I apologize..I've been asking what might seems like redundant questions, but the closer our trip gets ( Oct 24 wave ) the more nervous we get. Just to clarify....we can use the Binax e-med test 48 hours before heading back to the USVI? I've read on the forum...you can use them...then you can't use them.. Ugh. I'm very aware how rapidly thing change there, just want to try to be prepared. It looks like I can order a package of 6 online. What has the recent experience been? Thank you in advance love

The boxes are bulky so it's kind of a pain but be sure you don't open them to save space. Must be sealed when the proctor session begins.

Also they have a temperature range specified on the box so we kept ours in our carryon bags to avoid them sitting on the tarmac somewhere in the July heat.

I shipped 12 kits to the BVI thru Island Bargains so I'm quite certain the were out of the ideal temperature range at some point in travel but they all worked (luckily). Carrying on is definitely a better solution!

If it helps you feel better about it, I do have a confirmation email from the USVI Department of Tourism that states...

"Negative results from at-home COVID-19 tests may be submitted to the USVI Travel Screening Portal (www.usvitravelportal.com) if accompanied by a verifiable lab analysis and/or report from a CLIA-certified facility. A photograph of the test result is not acceptable for entry."


Basically, I think the photograph part means you have to download the PDF report that eMed sends you, you can't just take a picture of the test that indicates 1 pink line (negative).
