Visa Process for Persons attending UN Symposium
Please be advised that the visa process for persons attending the UN SIDS Symposium is as follows:
a) Holders of Diplomatic and Official passports
No Visa is required for holders of Diplomatic Passports. On an exceptional basis, visas will not be required for persons with Official passports; however, Official Passport holders should have an invitation letter.
b) All Others requiring a visa*
Persons attending the 2017 UN SIDS Symposium should apply for visas at The Bahamas consular offices - http://mofa.gov.bs/about-us/overseas-missions/ or the nearest British High Commission/Embassy
Persons, who are unable to apply at one of the above offices, will receive an entry Visa upon their arrival in Nassau. THIS IS A SPECIAL EXCEPTION FOR THE PARTICIPANTS OF THE SYMPOSIUM.
Persons must present a valid passport, and the letter of invitation. Persons without a letter of invitation should contact the Conference Secretariat immediately so that they may be provided with one.
Participants are responsible for obtaining on their own, any transit visas necessary
