U.S.A. to require Covid-19 test for international travel; U.S. Virgin Islands travel unaffected.

CDC is set to require a Covid-19 test for all international travelers entering the USA; travel to and from the U.S. Virgin Islands is unaffected, officials say.

Starting January 26th, every person arriving in the United States via an international location will be required to show proof of a negative covid-19 test prior to entering the country.

This restriction will affect travel everywhere in the world, including every island in the Caribbean, except the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The Virgin Islands Department of Tourism has confirmed that the U.S.V.I does not qualify as a foreign, or international location.

Per the CDC release, tests are required for international destinations that are not a state, territory or possession of the United States.

The U.S. Virgin Islands are a United States territory. Our residents are U.S. citizens — and U.S. travelers do not need a passport to visit here.

The only reason U.S. travelers would need a coronavirus test is if their home state required it to return to the state, like New York. Be sure to check with your official state department of health.
