Kashrut - Keeping Kosher in Bermuda

Strictly kosher visitors must ask for kosher meals to be specially shipped in for them or they must rent accommodations with a kitchen and bring in their own food.

If you would like to bring in your own Kosher meat/food but it should be declared at Bermuda customs.
