Gov’t to waiver visitor’s visa for certain countries to boost tourism

Gov’t to waiver visitor’s visa for certain countries to boost tourism

As one of several initiatives to boost tourism and ultimately the economy, the Government of the Virgin Islands (VI) has plans to lift visitor’s visa restrictions for certain countries.

Noting that the VI’s main tourism products and attractions remain intact and so does the demand for it, Premier and Minister of Finance Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1), in a statement under the theme ‘Get ready to move: Our economy is going into overdrive’, on April 16, 2021, Premier Fahie said tourist arrivals will get an additional boost when the territory launches a special visitor’s VISA waiver for persons from specific countries who may have been deterred from visiting the VI due to current VISA restrictions.

“Such persons would be able to visit the Virgin Islands on a one-month single entry VISA once they have a return airline ticket and proof of secured and approved accommodation.

“This will benefit our hotels, villas and other accommodations, car rentals, taxi and tour operators, restaurants and other businesses,” Hon Fahie stated.

Visa restrictions

There are over 90 countries whose nationals required a visa to enter the Virgin Islands.
