Interesting question.

If you had all the relevent boat boat details and you were leaving next morning, then I think you could do that. The last time I was in the BVI they did not ask to see the boat papers. I just filled out the forms and got the passports stamped.

Do be aware of the visa requirements for non USA passport holders and that the visa waiver program does not apply to private yachts.

Uh... Maybe you should know that this thread has been dormant for 11 years, and pmills42255 in particular has not posted here in 8 years.

With some luck, maybe someone else will be able to answer your question.
Bah -- I saw "2001" and read 2011.

That's what I get for half-assed posting


Sorry for the thread necromancy.

The short answer is no because you probably aren't going to have all the documentation info for your charter vessel with you and I doubt they even have the proper paperwork at the airport, or more importantly wish to spend the time, clearing you out. Your best bet would to contact your charter company and take their suggestions. My assumption is that whomever you charter with won't be far from Roadtown unless you are using Voyage. It would be a short taxi ride from the charter base to Roadtown to clear out.
