Good news Mal. Do you get to quarantine at CRC? Haven't been following the protocols too closely so not sure what the arrangements are supposed to be by that date.

Not sure what the protocols will be but we are hoping they will oosen up a bit..we are both vaccinated. Next week we'll start planning that..trying to find out exactly what we need to land in STT..anyone?

USVI Portal
The short version is test within 5 days of travel (rapid test allowed) and request approval to enter USVI thru the above portal.

It is incredibly easy compared to the BVI portal. We've done it twice and just submitted again for our transit through on Sunday enroute to EIS. Negative COVID test (can be rapid as Jason mentioned) or positive antibody test required.

Does one need to go thru the USVI entry protocol if connecting thru STT to EIS?

I think so. In PR you can just tell security that you are in-transit and they let you pass but everyone I know that has come thru STT has needed the portal approval.

Jason - Got it. Shouldn't be much trouble and I think you can use the same PCR test results. Thanks.

How do the UVSI & BVI requirements line up together? If I recall correctly, the BVI requires a test within 72 hours of departure. Meeting that requirement would also satisfy the USVI requirement, but if, as Malcolm & Candace are doing, you stay two nights on St. Thomas, would that re-start the BVI's 72-hour countdown and require getting tested again on St. Thomas, or could you just transit onward to Tortola without another test?

Both the USVI and BVI require a test within 5 days of arrival. In Malcom's case, his test will need to be taken April 17th or later. The same test would satisfy both requirements.

Tom, you raise a good point. One needs to get the test, receive the results, work through the portal for your destination, get there, and still have enough time remaining to get through the portal and arrive at the next destination.

More than one person has nearly been on their way to the airport before getting BVI clearance. In fact we have a neighbor who got stuck in San Juan when the BVI messed up her clearance. In Mal's scenario, I would want back-up plans for testing on St. Thomas.
