US Virgin Islands to waive visa restrictions for CARICOM citizens
2013-10-19 18:36:38 | (0 Comments)
The governor of the United States Virgin Islands (USVI) John de Jongh says his administration has drafted legislation that will allow visitors from the English-speaking Caribbean to enter that country without a US visa.
This comes as part of the Government’s plans to encourage more CARICOM nationals to visit the USVI.
de Jongh says the proposal has received support in the US House of Representatives, the Senate and the Department of Homeland Security, but notes that there is no timetable for its implementation.
The governor was speaking in Martinique today after meeting with regional tourism officials on the final day of the 2013 Caribbean Tourism Organization’s State of the Industry Conference.
He says the US Virgin Island wants an opportunity to share in the movement of Caribbean nationals throughout the region.
