WHAT TO EXPECT AT OUR AIRPORTS AND SEAPORTS

While we welcome you to our beautiful islands, we have been forced to make some changes to the way we do business in our air and seaports.  The following are Operational Guidelines issued by the USVI Government for the public's safety.

TEMPERATURE CHECKS AT ALL PASSENGER PORTS

Temperature screenings are mandatory for all travelers arriving in the USVI via U.S. domestic flights or from foreign locations. Temperature checks at the airports will be performed by the Virgin Islands National Guard (VING) at checkpoints on the airport operations access ramp before travelers are allowed entry into the terminal. Thermal temperature scanning machines are also installed at both airport terminals as a secondary temperature check mechanism.

HEALTH FORMS AND NEGATIVE COVID-19 TEST RESULTS ARE REQUIRED 

Upon arrival, you must produce your original test result and travel certification received from the Travel Screening Portal.


Travelers unable to produce the required test result will be subject to mandatory self-quarantine of 14 days from the time of entry into the Territory or the duration of the person’s stay in the Territory, whichever is shorter, or until they are able to receive the required test result while in the Territory.


Every person ordered to self-quarantine shall proceed directly from the airport or seaport to the designated quarantine location per the Virgin Islands Department of Health and shall be responsible for all associated costs, including transportation, lodging, food, and medical care.


For further guidance, please see the latest travel advisory: https://bit.ly/2CChShf We encourage you to stay safe and continue to monitor www.usviupdate.com.


COVER YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE

Masks or facial coverings are mandatory at all USVI airports and seaport terminals.  They must be worn properly covering the entire mouth and nose.
