The US Virgin Islands Department of Tourism has expressed an interest in collaborating with its Caribbean neighbours on tourism-enhancing initiatives.
Though not part of the contiguous United States, travel to the Caribbean destination does not require a passport from United States citizens arriving from Puerto Rico or the mainland.
People arriving in the UK from Uruguay, Namibia and the US Virgin Islands will need to self-isolate for ten days. The government added there would be no changes to the safe list over Christmas.
The local department of tourism has sought to assure stakeholders it is working closely with airline partners to ensure the territory has ample airlift during the current restriction on leisure travel.
In an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19, the United States Virgin Islands is closing its doors once again to leisure visitors. From Wednesday, arrivals will be suspended for at least one month.
The United States Virgin Islands will reopen to leisure travellers on Monday. Commissioner of tourism, Joseph Boschulte, revealed the territory is finalising public health and tourism protocols for the return of visitors.
Joe Boschulte, a United States Virgin Islands businessperson and tourism specialist, has been nominated as commissioner for the department of tourism.
