    Raj ( September 2021 
    Yes, you need multi re-entry visa for the UK or the USA, whichever country you are transiting through. There is no entry visa required for Bermuda itself.

    Hi, you can go as a tourist as long as you have a multi-entry visa for the US and follow all the current Covid protocols of Bermuda including travel authorization etc.

    Hi. I am an Ukrainian, but I have a US green card. Can I come to Bermuda without a visa with a Ukrainian passport and with a green card?  Thank you. 
    Raj ( July 2021 
    Hi, yes you can visit Bermuda as a tourist without requiring any visa if you have a US Green Card, your passport should be valid for a minimum of 45 days from the intended date of departure from Bermuda. 
    Thanosdeep (June 2021) 
    I have been offered a job by a Bermudian company and I accepted the job offer. The company sent me a checklist to apply for a work permit. In the checklist, I noticed multiple entry visas from either of three nations USA, UK, CANADA. So do I need to apply for a visa before obtaining a work permit? 
    Raj ( June 2021 
    The work permit application will be made by the Bermudian company and they will send that to you once they receive it from Bermuda Immigration... so, practically you have no role to play in obtaining the work permit other than providing the information requested by the company as per the checklist. 
    Depending on your nationality, a multi re-entry visa (MRV) for the US, UK or Canada will be required, because unless you are a citizen of one of these three countries, you will need to pass through one of these to enter Bermuda. The same visa can be then used for getting back to your home country on vacations and re-entering Bermuda, and finally returning home for good. For example, in order to transit through the UK, you may apply for a Standard Visitor's Visa which can be issued for up to 10 years and it allows you to transit through the UK within 48 hours of landing. 
    Remember, your multi re-entry visa (MRV) should be valid for minimum 45 days beyond the expiration of the work permit, otherwise, you will not be allowed entry into Bermuda.

Best Regards 
    Raj ( June 2020 
    Hello, yes you are good to go as a visitor, provided you are going through Canada. There is no visit visa for Bermuda and you can not obtain a work permit while on a visit to Bermuda.

    Hello, you can not travel to Bermuda without a valid passport. You need to get your passport renewed at the US through the British Embassy.

    Raj ( February 2020 
    There is no tourist visa required for Bermuda. However, if you are catching a flight from the US to Bermuda, you need to get a multi-reentry visa for the USA which should be valid for minimum 45 days beyond your departure date from Bermuda. 
    Ruth (February 2020) 
    Hello there, am a Ugandan passport holder currently living and working in the United Arab Emirates and would like to visit Bermuda. I have tried looking for the consulate or embassy of Bermuda here and failed. Question is: how do I apply for the multi entry visas for transit? And is there any extra document needed at customs before entering Bermuda? Will be waiting. 
    Raj ( February 2020 
    Hello, Bermuda doesn't have an Embassy or Consulate of its own. Since it's a British Overseas Territory, you need to approach the British Embassy or their agent to get the muti-entry visa through the UK. You will need return air tickets and passport valid for a minimum 45 days from the date of your departure from Bermuda.

    Hi Raj, I am very impressed by your blog and need some assistance for visiting Bermuda. I am an Indian National (Indian Passport) living (residence Permit) in UK.  I have a valid visitor Visa for USA and Canada. Could you please advise if I need a visa to visit Bermuda? It's for a week long Business trip just a couple of meetings. Also, my wife plans to accompany ne on this trip. She has a UK residence permit as well but does not hold a US or Canadian Visa. Does she need a multi entry/ transit Visa for US if our flight is via US? Thanks in advance. 
    Raj ( February 2020 
    Hi, there is no Bermuda entry visa required for tourists or business visitors. If you fly to Bermuda directly from the UK, both of you are good to go. If you fly via the US, you are okay because you have US visitor's visa, however, your wife would require a multi-entry visa for the US.

    Hello, you do not need a tourist visa for Bermuda. You need to ensure that you have a multi re-entry visa for the UK through which you might be transiting to get to Bermuda and that should be valid for minimum 45 days beyond your date of departure from Bermuda.

    Dear Raj, I am a US citizen and have been traveling to Bermuda for many years now. I've been a member of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club since 1993. For two years I have been providing housing for a family in Udaipur, India. The eldest son, Ankit, is like my son, and we have a very good relationship and are in contact every day. I will be in India for a month starting on November 17. I would very much like to bring Ankit to Bermuda as a tourist. I realize that many countries are very sensitive right now about illegal immigration. Ankit who is now 21, was denied a visa to visit the US, despite my assurances that he would never become an illegal immigrant. My question is how would it be possible for him to get a visa to visit Bermuda. If you can help with this, I would be very grateful. Sincerely, 
    Raj (, October 2019) 
    Hello, Bermuda itself doesn't require any visa for tourists. However, his best option would be to take a multiple-entry transit visa for UK (known as Direct Airside Transit Visa or DATV) and travel through London (an airport transfer is usually required from Heathrow to Gatwick). Application for US Transit visa is likely to be refused.

    Hi, you do not need any additional visa for Bermuda. However since you are living in France, it would make sense to travel to Bermuda via UK in which case you (as a Turkish citizen) need UK multi-entry transit visa. If you travel via US, then it's okay.

    Hello Raj. I hope all is well with you. I live in USA and have US diplomatic multi entry visa valid until 2023 (I work for international organisation) I already visited Bermuda and know I can enter without UK visa. However the passport containing my visa has expired two months ago and my consulate in New York issued another one valid for 10 years. I spoke with US immigration services and asked them is it a problem that my visa is in one (expired) passport and my valid passport is used for travel. They (and my employer) told me that that is ok as long as I am in possession of both passports at entry point. Do you think that this will be also ok with Bermuda immigration? 
    Raj (, March 2019) 
    Hi, you need to carry both passports and you should be okay.

    Hello Raj, Hope your doing good. I am currently living in Canada on my work permit have a valid multiple entry visa to Canada, I don't have a US or UK visa. Do I need visa to visit Bermuda. please assist. Thank you. 
    Raj (, January 2019) 
    Hi, If you are flying directly to Bermuda from Canada, you don't need any other visa. Otherwise you need an MRV for US or UK. 
    Christer Swartz (December 2018) 
    I am a US citizen and I would like to visit Bermuda with my girlfriend. She is a permanent resident of the US and she holds a green card, but she is not a US citizen. She is a citizen of Turkey. Can she visit Bermuda with her US green card and Turkish passport? Or would she need a visa, or additional documents? Thanks, 
    Raj (, December 2018) 
    She can visit Bermuda with her US Green Card and Turkish Passport. 
    Sherif Sidhom (July 2018) 
    I'm US citizen and have three visitors from Egypt with valid passports and multiple entry visas to the US. Do they need visa to visit Bermuda on Norwegian Cruse Line? 
    Raj (, July 2018) 
    No, they don't need any visa for Bermuda as long as they have multi-entry visas to the US (valid for minimum 45 days beyond the date of departure from Bermuda). 
    Ellen (June 2018)  
    I am a G4 visa holder in the United States (working for an international organization) and would like to know if I need a visa into Bermuda. My nationality requires visa into the UK. 
    Raj (, June 2018) 
    If your visa to the US allows multi-entry and you intend to get back to the US after visiting Bermuda, then no other visa is required to visit Bermuda.  
    Andrew Golden (June 2018) 
    Hello Raj, I live in the U.S.  My girlfriend is from Ukraine and lives here as a permanent resident with a Ukrainian Passport.  We are planning to travel to Bermuda in August of this year for vacation. Does she need a visa?  Her resident status at the moment is conditional.  We are both returning to the U.S. after our stay in Bermuda. Thank you, 
    Raj (, June 2018) 
    Hi, no she won't need a visa to enter Bermuda, however her conditional PR status should not have any restriction to re-enter the US. 
    Siam (May 2018) 
    Hey Raj, I wanted to just make it clear for my case. I am not a U.S. Citizen but have a Green Card (with a Bangladesh passport). Will I require a visa to enter Bermuda even though I'd be allowed to re-enter the US with my Green Card alone? Thanks in advance! Hoping to bring my family down soon. 
    Raj (, May 2018) 
    Hi, US Green Card is enough for entry to Bermuda. However please ensure that re-entry to US is explicitly mentioned even for your family members. 
    Spandan Shah (May 2018) 
    Hello, We are Indian nationals living in the US (green card approved). Our parents are visiting the US from India. And we would like to take a cruise to Bermuda from Boston. I was wondering if my parents are allowed entry into Bermuda if they have multiple entry visa to the US. Or do we have to apply for a separate visa for Bermuda? Thank you, 
    Raj (, May 2018) 
    Hi, yes your parents can enter Bermuda if they have multi-entry visa for the US. 
    Katina Barton (April 2018) 
    My family will be on a closed loop cruise from New Jersey to Bermuda.  Is it really necessary for all of us to have passports?  Our cruise line doesn't require it. 
    Raj (, April 2018) 
    As already mentioned on my webpage, if you are a US citizen and on a closed loop cruise to Bermuda, you can alternatively use a proof of citizenship and a government issued photo-id in lieu of the passport. 
    Liang Tan (March 2018) 
    Hello Raj, I have a question about traveling to Bermuda by cruise. So I have few relatives came from China to visit me in the U.S. and I am thinking about taking them to Bermuda, the question is do they need any special visa to travel there? They are currently holding China passports with U.S. visas. Thank you in advance! 
    Raj (, March 2018) 
    Hi, no they don't need any separate visa for Bermuda. 
    Salman Sajun (March 2018) 
    Hello, My wife and I have valid working visas for Canada (currently living and working in Canada) with Multiple re entry visas to Canada, USA and UK. Do we require a visa to enter Bermuda? Please advise. Thanks. 
    Raj (, March 2018) 
    Hi, your existing work visa is good enough to visit Bermuda. 
    Steve Silver (March 2018) 
    My Step-son lives in Vladivostok, Russia. His mother and I are married and live in Denver. They have not seen each other in 6+ years. He was just denied a tourist Visa to enter the U.S. for two weeks. Is my son-in-law able to obtain and enter Bermuda for 8 days this summer, July 2018? If so, how long does it take to obtain a MRV? Thanks. 
    Raj (, March 2018) 
    Hi, there has been many cases of MRV being rejected by the US in recent times particularly for Asian countries. He can try through the UK. You can get in touch with a British Embassy near you to know how much time it might take to get a multi-entry transit visa for a Russian. 
    Nimi (March 2018) 
    Hello Raj, My husband is on H1B work visa with USA, we have India passport. Do we need to get a travel visa to visit Bermuda as tourist ? 
    Raj (, March 2018) 
    Hi, all that Bermuda Immigration cares for is to ensure that as tourists you have valid US visas to return to the US. So technically there is no issue here as long as the H1B visa clearly mentions that both of you are covered by that visa for multiple entry to the US. It wont be otherwise a good idea to assume that Bermuda Immigration would be knowledgeable about countless types of visas issued by the US. In any case, I would suggest that you contact the nearest British Embassy for official confirmation on this. 
    Edward Lau (February 2018) 
    Hello, I have a question regrading Entering Bermuda by cruise ship travel from Boston. My family member have Visa Entering in to USA Type M (multiple Entry)  She hold Vietnamese passport with USA Visa, Can she Join with family travel by cruise to Bermuda from Boston? Please help and advise. Thank you. 
    Raj (, February 2018) 
    Hello, yes she can visit Bermuda with multiple entry visa to the US. 
    Lucy (January 2018) 
    We're a family of 4 and we're looking to visit Bermuda for the very first time in April from New York City with a Cruise line. We're not US citizens, we are Permanent Resident Card holders with a valid China passport, therefore do we need a Visa to travel? Thank you for your time. 
    Raj (, January 2018) 
    Visa is not required. 
    Mel (December 2017) 
    Hi my boyfriend was born in Bermuda and is now permanent US resident with green card. The UK passport was obtained as a child expired in 1984ish, can we travel to Bermuda on green card alone? 
    Raj (, December 2017) 
    Hi, a passport is required. 
    A Raj Gopal (December 2017) 
    Dear Mr Raj, I am a Sri Lankan, South African Permanent Residence, currently living in south Africa, do I need visa for entering to Bermuda? I want to use JFK new York for Transit, is It possible to spend one or two days in New York before departing to Bermuda? Thank you 
    Raj (, December 2017) 
    There is no separate visa required for tourists or visitors to visit Bermuda. If you are transiting through the US, you will require a C1-Transit Visa. The US Immigration Officer can allow a stay in the US for few days (not exceeding 29 days) based on your travel plan to other countries (such as Bermuda in your case). 
    Karl (December 2017) 
    Hello Raj, I have another question for you , thanks again for all your help to me, it is greatly appreciated. Question is: I am a USA citizen, when I fly to Bermuda do I need to show customs control a Hotel Booking or other evidence of some other kind of Lodging to clear customs? because my girlfriend from Ukraine will book a hotel for us,  and I will arrive the following day after to Bermuda, and meet her at her Hotel that she booked for us. Please advise me. Thank you again for all your help. Happy Holidays. 
    Raj (, December 2017) 
    Hi, although you need to mention the address of your stay in Bermuda and contact information in the immigration form, the hotel booking is usually not required to be shown. If your name is mentioned in the hotel booking, it would be good to carry a copy of that document (or just a whatsapp copy of the booking). 
    Ryan (December 2017) 
    How many days can a person from Brazil (Brazil national) stay in Bermuda without an visa? Just a visitor. They already have a US visa. Is it 90 days as somebody told me? 
    Raj (, December 2017) 
    Hi, the initial stay duration for a tourist on entry is up to 90 days. However it can be extended to 180 days if a visitor applies to Bermuda Immigration with compelling reasons for longer stay and gets an approval. 
    Karl (November 2017) 
    Hello Raj, How are you doing? Thanks for your reply before...  I have another question for you, if you would be so kind to answer it  I really would appreciate that. My girlfriend received a Multi-Entry visa from the British Embassy in the city of Kiev, Ukraine to travel to Bermuda for a vacation with me. My question is, Can she use that British multi Visa to fly into New York City JFK Airport to transfer flights to Bermuda from New York???  
    I was searching for flights from London but there are not any direct flights to Bermuda from Great Britain at all?  I'm confused  Please help me?  Will she be able to clear customs in New York with a British Visa to go to Bermuda? Please Help me on what to do? 
    Raj (, November 2017) 
    Hi, no she can't pass through New York with a multi-entry visa of the UK. She needs to transit through the UK. British Airways has direct flights from Gatwick airport (South-East England). If she lands at Heathrow airport (London), she needs to transfer to Gatwick. There is an airport bus transfer service which she can avail. In winter the British Airways flight service to Bermuda reduces though due to lack of demand. 
    Joseph (October 2017) 
    Hello. I will be taking a cruise with a friend to Bermuda. Sailing from and returning to the same U.S. port(New York). My friend is a Philippine citizen. She has a green card and resides in the states. She also has a valid U.S. passport. Will she need to get a Visa to enter Bermuda. Thank you.. 
    Raj (, October 2017) 
    She won't need any visa. 
    Tina (October 2017) 
    I was wondering if a minor travelling alone for a cultural exchange needs anything specific other than a document from her parents allowing her to do so and a letter of invitation from the school and family hosting her for 4 weeks as well as her passport. 
    Raj (, October 2017) 
    Yes, those are the documents the child require while travelling to Bermuda from the US, UK or Canada. 
    Matthew (September 2017) 
    Hello, My fiancée and I are planning a trip to Bermuda for a week starting September 17th. I am Canadian, but my fiancée is Japanese with a Canadian permanent residency. Our flight is a straight trip from Toronto, Ontario to Hamilton, Bermuda. Does my fiancée require a multiple entry Visa document? Or will her passport + permanent resident  be enough ? Thank you very much. 
    Raj (, September 2017) 
    Hi, her Canadian PR should be enough to enter Bermuda. She should have a her passport as well as PR valid for minimum 45 days from the intended day of departure from Bermuda. 
    Karl (September 2017) 
    Hi, My question is, My girlfriend will be traveling from the Country of Ukraine to meet me in Bermuda. I live in the states here. Does she need to get any type of visa to enter Bermuda successfully ?? If she does could you please advise what type of visa is needed? She will be flying into New York and will have a connecting flight to Bermuda. Thank You for your time to answer me. 
    Raj (, September 2017) 
    Hi, she would need a multi re-entry transit visa for the US to enter Bermuda. For all nationals other than the US, UK and Canada, Bermuda immigration asks for such multi re-entry visa. 
    Eve (July 2017) 
    Hi Raj, I hold a South African passport but currently reside in the US. I am in the process of applying for my green card, but currently still have a valid US visitors visa. Is this sufficient to travel to Bermuda on holiday? Both my passport and visa are still in date. Thank you! 
    Raj (, July 2017) 
    Hi, US visa should be multi-entry and both visa and passport should be valid for minimum 45 days from the date of departure from Bermuda. You should be then good to go. 
    Ashwin (June 2017) 
    Hi Raj, just wanted to know, I have an Indian passport with multiple  entry visa for USA , planning to make a trip to Bermuda on a cruise do i need a visa please let me know thanks. 
    Raj (, June 2017) 
    Hi, you don't require a Bermuda visa as long as your US Visa and Indian Passport are valid for more than 45 days. 
    Daniela (June 2017) 
    Hi Raj, My mom has an Argentinian passport valid for a year and is traveling from US and coming back through Canada. Her US multi-entry visa expires the day after she is coming back. But the Canadian multi-entry visa (where she is coming back) is good for more than 45 days. Is she good to travel? Thank you! 
    Raj (, June 2017) 
    She is good to travel with a return ticket to Canada. 
    Jeannie (June 2017) 
    Hi, my daughter and I live in Philadelphia, PA USA with H4 visas with my husband who has a H1 visa. We want to join our friends on a cruise from NY to Bermuda. Do either of us need a special visa to enter Bermuda for our cruise? Thank you. 
    Raj (, June 2017) 
    Hi, no you do not need any visa to visit Bermuda as a tourist. 
    Kerrin Cooter (June 2017) 
    Hi there ...Does a South African passport holder AND a Nigerian passport holder require a visa for entry into Bermuda and how much is the visa fee? Also, how do they apply as we are in SA and there is no representation here ! please help!! Kindest regards. 
    Raj (, June 2017) 
    Hi, Bermuda no more requires any tourist/visitors visa. However you must have multi-entry transit visa for USA or UK that you pass through. You also need passport valid for minimum 45 days from date of departure from Bermuda and return tickets. 
    Cici (May 2017) 
    Hello, I am a Chinese citizen travelling to Bermuda for holiday.  I will be going from China to Heathrow, and then Gatewick to Bermuda.  My understanding is I will need a UK transit visa, and no visa for Bermuda. Is this correct? Thank you. 
    Raj (, May 2017) 
    Correct, no visitor's visa is required for Bermuda. 
    Maria (May 2017) 
    We are planning a cruise to Bermuda out of New York on July 30- August 6, 2017 with Norwegian. My mother holds an Italian passport which is going to expire August 28, 2017. She has a valid green card and permanent residency card. Will this be a problem? Thank you for your help. 
    Raj (, May 2017) 
    Passport is required to be valid minimum for 45 days from the date of departure from Bermuda. Check with your cruise line for any exception that can be made on this. 
    Gina Costello (March 2017) 
    Hi Raj .... My family will be visiting Bermuda on a cruise ship the beginning of June 2017. We are all US citizens except for my daughter's husband who resides in the US but has a Nigerian passport. He has a green card and a US driver's license. Will this be all that is required for entry to Bermuda? Thank you in advance. My husband, daughter and myself have visited Bermuda many times and love the country and the people. We are looking forward to sharing this beautiful island with our son-in-law. 
    Raj (, March 2017) 
    Yes, his valid US green card and passport should be enough for the visit. 
    Irina Kurilina (February 2017) 
    I would like to know: it's enough if I have UK visit visa only (I plan to visit Bermuda after visit London)? I'm Russian federation citizen. 
    Raj (, February 2017) 
    Hi, you need multiple entry UK transit visa as well as passport valid minimum for 45 days from date of departure from Bermuda, and also return tickets. 
    Pearl Banj (January 2017) 
    Hi. I hold a Thailand passport but am living in the US as an international student (I have a 10-year U.S. VISA). Do I need to apply for a VISA to enter Bermuda? 
    Raj (, January 2017) 
    Hi, there is no longer any tourist entry visa for Bermuda for any national. As long as you have a visa and passport valid minimum for 45 days from the date of departure from Bermuda and also return tickets to go back to the US, you should be fine. 
    Tianpeng Liu (January 2017) 
    Hi, I have a valid Chinese passport and also have a F1 visa (I am studying in the U.S). Am I OK to visit Bermuda? Thank you! 
    Raj (, January 2017) 
    Yes you can visit subject to having return flight tickets or cruise booking, and passport valid minimum for 45 days from the intended departure from Bermuda. 
    Daniela (January 2017) 
    Hi! I'm an Italian citizen. I will travel to Bermuda for my honeymoon leaving from Canada (Toronto) directly to Bermuda. Do I need the ESTA to come in or since I don't stop in the USA it's not needed ? thanks in advance. 
    Raj (, January 2017) 
    Hi, as long as you have a valid visa to return to Canada or other destination, supporting return or onward tickets and passport valid for minimum 45 days from your intended departure from Bermuda, you should be okay to travel to Bermuda. 
    Joy Ladero (January 2017) 
    Hi, I am philippine national, Iwould like to ask if traveling to Bermuda, where can I get the MRV, in British Consulate in Philippines? and Do I need to secure other documents coming from the sponsor as Bemurdian National? Thank you and hope to hear from u soon. More power! 
    Raj (, January 2017) 
    Hello, Yes you can get your MRV (also known as multi entry transit visa) at the British Embassy / Consulate at your country. You also need a passport valid for minimum 45 days from the date of your departure from Bermuda. Consult your local travel agency to know about all documentation required to secure the UK MRV.  
    Mario (September 2016) 
    Hi, I am a Croatian citizen and we do not need a visa to enter the UK. If we visit Bermuda flying in from London, do we still need UK MR visa, or just a Croatian passport? 
    Raj (, September 2016) 
    Hi, Bermuda's main intent is to ensure that tourists possess required travel documents to return to their respective countries or complete any onward travel. Bermuda itself does not have any visa requirement. So you should be okay. Suggest you re-confirm with nearest British Embassy or write to Bermuda Immigration (contact info already provided in the page). 
    Maria (September 2016) 
    Hi, My husband is a US resident. He has a valid permanent green card and expired passport (Uzbekistan). We want to book a closed loop 7 day cruise NYC - Bermuda - NYC this October. Can he travel with just a green card and US driver license? Thanks 
    Raj (, September 2016) 
    Hi, green card with a valid passport would be required. 
    Olga Caceres (August 2016) 
    Hi, My husband and I are planning a cruise to Bermudas by September 5 and 6 2016. We have Venezuelan passports (more than six months validity) with USA and Canada multiple entries visas. We have a temporary Colombia visa as we live now in Colombia. Do we need any visa to enter in Bermudas? Thanks 
    Raj (, August 2016) 
    Bermuda doesn't require a separate tourist visa if you have multi entry transit visa for US/UK (i.e. the country you would be travelling through). 
    Timothee (July 2016) 
    Hello, I plan visiting Bermuda soon, I work in the US as a French citizen, with a working visa (E2) and would like to know if need to do any paperwork. Also my parents are planning to come from France also, either from London or transiting through NY (in that case they need an ESTA). Is there also any paperwork? In advance, thanks a lot for the help. 
    Raj (, July 2016) 
    Hi, if your visa allows multiple entry to the US, then you need only valid passport and return tickets. Same with your parents if they are returning to the US, otherwise a multi entry visa for the UK. 
    Nad (June 2016) 
    Hi, I want to travel to Bermuda by air from July 8-11. I have a US Green card but it expires July 15. I know 100% that its is valid for re-entry to the US but just wanted to make sure it is acceptable in Bermuda. 
    Raj (, June 2016) 
    Hi, you should be okay as long as you have a valid passport. 
    Joanna M (May 2016) 
    Hello, Are passport requirements to travel to Bermuda the same as the newly changed USA rules? That is, a biometric passport is needed or are non-biometric ones OK for Bermuda? We are travelling from the UK. Thank you for your help. 
    Raj (, May 2016) 
    Hi, Bermuda's Immigration Department hasn't made any communication on such requirement of biometric passport. Non-biometric ones are okay. However you may like to re-confirm this with your nearest British Embassy. 
    Jermaine Bayot (April 2016) 
    Hi Raj, I am a Filipino Citizen with a permanent visa in Norway. My Wife and daughter are Norwehian so i believe they dont need a visa. We plan to travel to Bermuda. Do i just need to apply for a UK Visa? Thanks and God Bless. 
    Raj (, April 2016) 
    Hi, yes you need multi entry UK transit visa. 
    Beril Kaval (March 2016) 
    I have a question regarding visa requirements for Bermuda and would appreciate your help. I am a Turkish passport holder and living and working in Switzerland. My company has operations in Bermuda and I would need to visit Bermuda for business purposes which is planned for May 2016. Please note that my visit would be around 7-10 days and not longer. I have U.S. Visa with multiple-entry until 2023. Would appreciate if you could inform me whether my U.S. Visa would be sufficient for entering Bermuda? Many thanks. 
    Raj (, March 2016) 
    Hi, a multiple entry US visa (with valid passport) is enough for tourists to enter Bermuda. But visitors coming on work or business (short or long term) also require a work permit. Bermuda based company inviting you needs to apply for this work permit (which may be a short term or periodic permit) and the permit is issued by Bermuda Immigration Department. 
    Stanton (February 2016) 
    I am a South African in negotiations with a prospective employer / company based in Bermuda. Part of my job responsibilities would be to travel to the US for business reason. Is the MRV the visa to get or is a work/business visa required. 
    Raj (, February 2016) 
    Hi, Bermuda immigration department does not issue any work visa, instead a work permit is issued to the employer who in turn will send you a copy or the original. This along with MRV (Multi Re-entry transit Visa) should be okay to travel between Bermuda and the country (US, UK or Canada) for which you have the MRV. However, check out any further documentation requirements directly from your employer. 
    Chris Tulip (January 2016) 
    Hi, I plan to travel to Bermuda in June 2016. My US passport expires in October 2016. I know some countries will not allow passports that expire within a year of the planned travel. What are Bermuda's requirements? Thanks 
    Raj (, January 2016) 
    US Nationals can visit Bermuda as long as their passport remains valid until the date of departure from Bermuda. There is 45-days minimum validity requirement for countries other than US, UK and Canada. So you are good to go. 
    Camilla Woods (December 2015) 
    Hi Raj, It sounds like you may have answered my question in previous comments, but I just want to make 100% sure. I am a South African crew member on a private, foreign flagged sailing vessel and we are heading to Bermuda around the end of March next year. I have a 10 year US multi-entry visa, as well as a Canadian multi -entry visa. Will either of these suffice for travel to Bermuda? We will be sailing on to Europe from there. Thanks so much. Look forward to hearing from you. 
    Raj (, December 2015) 
    Hi, Your visas are okay if your are visiting from either US or Canada and returning there. Otherwise you need visa for the country you are sailing in from and also for the country you are sailing out to. 
    Chenchen (October 2015) 
    Hi, how are you? I am the citizen of P.R. of China, but I have the valid working visa for the United States. I really want to go to Bermuda on Thanksgiving Day, which is November 26, however, my working visa expires on December 17, so I wanna know whether I can go to Bermuda with my U.S. working visa? I just notice that there is a minimum 45 days requirement for the visa, so I don't know whether it is mandatory or not. Thank you very much. 
    Raj (, October 2015) 
    US Visa (multi entry) should be valid for minimum 45 days from the date of departure from Bermuda. 
    Brandi Joffrion (Octobert 2015) 
    Hi, I am flying to Bermuda in early November from Boston, then leaving for New Orleans late January. I know I can't come into the country on a one-way ticket, but if I bought a one-way ticket to Bermuda from Boston now, and then prior to entering the country in November, I bought another one-way ticket to New Orleans, would this proof be satisfactory for customs? Or should I simply book both flights now? Thanks. 
    Raj (, October 2015) 
    You should have both inward and outward tickets when you land in Bermuda and clear the immigration. It doesn't matter when you buy them.... together or one after the other. 
    Melanie (September 2015) 
    Good day! I am a Filipino citizen living in the Philippines. I would like to know if I am required to present MRV multi-re entry visa to Bermuda? I have applied a visa to Bermuda but my application considered as withdrawn because I no longer need a visa for entry to Bermuda. My question is do I have to fly with roundrip ticket to Bermuda without any visa? If no what type of visa should I apply for or is it TRANSIT VISA? 
    Raj (, September 2015) 
    You will need MRV which is a multi re-entry transit visa for US or UK (your pass through country) along with passport valid for at least 45 days from date of departure from Bermuda, and round trip tickets. 
    Alice (September 2015) 
    Hello, we are taking cruise on Norwegian Breakaway ship from September 20 to September 27 2015. We are us citizens. However, our 15 years old son's passport will expire on october 12 this year. Can he enter and exit Bermuda with this passport which will cover the cruise week? Thanks a lot for your help. 
    Raj (, September 2015) 
    Hi,  nationals of US, UK and Canada can travel to Bermuda as long as they have a valid passport (unexpired). A minimum 45 days validity period of passport is applicable for citizens of other countries. So your son can travel. 
    Maribel Magnaye (August 2015) 
    Hi, I am Philippines citizen and having working permit here in Canada, I'm currently working here, and I have US visa. I just want to know if I am valid to get there for vacation? Thank you 
    Raj (, August 2015) 
    Yes, you can visit Bermuda, however note there are several conditions to be met like minimum 45 days validity of passport, return tickets, multiple entry US or Canada visa etc. 
    Marti-Mari (May 2015) 
    Dear Raj, There seems to be a lot of confusion in South Africa about visa's required to visit Bermuda from Visa application centres. Myself, my husband and our 10 month old are SA citizens and planning to visit friends in Canada and Bermuda in August. We all have valid passports and are applying for multi entry Canadian visas. If I understand correctly, we therefore don't need a UK visa to enter Bermuda. We have return tickets, valid passports and Multi visas. Please advise if my understanding is correct. Thank you very much. Kind regards. 
    Raj (, May 2015) 
    Hi, if you have multi entry Canada visa and flying into Bermuda directly from Canada, then you won't need any UK visa, provided you return to Canada. 
    IRC (May 2015) 
    Hi Raj, I'm going to Bermuda by cruise this summer and I have some questions. I'm a Chinese citizen and I'm studying in US now, my F1 student visa has expired already, but my student status (which allows me to legally stay in US) is good until 2017. In this case, I can travel to US adjacent islands (including Bermuda) for less than 30 days and re-entering US without renewing my US visa, because my visa will be automatically re-validated when I'm back to US. I have already consulted US Customs and Border Protection to make sure I can get back to US after this trip. My question is, do I need additional visa to enter Bermuda in this case? Or should I get a Canada or UK visa to go to Bermuda by cruise? Thanks a lot!

    Hi, Bermuda Customs/Immigration personnel may not understand automatic revalidation law of US and you may get haggled. Either you should take a written authorization from the US customs about your re-entry permit to the US, or get a multi entry US transit visa. Canada or UK transit visa will not work if you make a round trip from the US. There is no requirement of any Bermuda entry visa.

    Hi there, I have an enquiry with regards to visas. I see on your site that South Africans no longer require visas to enter Bermuda. We have just received our travel documents from Royal Caribbean and they indicate that we might have to apply for a VISA waiver onboard the ship at a cost of USD 25 per person. Is this in fact true ? We have multiple entry visas for the USA valid for ten years. We are cruising next week. Thanks.

    Hi, nobody requires a separate tourist entry visa for Bermuda nowadays. Concept of visa waiver therefore does not exist. It used to be there once. You already have the multi entry visa for US which you require. So talk to the cruise line and figure out which visa waiver they are talking about.

    Hi there, i would really appreciate your advice please. I have been asked by an American couple to film their wedding in Bermuda on the 3rd October and i wondered if I need a work visa to do this? I am a UK citizen. many tanks for your help.

    Hi, According to the current work permit policy, a photographer or a journalist does not require an approval or work permit provided that, 1) work does not last for more than 7 days, 2) they are employed abroad by the private party or group, in this case the American couple, 3) the service does not get extended to Bermuda based clients, and 4) it's a one off case. So if your case satisfies all the above, you do not need a wok permit.

    Hi Raj! My fiancé and I are planning to visit Bermuda this spring/summer. I am a U.S. Citizen, but my Fiancé is Indonesian. On your visa information page, Countries that required Bermuda visa prior to March 2014... Indonesia was not listed. Is she required to get a separate Bermuda visa along with a multiple re-entry transit visa? Thanks!

    Hi, Nobody requires a separate Bermuda visa these days. She will require a multi-entry transit visa, return tickets and a passport valid for a minimum of 45 days from the date of return from Bermuda.

    My son (Canadian citizen) will be traveling to Bermuda in April for one week - has a return ticket. His passport expires in May. Are we required to renew his passport prior to his trip or is it acceptable for him to travel to Bermuda with his current passport, which expires in May? Thank you in advance for your help! 
    Raj (, March 2015) 
    Present Bermuda visa policy doesn't require any minimum passport validity period for citizens of Canada, UK and US. So he is okay to travel.

    Hello Sir, I am a Nigerian living and working in South Africa at the moment holding a Nigerian passport, am willing to come to Bermuda as a tourist in months to come. Pls I will love to ask if I will be needing a separate Bermuda visa with a UK transit visa as well before am allowed to come into Bermuda? Or I apply for only transit visa. Please I will like you to get back to me with the new visa  update.Best regards, Yours Faithfully

    Hi, you need to have a multi-entry UK transit visa, and a passport which should be valid for at least 45 days beyond your intended departure from Bermuda, and of course return tickets. There is no separate entry visa required for Bermuda. You can apply for UK transit visa at the nearest British Embassy or their agents.

    Hi Raj, I am a US Citizen and we currently have a French Au Pair living with us - she has a valid student visa to work/live in the US for one year (and can be extended for an additional year). We have plane tickets booked for 
    Bermuda in April, so my question is, does she need a visa to enter Bermuda, or will her French passport suffice? Thank You! 
    Raj (, February 2015) 
    Hi, visitors no longer require any separate entry visa for Bermuda. Assuming she has multiple entry US visa and a passport valid for at least 45 days from the date of intended departure from Bermuda, that should be good.

    First and foremost, I have to thank you for creating such a good communication forum to answer questions about visits to Bermuda. A friend from Haiti wanted to pay visit to an expatriate friend working and living in Bermuda with three years full time work permit, what is it that she should do in order to enter Bermuda as Haitian? The visit will be only for two weeks. 
    Raj (, February 2015) 
    Like any other tourist, she should get a multi re-entry transit visa for the US (assuming she is coming through US), have return air tickets and ensure that her passport is valid for a minimum of 45 days from the date of her departure from Bermuda.

    Hello, I am a Canadian citizen with a valid Canadian passport. I am traveling to Bermuda in March 2015. My passport expires in August 2015. Would I have problems entering Bermuda? Should I renew my passport before I visit? Thank you for your help. It is greatly appreciated. sincerely, 
    Raj (, January 2015) 
    Hi, No need to renew your passport as long as it remains valid until you return. A minimum validity of 45 days from date of travel applies to countries other than Canada, UK and US.
