BVI to USVI Customs question

4062 Views 12 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Hesper
Hey all,

In Dec. a group of friends and I will be chartering down in the BVI. This will be my 7th time sailing in the BVI and I wanted to try St. Johns out for the first time. We are starting out of Road Town on a 10 day trip. So I'm thinking maybe a couple days exploring St. Johns would be new and fun. My question is what are the procedures and costs for checking in and out. Do you think it is worth it? We are all U.S. citizen's and would of course head back and finish the trip in the BVI. Any input would be appreciated.

Last time I checked in to the US at Cruz Bay from the BVI, everyone on board had to present themselves at US customs before the boat was cleared in. May have changed, I don't know......???? Re outbound clearance, it's typically not done from US waters, so when you're ready to leave -- go and then check in in the BVI.

All that said, it's definitely worth checking w/ your charter company on the latest requirements.....

Have fun. St John is definetly worth visiting. Maho Bay is very nice and don't miss the bays on the south side of the island.
