Virgin Islands Covid requirements

The Virgin Islands is requesting everyone traveling to the VIs to test 5-days prior to arrival and apply at their screening portal prior to entry to safely enjoy your visit. Please note: CDC guidelines for testing on re-entry into the US do not apply to your trip to St. Croix as it is not an international destination.

The most up to date information can be found on the Virgin Islands Update website here:

https://www.usviupdate.com

You do not need to test to return to the US after your trip as this is considered a domestic trip.

Schedule your test

If your flight originates from the US and you are a US citizen, regardless of vaccination status:

  • Schedule a rapid antigen or molecular (NAAT or RT-PCR) test for no earlier than 3 days prior (effective Jan 3, 2022) to your arrival in St. Croix. Arrival day counts as day zero, so if you’re arriving on Friday, schedule your test no earlier than Tuesday.
  • At home rapid tests are not accepted unless the results are processed by a lab

If your flight originates from outside the US, please see requirements on the portal website as test type and allowable testing window varies depending on citizenship and mode of travel.

Get your results

Once you have your results, you can access the portal. You cannot save your progress so it’s best to wait until you have results in-hand to start the next steps.
