NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Wednesday issued an advisory to Bahamians travelling during the holiday season, warning that Bahamian travel documents are amongst the most highly sought-after documents in the world.
“During the upcoming holiday season, many Bahamians will travel to various parts of the world for any variety of reasons. This is a time of joy and happiness to visit family, friends and loved ones or simply to have an enjoyable vacation.

The Ministry also reminded all members of the traveling public to exercise proper care and precaution during their holiday travel, especially to safeguard money, valuables and travel documents.
“Should any person experience an unfortunate incident, please contact the nearest Bahamian overseas office immediately,” the Ministry advised.
