BVI TO RE-OPEN SEA BORDERS NEXT MONTH

Regional 17 Mar, 2021 Follow News

BVI Minister of Health and Social Development Carvin Malone

The British Virgin Islands government is targeting mid-April to start gradually reopening its maritime borders.

There has been an outcry by the territory’s private sector that the continued restrictions were hurting businesses and had called on the government to give a clear indication of its plans.

Maritime traffic provides a vital commercial link between the BVI and the outside world especially via the neighbouring United States Virgin Islands with cargo and passenger movement by ferry and yachting.

In an update in the House of Assembly Minister of Health and Social Development Carvin Malone said the ongoing vaccination campaign was critical in realising the April objective of opening the ocean borders and relaxing the strict entry requirements.
