Our boat is with Moorings, I just got the Moorings travel insurance. Not sure that I really need it, but it was accepted last time.

When you fill out the EHAS form for entry into St. Maarten, I do believe it is now mandatory that you buy $30 of covid insurance. You pay for it when you are submitting approval documentation.

I went on to Squaremouth and put covid coverage as a filter... then pretty much picked the cheapest one...Hoping it is OK... have not gotten much feedback on exactly what the coverage must say... this one says covid covered under trip cancellation and covid is covered under medical.....we don't go until March...
Trawick International is the name...

Stevepoz- have you used it yet, uploaded it? Just curious if anyone has run into an issue with the type of insurance they get.

I saw something on one of the BVI Abroad Facebook page recently posted and saved it. Having not traveled there yet I cannot vouch for it but thought I would share it.
www.auraassistance.com
Apparently they are approved by the Gov of the VI. Price is 9.75 USD a day and seems pretty comprehensive.

While my health insc. covers me globally and for Covid (with lots of phone calls for approval of services for anything major), for 9.75 a day I would think about using this. My thought is that if its approved by the Government and I need medical assistance it may be easier to have that than deal w my heath insc. company.

We are using owner time, so it may be a bit different. The insurance does appear on the invoice ( about $170 per person ). I upload that invoice both as proof of insurance and covid lodging. It may not be a great value, but it seemed easiest and it worked out in December.

We got our travel insurance from Forbes/SquareMouth/Travel Safe. For basic coverage (excluding trip cancellation) is was $118 for two of us for 15 days. It was accepted by BVI

This is the link I used to get a quote:

Did you just upload the 1 page policy info? Was Travel Safe the name of the Insurance Company that you used?

We just used our normal Blue Cross/Shield coverage and it was accepted. They are really just concerned with the medical insurance. If you get sick they want to know that your hospitalization will be paid for and that if their hospital can't handle you, you are covered to be flown elsewhere.
