A passport is required of all travelers entering Bermuda, and that passport must be valid a minimum of 45 days from the date of your arrival. Any traveler staying in Bermuda longer than three weeks must apply to the Chief Immigration Officer in person at the Government Administration Building, 30 Parliament St., Hamilton (www.immigration.gov.bm; tel. 441/295-5151). You will be asked to fill out an immigration application for an extended stay, which must be approved by authorities.


Visitors may bring into Bermuda duty-free apparel and articles for their personal use, including sports equipment, cameras, 200 cigarettes, 1 liter of liquor, and 1 liter of wine. Certain foodstuffs may be subject to duties. All imports may be inspected on arrival. Visitors entering Bermuda may also claim a duty-free gift allowance.

Persons who are taking prescription medication must inform Bermuda customs officials at the point of entry. Medicines must be in labeled containers. Travelers should carry a copy of the written prescription and a letter from the physician or pharmacist confirming the reason the medicine is prescribed.

When you're leaving Bermuda (if you're flying back to the U.S.), a customs inspector will ask to see a copy of the incoming Bermuda form that was stamped and given to you as you cleared Bermuda Customs. Make sure that you hold onto it and can produce it on short notice.
