Entry Requirements

For Visitors
Currently, United States citizens do not require a visa to enter Bermuda if their visit is for tourism.  U.S. citizens are required to present a valid U.S. passport for entry into Bermuda and re-entry into the U.S.  In other words, U.S. citizens must have a U.S. passport valid for the duration of their travel to Bermuda.

If you are coming to work in Bermuda, you will require a work permit, which must be secured before arrival in Bermuda.  Failure to comply with this requirement may result in refusal of entry into the country.  The responsibility for securing work permits rests with the prospective employer.
