We are chartering with Horizon out of Nanny Cay and thinking of running over to St. John for a few days. I have CBP Roam, and hoping the boat has the right sticker, but curious what the re-entry charges are coming back to BVI, would probably clear in at Great Harbor.
Not being lazy, I searched it but what people report for fees seem to be all over the place.
Thanks

After clearing in to BVIs from USVI many times, I'm pretty sure the fees are calculated by multiplying the number of days until the next full moon by the number of passengers in the last boat to clear in, then adding the number of posts on the last Boatyball thread on TTOL.

Usually not bad.... unless you invoke an "overtime fee". Do not enter BVI waters until C&I opens.

$1 per foot harbor fee plus service fees. The harbor fee is relatively new.

Why did you pay the environment tax. Had you not already paid when you checked out to St. John?

Let me get this straight. You are on a BVI registered charter boat and go to the USVI and got charged the harbor fee and environmental fee? The environmental fee is supposed to be on original entry.

They checked out of the BVI so coming back in is a new entry.

Pre Irma they did not have a harbor fee and customarily environmental tax not triggered again. I believe on a big poster at EIS, this is also stated not to be paid twice.

Exactly. We have never been asked to pay again.

It's worth asking the BVI charter company for an itemized list of fees paid. I know we've always been given one, so perhaps it's worth KNOWING where that paperwork is located when leaving the charter dock.

Given that BVI customs offices notoriously require cash payment, one can just imagine how darned difficult it is to account for every 20 $ bill.

Dave, which boat out of Horizon? We’ve got a cat there registered for CBP Roam with DTOPS and a Foreign Fishing Vessel License.

Not true - I've used credit cards for years.

Yes it’s very clear, it would be a good idea to keep a picture of the law so others don’t get stuck paying twice like Sunshine 44

46' Bavaria Mono, Hakuna Matata III. I called Horizon and was told it had DTOPS as well. Hoping so bc CBP Roam seems like the way to go.
