Bahamas-EU "Short Stay Visa Waiver" - REMINDER
- Czech Republic
Additionally, Bahamians may travel without a visa to the United Kingdom, Ireland and Switzerland for short stays.
The agreement does not yet apply to Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, as while they are members of the Schengen area they are not EU members.
For the purposes of the Agreement, short stays are considered as visits for the following purposes:
- Business travel, e.g. conferences, meetings etc. [but not paid employment]
- Ad hoc sports activities, artists' activities
- Journalism [media professionals sent by media organizations in The Bahamas]
- Intra-corporate training e.g. persons sent for training at European headquarters or branches of companies and organizations with branches in The Bahamas
