We came to the BVI in April and though we jumped through tons of hoops it was so worth it.
Can any one give me an update of any changes. We are headed back in October, with 8 fully vacinated adults.

thanks
Bo

Talk is that the BVI government may go to fast covid test (15 min) and if you pass no quarantine . You are free to go.

I would assume they require a full test before you come down but that would make sense, thurston

I hope so because this is the most stressful planning for a vacation i have ever done by far...

The endless line through form filling, nose plunging and the immigration and customs was ..lets just say the Immigration "lady" held me up for about 20 minutes and then pulled my rfesidency status because I had been out of th BVI's for too long! Any body know about the pandemic? As for the ferry you are assigned a seat so you may get lucky or you may be at the back of the tline like us and still be waiting to get out of jail. The crazy part is after fiilling out the portal and dowloading everything you get asked for it all again by a lady who writes it all down...again. I feel bad fot the nice ;lady waiting to greet us after all this and said " Welcome to hte BVI's".

Well we leave next Sunday..13th. I’m still uncertain about the testing. I have us Wednesday appointments at CVS for their “lab Pcr “ test ..not the rapid pcr test. It says they will send results to “my chart” in one to two days. I see this great emphasis on “RT-PCR” test. So I see nothing about RT on their description on cvs site. Obviously it’s a pcr test done at an independent lab. So has anyone used CVS ? What if the results on the my chart from the lab doesn’t include RT ?

Will, I have confirmed that the PCR test from CVS is acceptable, and it seems to be what a lot of people are using. Just as an fyi, if you're arriving in the BVI on Sunday, you can test as early as Tuesday. We will be arriving the day before you, hope everything goes smoothly this weekend!

Thanks a million. I thought about Tuesday but we are booked on last flight out of SJU on Sunday evening. I’ve been left in San Juan on a few occasions, though usually when American was running the larger prop planes and frequently seemed when we were traveling to cancel a flight..I suspect because of lack of passengers.

You have checked another item to worry about off my list. I suspect unless it gets lost, CVS tests will come back pretty quick. With Covid cases disappearing and rapid tests everywhere, I would bet much of the lab tests are for travelers.
