The US Virgin Islands are a territory of the
United States and therefore use the same postal
system and US mail rates. You can mail an
unlimited amount of locally purchased gifts back
to the states. These will not count in your
total USVI Duty-Free allowance.
We are more than just a beach destination and
bathing suits worn elsewhere, especially in the
downtown areas, tends to offend the local
residents. So, please, wear proper attire (no
bare midriffs or chests) in town and public
areas away from the beach.
The Virgin Island area code is 340. There are
public phones throughout the commercial areas.
You can make calls just as you would in the
United States using credit cards or by calling
collect. There is an AT&T Calling Center located
in Havensight, across from the cruise ship dock
on route 30.
Your cell phone may work here as well. AT&T,
Sprint and Innovative Wireless all have local
service and will allow you to make calls based
on your rate plan. Roaming may or may not incur
additional charges. Check with your provider for
specific rates and coverage.
