It’s final: Bonaire will partially reopen on July 1!

26 June 2020 by Sunwise Bonaire - Reading time: < 1 minute

Today the final decision to slowly open Bonaire to tourists again, was announced by Governor Rijna. According to Rijna, Bonaire now has sufficient testing and care capacity to cope with a possible outbreak.

After the earlier announcement that from July 1, the Netherlands would relax the travel advice color code for Bonaire, from orange to yellow (‘traveling is possible but watch out, there are risks’), it immediately became clear that Bonaire itself still had to make the final decision.

That final decision came today and, according to Governor Rijna, Bonaire now has sufficient testing and care capacity to deal with a possible outbreak.

A number of conditions have been issued for our guests to travel to Bonaire. For example, the Public Health Department will welcome travelers at Flamingo Airport, to have them fill in a health certificate. It will also be checked whether the tourists have been continuously in the country that is considered a low-risk area, for at least the 14 days before departure. At the time of this writing, the low-risk countries that can be traveled from, are the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Germany.

All measures, conditions and restrictions are until further notice and we will keep our guests here, in this blog and via our newsletter, closely informed of any changes.

Sunwise offers FREE cancellation of the bookings, for guests from the countries listed above, if a lockdown is again announced due to COVID-19 / SARS-CoV-2.

    Just wondering, if low risk countries are France and Germany, why not Canada, which had much less of cases with virus?

    1. Hi Lenka, we are wondering with you about certain decisions that are made in this crisis. But what we see is that Bonaire is extremely cautious, because we don’t have much capacity in our one hospital. Let’s hope the restrictions for our beloved Canadian guests (we have a lot of Canadian guests and homeowner clients!) will disappear very soon!
