British Virgin Islands & Covid-19

BVI drops Covid-19 entry test

From a press release issued today, 14 July 2022, the Minister for Health and Social Development announced that effective Friday July 15th, persons visiting the [British] Virgin Islands will no longer be required to present a negative Covid-19 test to gain entry.

The Cabinet of the Virgin Islands passed an amendment to the Covid-19 Control and Suppression (Entry of Persons) Regulation on July 13th that revokes Covid-19 testing requirements.

Minister for Health and Social Development Honourable Marlon Penn said that further relaxation of the Covid-19 Suppression measures is based on the reduced impact of the disease and the move from pandemic to endemic.

Honourable Penn said, “Currently the statistics are revealing that the virus is having a very minimal impact on those affected and the mortality rates have decreased significantly. That is why we feel at this stage we can re-open the borders and return to pre-COVID normal with regards to travel to the Territory.”

The Minister for Health is further urging persons to remain vigilant and continue to practice good hand hygiene and wear a mask when in questionable environments to reduce the risk of exposure.
