The online BVI Gateway Portal that facilitates the registration of all travellers for authorisation to travel into the Territory from December 1 is now live and is accepting applications.


The portal is located at and can also be accessed via, bvitourism/ and for travellers who are applying to visit the Territory. Once their application is approved, they will be issued a Travel Authorisation Certificate.


Each traveller, including each child, must have completed an application to obtain a travel certificate for presentation to the airline authorities. All travellers can upload their necessary documents through the gateway portal, as well as pay the total fee of $175, which covers all airport and seaport administration fees, the arrival testing as well as the Day 4 PCR tests, the tracking App, and any monitoring devices or bracelets.

The travel authorisation certificate streamlines the process at the airport and seaport and removes the need to fill out paper forms.
