I will be traveling to St John in August. What are the travel requirements traveling into the USVI as well as out of? I am thinking of leaving St John a day before my scheduled flight out of STT. If a negative covid test is required will one for St. John be enough to get me into St.Thomas and then on to San Juan a day later? We have vaccine cards to I am hoping this is all we need to move about

You need a test in order to enter the USVI (St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Water Island, etc.). You do not need a test to move around within the USVI (i.e., from St. John to St. Thomas) and you do not need a test to return to the mainland U.S. (unless your home state has a requirement I am not aware of). In order to enter the USVI you must "apply" through their online portal - go to https://usviupdate.com/ for more information and a link to the portal.

plans to make vaccinations qualify soon:
governor earlier----
[The government also is in the process of changing the online travel portal requirements, so that USVI residents who have been vaccinated will get the green light to re-enter the territory just by entering their name, said Bryan. Currently, they must provide a positive antibody test, and those age 5 and older who are not vaccinated must upload a negative COVID-19 test result taken within five days of travel.

“We’re almost there, it’s just doing the paperwork” to ensure the change complies with medical privacy laws, said Bryan, adding that the goal is to eventually expand the service to all vaccinated U.S. travelers, not just residents of the territory.]

I would think that will not alter the CDC requirement for those arriving by air. I sure hope they change that soon (as well).

For the San Juan part of your question - unlike USVI, Puerto Rico doesn't require covid test for vaccinated travelers. But you'll need to upload a pic of your vaccine card to the PR travel portal - https://1link.travelsafe.pr.gov/

Do you know if this is required if you are just flying through. Our flight is STT to SJU and the SJU to BOS

You must have a test within 3 days to arrive in any US territory from a foreign country by air. Since you are starting in a US territory you should not need a test if your flights are on one passenger record. If they are separate bookings you will probably need to comply with the Puerto Rico portal requirements.

As long as you aren't leaving the SJU airport, just connecting to another flight, you don't need a covid test or to apply with the Puerto Rico Covid travel portal.

Didn’t want to start a new thread...submitted my info to the portal at 7:30am Friday and the 3 more for family at around 11am. I was hoping to see a response yesterday but I didn’t. I’m assuming nothing is coming today (Sunday). Hopefully are oks come tomorrow. I’m getting nervous!
