Another Change In Bahamas Fees

It seems that the Bahamas government has decide to change the size requirements for the entry fees again. They had changed them once, set them back, and now have changed them again. The new size for the $300.00 fee now begins at 30 feet or larger. Chuck

When we went in May, this was also the case. 30ft and longer paid $300.00.

yep, and then they said never mind and even offered to refund those that paid, and then they changed it back again. Chuck

Note - I believe that also excludes you from the U.S. customs decal.

Re: Another Change In Bahamas Fees

What is a good site to use to check entry fees for various countries?

Is there a single site, or do you check with every country individually?

Thanks!
