(Nassau, Bahamas) - In recent weeks a number of queries have been lodged with the Department regarding length of stay for Canadian, American and British nationals in The Bahamas. 

* All bona fide visitors (nationals) from the United States, Canada and United Kingdom are landed at all ports for thirty (30) days. 

*Visitors from the aforementioned countries are allowed to remain in The Bahamas for a period up to eight (8) months.
