The British Virgin Islands, or BVI for short, are some of the most-exclusive and least-developed islands of the Caribbean. The resorts, villas, restaurants and other tourist locations attract travelers with a love for sailing and seclusion.

You may want to plan ahead for any unexpected medical event or other issues before starting out on your journey. Consider travel insurance for your vacation or business adventures.

Travel Insurance Requirements for the British Virgin Islands

American and international travelers visiting the British Virgin Islands are required to provide proof of travel insurance which includes minimum coverage for:
