US to BVI to US Travel During Covid-19 Restrictions

Updated June 1, 2022

Dear Guests,

There are some complicated steps and processes in order to vacation in the BI during times of Covid and to comply not only with the BVI entry protocols, but also those for the USVI.

Here are the major points entering the BVI and returning to the USVI with Dolphin Water Taxi.

  1. There is no longer a requirement when coming from the United States to the US Virgin Islands to complete the USVI Travel Portal.
  2. When traveling through to the BVI, a copy of the vaccination record and a test within 2 days is required. Those who are unvaccinated or without a 2-day test should call or text 340-774-2628 for more information about travel to the BVI..
  3. When returning from the BVI to the USVI with Dolphin Water Taxi, guests must have a negative test within 5 days of re-entry and then complete the USVI Travel Portal ( and get the green QR code prior to your pickup.  (Dolphin recommends our guests bring along a TeleMed test for your convenience to comply with the return to the USVI negative test requirement.)

If any dolphin guests have left over unused test kits we're happy to purchase them from you on your return for future use by guest who may need one in the BVI.
