Travel with a Bermuda passport

The Passport of Bermuda is a British Passport issued to Bermudian citizens. It is identical to the passports issued in other British Overseas Territories except for minor differences referencing Bermuda.

A British Overseas Territory citizen (earlier a British Dependent territories citizen) holds British nationality by virtue of a connection with a British Overseas Territory.

Bermuda passport holders are able to travel visa-free to the United Kingdom. In general, there are 94 Bermuda passport visa-free countries.

Bermudian citizens can also get a visa on arrival in 33 countries and an electronic visa for 15 destinations.

In order to apply for a passport of Bermuda, a person must be naturalized as a British overseas territory citizen.

Great opportunities for Bermudian citizens with visa-free travel

Visa exemption provides Bermudians with excellent travel opportunities. Firstly, they can see much more places, as they are not bound by visa requirements and can't be entry-denied.

Such trips become cheaper, and even people with a not high income can afford to go on vacation in another country and explore new locations.

As people who travel visa-free don't have to experience application hassle, they are not stressed, are more open to communication and cheerful. It allows to make travel mates along the way and get to know locals better.

How to get a Bermudian status 

A person can apply for Bermudian status if:

  • they possess a Qualifying Bermudian Connection;  
  • they are a spouse, widow, or widower of a Bermudian;
  • they have the right to Bermudian status in certain other cases.

Any person who is not a Commonwealth citizen must be naturalized as a British Overseas Territories Citizen in order to get Bermudian status. Acquisition of Bermudian status does not mean British nationality, though.

Following naturalization, a person may apply for a passport. In order to do that, they should present the required original documents and two photographs in support of the passport application. Then an applicant may be interviewed.

Visa-free access makes traveling for Bermudians better

Many people want to have a visa exemption because it makes traveling easier and more exciting:

  • you omit difficulties related to getting a visa - you do not need to go to an office, fill out the form, attach documents, or wait in queues;
  • you don't have to provide your confidential information;
  • applying for a visa costs money, and you won’t need to pay these additional costs;
  • you have the freedom to pack your bags whenever you want and start your trip immediately without waiting for the visa to be approved;
  • you feel more relaxed and are able to enjoy your trip to the full extent.
