BDA - Boarding & Deplaning Options
Bermuda has no jetbridges. All boarding and deplaning in Bermuda is done via the aircraft ramp. You will board and deplane on the aircraft ramp, then walk to or from the terminal in all weather. A boarding bridge will be used for cover in rainy weather. Bermuda does not participate in boarding or deplaning from the back of the aircraft.

BDA - Traveling to Bermuda with Animals

Cats and dogs are required to have an import permit issued in advance by the Department of Environmental Protection to be brought into Bermuda.

The main provisions required for an import permit as it applies to dogs and cats include, but are not limited to:

  • A veterinary health certificate issued within 10 days before your arrival in Bermuda
  • The animal has been implanted with a microchip that may be read by a standard microchip reader, i.e. ISO, FECAVA, European/International, or AVID-USA chip
  • A veterinary statement that the animal has been treated on the day of examination with an acaricidal preparation
  • A veterinary statement that, as best as can be ascertained by your knowledge and through questioning, the animal has not been exposed to rabies nor been present in an officially quarantined rabies area within the last 6 months

Import permits must be acquired in advance. For more information on how to obtain a permit, click here, send an email to or call 441-236-4201.

Animals arriving without proper documentation are immediately returned to country of origin or are destroyed, at the owner's expense.
