I have been receiving many questions regarding travel restrictions to the British Virgin Islands since they reopened on Dec 1st.  Let me walk you through these easy steps to ensure awareness and safety for your next trip to the BVIs.

Covid Procedures for the British Virgin Islands Before and During Your Stay

Five days before you land at Tortola (airport code EIS) airport, you must have a negative PCR Covid test.  Forty eight hours before your flight departs, you must upload your test results and other information into BVI’s online portal. Once uploaded, a Travel Authorization Certificate will then be sent to allow you to travel into the Tortola airport. This process is similar to the current protocols in the Bahamas.

When you land on Tortola, there is an entirely different welcoming procedure than other Caribbean islands. First of all you will again have to take another PCR Covid Test. After taking the test, the only requirement is to go straight to your villa or yacht and quarantine for four days.  You will also be given you a tracking wristband, which will need to be worn during your entire stay on the island. This is not the end of the world, but is just another method to ensure everyone’s safety while traveling.

After four days of quarantine, as long as your last PCR test comes back negative, you are free to move around in areas that are considered low risk and low traffic. Unfortunately, you will not be able to move throughout the entire territory just yet due to the restrictions currently in place.

To make things as easy as possible for our clients we can help by connecting you to our preferred physician who can send you in-home PCR testing kits for $130 per test plus shipping.  We also have a partnership with a medical practice out of Charlotte NC that can guide you on how to test correctly via video conferencing.  Once you have completed your test you seal it up and overnight it to a lab in either south Florida or Las Vegas (which ever is closest to you).  Then within 24 hours your test results will be emailed to you.  Please keep in mind the labs are not open on Saturday or Sunday.   

With the above protocols covered, let’s focus now on what we are most excited about: the gorgeous places to relax in the British Virgin Islands!

The Elegant Private Islands and Villas of the British Virgin Islands

Necker Island | Ultra Luxurious Private Island in the North Sound

Welcome to Necker Island, your private island paradise, owned by Sir Richard Branson. This is barefoot luxury at its finest. Necker is located in the beautiful and unspoiled British Virgin Islands and can accommodate up to 40 guests. If you visit the island in September or October (these months will vary) then you can share the island and book an individual room for stays of 7 nights. We call these ‘Celebration Weeks,’ so if you are interested in this option, contact us for more details. 

Necker provides plenty of beach areas to sunbathe and enjoy the numerous water adventures. Main Beach is where most of the water activities are based.

You will see a stunning array of wildlife on Necker during your stay, from lemurs and flamingos to giant tortoises. The island’s friendly staff will be delighted to introduce you and arrange a feeding time that you’re welcome to attend. After a day of outdoor adventures come to the Beach House!
