There are no travel advisories in effect for Nassau. Flights land in Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS), the largest airport in the Bahamas and gateway into the country. It has 30 gates and two runways.
Immigration & Customs
All Immigration forms are usually supplied by the airlines. When entering The Bahamas, visitors must complete and sign an Immigration form. A portion of this card (returned to you by the immigration official clearing you for entrance) is required to exit The Bahamas.
Regarding customs, U.S. citizens out of the country for 48 hours are allowed up to $800 worth of duty-free merchandise. Nassau Paradise Island is one of the few Caribbean destinations that provides pre-clearance for U.S. Customs and Immigration services, allowing flights from Nassau Paradise Island to enter the United States as domestic flights and bypass the normal U.S. Customs and Immigration clearance encountered on most returns from an international destination. Please allow an extra hour for check-in during peak hours.
Getting to Your Hotel
CheapCaribbean.com has partnered with Majestic Tours as our premier transportation company in Nassau. They’ll provide you with safe, comfortable and professional transportation from the airport to your hotel and back. They’ll also provide transportation to any excursions booked through our site that you’d like to take while you’re in your destination.
It’s easy to find your Majestic Tours team when you arrive at the airport. They’ll be standing in the ground transportation waiting area, holding a CheapCaribbean welcome sign. All drivers are fluent in English, friendly and knowledgeable about the culture, history and things to do while you’re there. By the end of your ride, you’ll have made a new friend. Vehicles are all clean, modern and reliable.
Majestic Tours is also the official transportation rep for CheapCaribbean.com excursions when you book vacations to Nassau on our site. The majority of our partner hotels have a Majestic Tours desk in or near the lobby so they’re easy to find, should you need them. For this reason, we suggest that our guests do not rent cars while in the Caribbean or Mexico as traffic laws and road quality and street signs are not the same as they are in the US.
Getting Around Nassau
Making transport arrangements with our tour operator is the safest bet. If you need to grab a taxi, ask your hotel to request one for you. Ferries are also available among the islands.
