Tourists who plan on visiting the islands must first register at the BVI Gateway portal at least 48 hours prior to departure and receive a Traveller Authorization Certificate. Visitors are also required to present proof of a negative PCR test taken within five days of departure and medical insurance that includes coverage for Covid-19.
Once they’re on the islands, they will be required to take a series of Covid tests that will cost $100. They will also undergo a health screening on arrival and must download a contact tracing app.
Vaccinated travelers will be allowed entry into the British Virgin Islands without the need to undergo a series of tests. However, they still have to show proof of a negative PCR or rapid antigen test taken within five days before arrival. They must also show proof of full vaccination. As for unvaccinated travelers, they will have to quarantine for 7 days upon entry.
