No passport? No problem if you’re looking at the USVI – especially if you haven’t received your new or renewed passport yet due to massive (covid) delays.

In a nutshell: American Airlines is increasing flights to the US Virgin Islands in November due to strong travel demand from the Northeast, Midwest, and the South Central regions of the United States.

You may recall that the US Virgin Islands opened for tourism and then closed again in mid-August. This is good news for tourism with these additional American Airlines flights to the area.

St. Thomas will see the most with two daily flights from Charlotte; daily flights from Philadelphia; and Saturday service from both Chicago and Dallas-Fort Worth during the first half of the month, followed by daily flights from both cities  – just in time for Thanksgiving, which is typically the busiest time of year for air travel.

These flights are in addition to the 3x daily service between Miami and St. Thomas.

What about St. Croix ?  Well, starting in November there will be two flights a day from Miami as well as daily from Charlotte during the second half of November.  This is in addition to the existing Saturday service.

The timing is good too as these additional flights align with the USVI’s roll out of enhanced prescreening travel protocols.

So, what is required for travel to USVI?

All visitors to the US Virgin Islands, 5 and older, will be required to use the USVI Travel Screening Portal and submit a Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) test result.  This is a new edition that incorporates QR and color-coding technology to process and confirm passengers’ submissions.

If you’re considering travel to the US Virgin Islands, you will be required to provide either a COVID-19 antigen (molecular/PCR/rapid) test taken and negative result received – both within five days of commencement of travel to the USVI – or – a COVID-19 antibody test taken and positive result received (both within four months of commencement of travel to the area).
