Flight and Transfers
There are no direct flights from Ireland to the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) meaning you’ll have to stop-over or transfer at one of the other Caribbean islands (usually Antigua).
Irish passport holders do not require a visa to visit the BVIs. Check this with us before you travel to be on the safe side. Irish Citizens travelling to the British Virgin Islands require a full Irish Passport which must be valid for 6 months after departure from this country. All children and infants must also have their own passports.
English is the official language.
Taxis are expensive, so it can work out cheaper to rent if you’re going to be driving a lot. Travelling by boat can be a lot of fun, especially if you’re a keen sailor.

Vaccination and Health
Check with your GP or visit a specialist travel clinic for specific advice relating to travel to the BVIs. As with all Caribbean destinations, drinking plenty of water and using plenty of mosquito repellent are an excellent idea. Please visit NaTHNaC and MASTA Travel health for more information
