The BVI Beacon issued the following information on September 27, 2021.

"Starting Oct. 1, fully vaccinated travellers entering the territory will no longer have to register online through the BVI Gateway portal, Premier Andrew Fahie announced Tuesday night on Virgin Islands Party Radio.

Instead, they will need to present a negative Covid-19 test and proof of vaccination, and to test for a fee upon arrival, the premier said of a Cabinet decision made Tuesday.

If requirements are breached, he warned, passengers can individually be fined up to $5,000 and carriers can be fined up to $10,000 per passenger.

Other restrictions have been relaxed in recent days as well.

The nightly curfew now starts at 1 a.m. instead of 11 p.m., for instance, and nightclubs and entertainment venues are allowed to reopen if all staff and patrons are fully vaccinated, according to a new curfew order in effect through Oct. 1.

Health and Social Development Minister Carvin Malone said that training sessions will be conducted with business owners and that arrangements are being made to ensure staff and patrons of such venues are fully vaccinated." continued
