Plan to promote island as safe wedding destination
A drive to promote the island as a safe wedding destination is to be launched.
David Burt, the Premier, said that a task force drawn from the ministries of health and national security and the Bermuda Tourism Authority had drawn up a plan which would be announced soon.
Mr Burt said: “We have come to a place where we are on the same page and we are going to move forward with wedding promotion.
“What we find is that travellers who want to come to Bermuda for a wedding most of them are going to get immunised.
“It is likely that our controls at the borders will get stricter for persons who are not immunised while they are relaxed for those who are immunised.”
Mr Burt, speaking at Tuesday’s Covid-19 briefing, added that he was aware of the problems strict Covid-19 regulations had had on the wedding planning sector.
He said: “We have put together a set of proposals. The BTA is happy with those proposals and believe that they will help the wedding industry.
“I look forward to announcing those moving forward. I understand the challenges that wedding organisers and planners are having.”
