Airport and Airlines
When traveling to Atlantis confirm your flights into Nassau International Airport. The airport code is NAS. Most major airlines offer international service with either non-stop or connecting service into NAS.
Both US and Bahamas Immigration Laws require all travelers to have a valid passport. Passports must be valid for six months after your travel dates.
As you will be traveling to another country, you must present proof of citizenship. All guests full, legal names and children’s ages are required at time of booking. Possession of proper documentation is the responsibility of the passenger. Each passenger must have a valid passport, visa and/or proof of citizenship. Failure to provide the air carrier or governmental officials with necessary documents will lead to denial of boarding, in which case there shall be no obligation to board the affected passenger or to provide any alternate transportation. The passenger’s failure to provide such documentation may result in automatic flight cancellation without right to a refund.
Starting January 23, 2007 all travelers including U.S. citizens, to and from the Caribbean, Bermuda, Panama, Mexico and Canada must have a passport to enter or re-enter the United States. This is a change from prior travel requirements and will affect all United States citizens entering the United States from countries within the Western Hemisphere who do not currently possess valid passports. This new requirement will also affect certain foreign nationals who currently are not required to present a passport to travel to the United States. Most Canadian citizens, citizens of the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda, and to a lesser degree, Mexican citizens will be affected by the implementation of this requirement.
Travel Insurance coverage is available through Trip Mate Insurance Agency Inc. This is only available to US citizens as well as legal residents. It provides valuable insurance protection including trip cancellation, interruption or delay. Some of the other features include, lost, damaged or delayed baggage cost, medical expenses in case of an accident or sickness, emergency medical evacuation, worldwide travelers assistance service and accidental death. Insurance is highly recommended.
Take the following steps to make the most of your credit card(s) while traveling to the Bahamas.
* Notify all of your issuing banks (ATM and Credit Card) you’ll be traveling to the Bahamas and the dates you’ll be traveling on before you leave to ensure access to your funds.
* Check with your issuing banks to see whether your ATM or Credit Card is subject to daily spending or withdraw restrictions while abroad.
* Be sure to know your PIN for your debit or credit cards so you can get local currency from ATMs worldwide.
Call your mobile phone carrier to inquire about your international options for calls, texting and data usage. Many carriers offer short term international plans. You can also rent a Batelco serviced cell phone upon arrival at Atlantis Business Center.
There will be WiFi available for meeting attendees; you may want to consider using Facetime, Skype or messaging apps to communicate with family and colleagues at home.
