USVI COVID-19 Travel Policy

Effective July 15, 2020 and continuing as long as the territory remains in a State of Emergency as declared on March 13, 2020, the Government of the USVI will require either a negative antigen COVID-19 test result receive within five days prior to travel or a positive antibody COVID-19 test result taken within four months prior to travel from any state with a positivity rate of greater than 10 percent (according to data from John Hopkins University). Currently, those states include Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Nevada, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, and Texas. This list may be periodically updated based on data obtained from John Hopkins University and will be posted on https://www.usviupdate.com.  This policy applies to visitors and USVI residents returning to the territory from these states. This requirement applies to passengers aged 15 and older.


Travelers unable to produce the required test result will be subject to a mandatory self-quarantine for 14 days or until the required test result is received while on the island. The restriction does not apply to travelers transiting these states to the U.S. Virgin Islands but applies to passengers who have spent more than seven days in and are traveling from the impacted states. For more information, call our USVI Department of Tourism's Travel Hotline at (800)-372-8784.
