COVID-19 Update

Updated: Jun 7

June 2021 : The US Virgin Islands is open for visitors.


As with so much else during the pandemic, things are frequently changing. We have been writing periodic updates about the status of the territory to let visitors know the status of the territory, closing it, re-opening it, status of what businesses are open. We do our best to relay the most recent updates here, but sometimes changes happen quickly. Please refer to the official government links below for more information.


There are some restrictions in place to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus. Effective January 18, 2021 ALL travelers flying into the territory are required to provide a negative Covid-19 test (within 5 days of travel), or a positive anti-body test. More details on this are here. All Visitors must also use the Travel Portal. Currently proof of being fully vaccinated DOES NOT exempt you from providing the required test results.


There are requirements for temperature checks and mask wearing at business establishments. Sanitation stations and hand sanitizer is made readily available and use is encouraged.

Restaurants are open and able to accommodate dine-in service. Bars and bar seating are now permitted with groups spaced apart. Beaches are open but close at 5pm on weekends and holidays. The passenger and car ferries to St John are running on regular schedules. The ferry and seaplane service to St Croix is also running.


Many of our most popular attractions are open, though some may be on a limited basis or by reservation only. It is a good idea to contact us in advance of your arrival to plan activities and book reservations.
