PORTS OF ENTRY

In Spring 2018, Bahamas Customs replaced an outdated online list of official ports of entry where visiting boaters can clear customs, immigration and buy a cruising permit.  The list changes with some regularity, so it is always best to confirm with your destination marina on the availability and hours of the local Customs & Immigration operation.
