BVI is off limits to UK travellers

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) government has imposed a travel ban on anyone travelling from the United Kingdom to the territory. The travel ban on the UK is due to a new strain of COVID-19 there. Grenada and Jamaica have also imposed a travel ban on the UK.

BVI Health Minister Carvin Malone said the ban will take effect on Jan. 11. The ban will not apply to nationals, belongers, residents, work permit holders, anyone permitted to reside in the territory, diplomats, and anyone employed by the government and its statutory bodies.

“Cabinet decided to implement a 14-day quarantine period for all persons allowed to travel to the BVI under the previously-mentioned exceptions, provided that they undergo an RT-PCR testing regime on days on entry — Day 0, Day 7, and Day 14,” Malone stated.

“Cabinet decided to use 20 positive cases as a trigger to inform a decision by cabinet regarding travel restrictions to the territory except for nationals, belongers, residents, work permit holders, persons permitted to reside in the territory, diplomats and persons employed by government and statutory agencies.”
