BVI by private chartered boat

Do you need a passport to enter the BVI by private chartered boat? What if we stay in the water and get dropped off someplace from the water? Why would you need a passport ? Where would you go through customs and immigration from the water?

Technically, yes, you need a passport to enter from the water. The easiest two places to clear in are Great harbor on Jost Van Dyke and Sopers Hole. The process does not take but a few minutes. Take your boats papers and all passports with you. Only the captain needs to go.

You MUST go thru C&I before landing anywhere in the BVI. To do otherwise would be a crime and is serious if you are found entering the country without going thru C&I

You do need a passport to enter the BVI
