284 Media did an interview yesterday with Premier Fahie. He was asked whether the 2 week quarantine and $3500 guard fee presently charged to ex-pat workers, villa owners, etc would be reduced now that a 4 day quarantine with bracelet is scheduled to roll out Dec 1st. He answered that they would be reviewing that and seeing whether the difference in requirements could be narrowed. I got the impression from his comments that news on this might come out next week.

For those interested go here and then advance to minute 20: https://www.284media.com/videos/premier-addresses-issues-in-the-territory/
At minute 18 there is his answer to the question of how the booking process would work (which is also to be reviewed and likely refined)

I am a bit confused which is my natural state. A 4 day quarantine means no tourists. Is that the released policy or is it still simply a rumor?

They're still working on the plan. Holding consultations through Oct. 22, then putting something together, taking it to the cabinet and governor. You will have the plan in plenty of time to book your ticket five days before you fly, after you register your Covid results with IATA. Isn't that how we all do it?

Sorry, the 4 day quarantine is part of a draft plan for tourist beginning Dec 1st. It is subject to change and nothing yet is final.

I notice you said tourist not tourists. With a 4 day quarantine I am not sure they will get that tourist to come but I guess they can hope.

Here is my story. I arrived in the BVI in Feb to continue the rebuild of my villa. Covid came and the bVI shut down. Lucky for me most of my workers lived on my land so we continued to work every day though the police came and said we needed to stop work. I said no way the workers are staying at the villa and not mingling so covid free. In any event I had to have food brought in as no one was allowed outside of the villa. Since I own quite a bit of land I took it on myself to check out the other villas. The quarantine and lockdown continued for at least 1 month, then we were allowed an hour or so to go shopping.. This continued and the curfew went up and down. In April I had pains in my chest and left arm so went down to the clinic. They did 2 EKg's and 2 blood tests over the course of several hours with a $500 charge.. Eventually a doctor told me he could find nothing. However recently I had a complete workup done in Florida and they told me I had had a heart attack although they did not know when. Eventually I decided I had to leave as my mental state was going downhill and I had completed my task to complete the villa. The workers eventually left back to Trinidad staying at the villa for over 1 month after I left. Getting home was not easy and I finally became Captain of a yacht and motored over to STT, left it and took AA home the next day arriving home May 15 through Miami. Airport was empty. My car had been parked at an airport parking lot from Feb.. By the way USVI immigration was not very helpful and just old me my paperwork was not correct. I told them I had no idea how to fill out the paperwork so finally a young officer helped me fill it out. BVI customs was fine in West End.
So now I would like to go back to my villa but am finding out it will not be easy and quote expensive. So have no idea when I can go back.I have millions invested in the BVI and actually had plans to expand but not with the current administration.. So that is my story.

Gosh, that is a sad story tpcook.
Sad that the medical folks on island didn’t diagnose the heart attack.
Sad that there is such disregard for private investors. But my understanding is that is common in so much of the world. Thank goodness for the US Constitution!

Glad that you are recovering health wise, and hope that the financial setback will be temporary!

Thorsten - I am so sorry - I have followed all of your hard work post-Irma...

I think there will be a return to the BVI but it will likely not be as soon as we were all hoping...
