Read the latest travel notes while traveling to the British Virgin Islands.
Our travel dates were March 8th through the 18th using American Airlines for the domestic flights and Cape Air for the short International transfers to Tortola.
Travel insurance with medical coverage is mandatory for B.V.I. visitor entry. We opted to use Travel Guards All Season Travel Plan: Beach.Decide which PCR testing service you are going to use well ahead of your departure. On recommendation, we used Pixel by LabCorp. It is an in-home self-collected test that uses FedEx for delivery and collection. The service worked flawlessly for us, as I know it has for some of our other VOYAGE charters guests. Each person must order their own test kit and register it before returning.
Keep up to date on any changes in travel restrictions for your destination and places you will pass through enroute. For us, traveling through St Thomas meant we needed to complete the USVI entry on their portal and obtain clearance. Yes, this was required even if just connecting straight to your B.V.I. flight. The process is quite easy to complete but make sure you have a copy of your negative PCR test result and entry approval email, you need to show this to board your USVI flight.
