New Bonaire travel restrictions announced.
As of March 15, 2020, there were still no known or suspected cases of COVID-19 on Bonaire. In an effort to minimize the island’s exposure to the virus, the island government has been systematically announcing Bonaire travel restrictions for flights and cruise ships.
European flights and cruise ships temporarily suspended.
Last Friday, the island government announced that all flights from Europe would be immediately and temporarily suspended until the end of the month. Additionally, no cruise ships would be allowed into the Port of Kralendijk for 30 days.
Flights from the USA, Canada, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic now have been suspended as well.
Announced today, and effective immediately, all flights from North America, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic also have been suspended from operations. Flights that are already in the air in route to Bonaire at the time of the travel ban will be allowed to land, but arriving passengers will be interviewed and their place of accommodations registered. This restriction will be in effect through March 27, 2020, but can be extended.
