ST. THOMAS, USVI Arrival & Departure Information

ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE PROCEDURES St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands is considered US territory and therefore, upon arrival, you will be subject to United States immigration and customs rules, with regulation imposed by United States federal authorities. If you are arriving from a non-United States location, or if you have a non-US flag or have foreign crew or guests, and the marina is your first port of call in the United States, then you are required to clear immigration and customs into the United States with the Department of Customs and Border Protection.

CUSTOMS & IMMIGRATION When arriving by boat, please adhere to the following procedures: • The vessel master must immediately proceed to a port of entry office • No crew or passengers may disembark before being properly cleared

You will require the following documents: • Vessel registration documents • Your clearance documentation from the last port of call • Copy of passenger and crew list • Passports of all crew and guests • A copy of the ship’s registry • Vessel Entrance or Clearance Statement • Form 1300 and I-94 for all foreign guests and crew

Those reaching the port of entry after closing hours are required to raise a quarantine flag and report in the next morning.

All vessels must file a notice of departure 24 hours before leaving. A vessel may file a notification of departure at the same time as arrival. If departure time changes more than six hours from initial notification, an update must be filed.
