  • Before you arrive, get a certified PCR negative test within five days prior to arrival if you are from low-risk countries; and within three days prior to arrival if you are from medium to high-risk countries.
  • Ensure your medical insurance includes coverage for COVID-19.
  • Make sure to visit the BVI Gateway Online Portal to upload your test results and receive your BVI Gateway Traveler Authorization Certificate. Now you are ready to board your flight to the BVI!
  • Upon arrival at the Welcome Center at your port of entry, officials will perform health screening including a temperature check and PCR test. You will then take “approved” transportation to your yacht.
  • Once aboard, you will be kicking back and relaxing from Day 1. You can sail, swim and snorkel all day within our territorial waters, spending restful nights at one of the several approved mooring sites, which will be covered in your briefing.
  • On Day 4, the final PCR-test that returns negative will allow you to enjoy all that BVI has to offer on your BVI LOVE sailing adventure.

  • Costs on arrival: $175 per person – includes 2 PCR tests and smartphone app/tracking bracelet.
