OK, I know this has been posted before, but not recently, and we have had some "newbies" posting, so here goes: the Customs and Immigration forms that you are issued on the ferry/airplane to the BVI requires a dark colored/black ink pen. No green, red, pink, etc...black only, or you will be regulated to the end of the C&I line to redo you C&I form in black ink. Sad to say that I, a concerned and caring guy, almost laughed out loud at the poor person relegated to the end of the line for using a pink ink pen for the C&I paper's. Then I remembered the time I used a blue pen... <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/duh.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/jester.gif" alt="" /> <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Yikes.gif" alt="" />

We always use blue & have been in & out of C&I on BVI & US sides at least 10 times this season.
I would hope that any adult would know that pink, green, purple... Whatever... Are not acceptable colors for any official document.


If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a horrible warning. [Linked Image]

I used a blue pen once about 15 years ago and had to redo the form. I guess blue is ok now. Good news. But it is a black ink pen in my shirt pocket anyway...lol.
