Visa Requirements for United States Virgin Islands Citizens
Visa requirements for citizens of the Virgin Islands of the United States are administrative entry restrictions placed on residents of the American Virgin Islands by the authorities of other countries and territories around the world.
As the US Virgin Islands is an unincorporated and organized territory of the United States of America, those born on the Caribbean islands are US citizens and may be issued a United States passport. Therefore, they are subject to the same worldwide visa requirements for citizens of the USA.
At present, United States Virgin Islands passport holders are granted visa-free entry to over 100 countries and territories for varying periods of temporary stay. Visa exemption is granted to travelers from the US Virgin Islands for stays from 15 days up to 1 year depending on the destination.
To visit over 25 other countries for short-term stays, citizens of the US Virgin Islands are able to apply for an eVisa or online visa waiver through a simple Electronic Travel Visa Authorization application. This eliminates the need to wait in long immigration queues at the border to apply for a visa on arrival, or travel to an embassy or consulate to submit an application in person.
Approved electronic travel authorizations and eVisas for American Virgin Islanders are most often issued for purposes of tourism, business, or transit. They allow a stay of between 15 and 90 days depending on the destination.
Additionally, there are up to 80 countries that require nationals of the US Virgin Islands to have an approved embassy visa to cross their borders, no matter the intended duration of the stay or the motive for the visit.
