Bahamian visa is a form of permission or a pass for a non-citizen to enter, transit or remain in Bahamas. Bahamian
visa is a stamp or form placed in your passport when you enter, and sometimes when you leave Bahamas.
A visa in your passport does not guarantee entry. That remains the right of the immigration officials in Bahamas.
Please note: In individual cases, you may be required to provide additional documents. Embassy rules and regulations can and do, very occationally change overnight.
We accept no responsibilty for any such changes. Also, we regret that we cannot, under any circumstances, intercede or take responsibilty for any transaction initiated directly between an applicant and the embassy.
