Entry into the
U.S. virgin Islands

Easy as 1-2-3 (updated January 26, 2021)

If you are an American, you DO NOT need a passport to visit any of the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Water Island) but you MUST show up to the airport with a negative Covid test - even IF you have been vaccinated.

Step 1

Schedule your Covid test to be taken 5 days before departure (see graphic). CVS, Walgreens among others allow you to schedule your appointment online months in advance
and take the test via a drive-thru window.

Step 2

CVS, Walgreens and others will email you a pdf test result;
be sure to print AND download the pdf because in step 3 you will be asked to upload it to the USVI portal.


Step 3 

You MUST Go to this U.S. Virgin Islands Travel Screening Link and Fill out the Form, 
be sure to print out and have accessible to show upon landing.

PRINIT OUT BOTH the response from the USVI portal, including the QRcode AND the negative test result. Alternatively you could show the results on your mobile device as well.

You will need to show this paperwork to both board the plane AND upon landing in St Thomas.


NOTE: you do NOT need a Covid test when returning home unless your state requires it - the USVI is not considered a Non US entry so a negative Covid test to go back home is NOT required.
