To gain entrance to the British Virgin Islands from the United States,
you need a valid passport
Unless you already live here, no way. Tortola's an island!
Go to Road Town, where you must check in with customs. From there, cross
the island westward to Cane Garden Bay.
Beef Island at Tortola
is in the process of expanding their runways and airport to accommodate
jets. Until that project is complete, you have a choice of two destinations
prior to Tortola: San Juan, Puerto Rico or St. Thomas, USVI. Several major
airlines book flights all the way to St. Thomas and to Tortola, by way
of San Juan.
Via San Juan
Many major airlines fly
you all the way to Tortola by way of Beef Island. A typical flight jets
into San Juan, Puerto Rico. From there it's just a short flight in a smaller
airplane to Beef Island (EIS), where you'll check in at customs at the
Beef Island connects to Tortola by way of the Queen Elizabeth Bridge.
If you provide us with your arrival informaton in advance we will arrange for a driver to meet you. Or, you can catch a cab to Cane Garden Bay or rent a car, but if you plan to drive,
remember to STAY LEFT. The British drive on the left, unlike Americans,
who drive on the right side of the street.
Don't forget to budget $20 for the Departure Fee, payable in cash (U.S.
currency only) upon departure from the Beef Island airport.
Via St. Thomas
Many major airlines fly directly St. Thomas. From there you can grab a
cab to catch a ferry to West End, Tortola. The ferry ride can take about
45 minutes. Some folks like the air-to-water route, while others prefer
the immediate gratification of flying into Beef Island from San Juan.
