Caribbean Destinations That Dropped Pre-Arrival Testing

Read Time:52 Seconds

March 11. The new rules, which went into effect this week, dropped pre-arrival testing for vaccinated domestic travelers, according to the U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism. The decision put the island more in line with other U.S. states and territories that have recently dropped pandemic-era restrictions.

Previously, all travelers were required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of their arrival, regardless of their vaccination status. Unvaccinated domestic passengers will still have to show proof of a negative PCR or antigen test taken within five days of travel.

American travelers returning home after visiting the U.S. Virgin Islands are exempt from the testing requirement, because the U.S. Virgin Islands is an American territory.

All travelers will have to utilize the USVI Travel Screening Portal and get cleared to travel to the island, regardless of vaccination status. The screening portal form must be filled out for domestic travelers age 5 and older and international travelers age 2 and older.
