US Virgin Islands Immigration Information Entry Visa


Since the US Virgin Islands is a US Territory, American citizens travelling to or from St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas are considered not to have left the USA, and thus do not need to present a passport.

Valid passport is also not required by:

• Canadian nationals arriving from anywhere in the Western hemisphere with at least one proof of identity;

• nationals of Canada and the UK with proof of residence in Bermuda or Canada and returning there from a visit to a country in North, Central or South America (except Cuba).

Notes: For nationals of countries under the Visa Waiver Pilot Program, passports must be valid for at least 90 days from date of entry (except for nationals of Andorra, Brunei, San Marino and Slovenia, who must hold passports valid for six months from date of departure). For all other nationals, passports must be valid for six months from date of entry.


Visa is required by all nationals except the following:

• nationals exempted under passport exemptions;

• nationals of countries under the Visa Waiver Pilot Program: Andorra, Australia, Brunei, EU countries (except nationals of Greece, who do require a visa), Iceland, Japan, Liechtenstein, Monaco, New Zealand, Norway, San Marino, Singapore, Slovenia, Switzerland and Uruguay;

• UK nationals resident in the Cayman Islands or the Turks & Caicos Islands who arrive directly from those islands for non-immigration purposes, provided they are in possession of an official certificate as proof of no criminal record;

• transit passengers flying with certain airlines authorised to carry foreign nationals in transit without a visa, provided they continue their journey from the same airport within eight hours and hold valid onward or return documentation.

Note: Immigration requirements for the USVI are the same as for the USA.

Required Documents for Visa

Postal or drop-box applications:

• Completed visa application form DS-156.
• Passport (valid through six months after entry).
• One passport-size colour photo (5x5 cm, head size 2.5-3.5 cm, front-view, light background, maximum six months old).

• Supporting documents: DS-158 (male between 16 and 45 also need a DS-157).

For applications through travel agent, applicants should contact the travel agent for details on paying the visa fee. Further documentation may be required to substantiate details such as the purpose of visit plus proof of intention to return to country of residence.
