Operations During Covid

Learn more on BVI COVID-19 Travel Protocols.

As of November 2021

If your COVID-19 rapid test is taken within 48 hours of your arrival to the BVI, you will not be required to take an additional rapid test upon entry.

If traveling from the US to STT and planning to take the ferry over to Tortola you’ll need a rapid test within 5 days of arrival into STT (we recommend within 48 hours so that you will not be required to retest on arrival into the BVI). 

Upload travel info and rapid test to the travel portal.

Returning to the US - if applicable to our trainees

Travelers will need to schedule a rapid COVID test within 24 hours of departure from the BVI to San Juan or 5 days if traveling by ferry to St. Thomas. The US is accepting the BINAXNOW at home rapid tests. If you are to secure those and bring them with you, you can test on the boat (with wifi access) and not have to coordinate a stop at one of the clinics prior to departure. This option will save you time and money.


With regard to rescheduling, should there be a COVID-19 related issues or inclement weather, we will reschedule without penalty. If cancelling, our standard cancellation policy will apply: outside of 45 days refundable less $300 cancellation fee plus the cost of the training materials.  No refund within 45 days of start date.  If considering trip insurance, we've partnered with insuremytrip.com.
