Kathy, also don't forget to package 2 of the test kits, in your carry-on luggage, for testing to return to the USA. Abbott Labs says if you pack in your checked luggage that the temperatures in the cargo hold will/can damage the tests .
Hi Carol! I value your opinion so thanks for posting this. I have been considering Medwork because of the ability to have an appointment. For Saturday travel and the $70 test, should we go on Thursday?
Thank you, thank you. I’ve been craving a trip report for ages so this was perfect. Lovely to spend special times in special places and with special family. Glad it all turned out well, particularly your night at BSV - it really is a little piece of heaven here on earth.
I was flying via Atlanta to get back to Toronto so the Delta agent in SJU wanted to see my arrivecan portal info as did the Delta agent in Atlanta - make sure you have that on your phone - cheers Brian
We were there the year before Irma hit. That event made me sad. I thought maybe something good could come from this tragedy and maybe that something good would happen, like Boatyball would be forever gone. I see that didn't happen. What a shame.
What a nice sentiment to wish someone ill will. Congrats to yourself (yes, that's sarcasm).
We’ve booked through the Globe Sailor, and they broker charters all over the world, but have several in the Seychelles. We are booked for November this year and the pricing was quite reasonable, I thought, particularly compared to the BVI. Now, your flight cost will make up that difference but we are really looking forward to experiencing new islands on a large cat.
Carol: That's why I deliberately said "most" nations!! My reply was primarily in response to your comment about "I don't know if they can tell where it is ordered FROM...". Most Americans have little to no experience with this, so thought it might be informative to have an "outsider's" experience. Obviously, if officials are corrupt or look the other way, or people are prepared to break the law (e.g. smuggling), tax controls will not work. That's no different than anywhere else in the world. But that is more of a political, than a program discussion, so I wasn't going to go there.
There are private boats entering now. There were at least 50 or 60 boats from PR in the BVI for xmas in July. I don't think charter boats, but private boats can arrange to enter. The govt. orders link in the other post are from 2020.
Someone recently posted the instructions to enter on a private vessel. I will see if I can find them.
