Travel Tips



Federal and state partners of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security hope that you have enjoyed your stay in the Virgin Islands. As you leave, keep in mind the following advice to help make your trip through the airport as efficient and comfortable as possible:

ARRIVE ON TIME. Remember to leave adequate time to check baggage and move through security. Security measures in the Virgin Islands are unique. All passengers and crew traveling from the U.S. Virgin Islands to the continental United States and Puerto Rico must be cleared by officers of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to determine admissibility to the United States. Each individual must complete the CBP Declaration Form 6059B. Check with airlines for recommended arrival time.

HAVE THE FOLLOWING READY. Passengers should be prepared to present their own boarding pass and a valid federal or state issued government ID, such as a valid driver's license or passport with your name as it appears on your boarding pass. You will have to show these items twice. Once to CBP and the second time to TSA security personnel.

usvi-travel-tipsRISK BASED SECURITY. Passengers 12 and younger can now leave their shoes on during security screening. Passengers 75 and older will undergo similar modified screening procedures to those 12 and under and will be able to leave on their shoes and a light jacket or outer wear when passing through security. Travelers and families of passengers with disabilities or medical conditions may call the TSA Cares helpline toll free at 855-787-2227, 72 hours prior to traveling with any questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint.

FISH AND WILDLIFE. In order to keep our islands beautiful, we must protect our natural resources. The VI code prohibits the taking, catching, possessing, transporting or exporting of indigenous species. The prohibition also includes the removal of coral, sea shells, sand, and other native species, flora and fauna. Commercially caught legal size conch and whelk are the only shells that can be removed from the territory. Some of the items may also be considered prohibited based on TSA security protocol.

Federal and state partners of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security remind travelers to be vigilant by reporting suspicious activity to local law enforcement. If you see something, say something. The traveling public plays an important role in security.
