Tips to Know about Bermuda
Before embarking on your island getaway, make sure to pack the required documents:
A round-trip ticket to Bermuda
A return or onward ticket, i.e., a round-trip ticket, or other proof of onward transportation to a country to which the passenger has right of entry is required of all visitors
A valid, machine-readable passport
All travellers must carry with them proof of citizenship and identification, specifically a passport, for return to their own country or for re-entry through another foreign country as required by Bermuda Immigration authorities. This applies to adults as well as children/infants travelling alone or with their parents.
As of March 1, 2014 Bermuda entry visas and visa waivers will no longer be required for tourist and business visitors and work permit holders. Click here for more information.
Legal tender in Bermuda is the Bermuda dollar, which trades at the same rate as the US dollar and carries the same symbol ($). Bermuda and US currencies are accepted interchangeably, but change is almost always given in Bermudian currency. Please note that Bermudian currency cannot be exchanged by international banks outside of Bermuda. Please be aware of this when taking money out of ATM’s as they only offer funds in Bermuda dollars. If possible, ask the cashiers or clerks for USD when receiving change. Travellers cheques are no longer accepted on island. All major credit cards are accepted island wide.
The electrical current in Bermuda is 110 volts, 60Hz AC, which is the same voltage supported by the US and Canada. Travellers from the UK and Europe will need to use an adapter since two-pronged plugs are in use island-wide.
