Any Canadian cruisers with experience checking into the Bahamas
and staying longer than 3 months? The website (https://www.bahamas.com/faq/entering-exiting-policies
) states that citizens of the U.S. & U.K. can stay up to 8 months on a cruising permit
, but Canadians must obtain a Bahamas
visa for stays exceeding 3 months!?
Please share if you have any insight? Is obtaining the visa difficult? Or after three months can we just sail off shore, return, and pay the $300 fee again?
We plan to sail from Fort Lauderdale
for our first time on our new-to-us boat
in mid-August...we're so excited! :-) Thanks for any advice.
