Visiting the US Virgin Islands aboard a yacht

While sailing the BVI, you may decide you'd like to visit St, Thomas or St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. No problem! However, you must clear the yacht and crew through both Customs and Immigration. I know it's tempting to skip that bit and just sail over to St. John for the night ... but please don't.

Yacht Clearance Procedures:

There are 5 Ports of Entry & Exit in the BVI

Note: Some of the charter companies have tracking devices on their yachts. They will know if you cleared the yacht in and out properly or not!

Keep in mind too that should the yacht be confiscated by Customs or Immigration on either side of the border, whomever signed the yacht charter contract will be held financially liable for any and all losses or damages, including any delays to the start of the next charter. That's not a pleasant thought, so please do the right thing. :)
