What are your thoughts about living in St Thomas, USVI and commuting to work in Tortola?
Are there permits that would exclude me from having to go through customs everyday?
I would most likely maintain an apartment in Tortola and take my personal boat back and forth to St Thomas 2-3 times per week.
Good morning Chris,
Personally, I would not recommend it. There is no line which allows residents commuting to enter any quicker than other residents. It usually takes a very long time, up to an hour to clear customs.
You will also still need to obtain a full work permit the same as everyone else.
Going on the weekends can be frustrating as well if you’re not a patient person. However, if you are someone who values Mc Donald’s cheeseburgers to much to give then up, then perhaps it will be worth your while 😉
