Good morning Rafael,

When I had a BVI flag I use Mark Dubois: mark.dubois@abm.vg

Keep in mind, with a BVI flag you are only allow to sail for 1 month in the BVI past that you will have to import your vessel (and pay 10% tax).

Alexandre,

 

Are you sure about the one month for a BVI flagged boat? Do you have a source for more information?

Alexandre,

 

Thanks!!!! Good to know. We will adjust our plans accordingly. I guess we will have to hop back to USVI after a short stent in the BVI. We have a pending inquiry into HM Customs about this very thing. Being influenced by the Brits, it will probably take them year, or two, to get to the email. Not sure that any port of call is worth a 5% levee on the boat.

 

With best regards,

 

Mark

Hello Mark,

Yes I am. This is what the customs told me in Tortola.
I was BVI registered and arrived in Tortola Oct 31st, I had 1 month "free stay" if exceeding, would have to pay 5% import tax (not 10% as I wrote).
My plan was to change to a St Martin (french) flag anyway.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hello Mark,

Yes, I forgot to write just that, as long as you leave, you can come back and are given another month.
Not worth 5% !!!

I should have written for information, for non-BVI flag, after 1 month, you have to pay a temporary import permit which is valid for 1 year, I paid around $200 for it.

Sincerely Alexandre

Alexandre,


 

Thanks!!!! Good
to know. We will adjust our plans accordingly. I guess we
will have to hop back
to USVI after a short stent in the BVI. We have a pending
inquiry into HM
Customs about this very thing. Being influenced by the
Brits, it will probably
take them year, or two, to get to the email. Not sure that
any port of call is
worth a 5% levee on the boat.



 

With best
regards,

 

Mark

Hello Mark,



Yes I am. This is what the customs told me in Tortola.

I was BVI registered and arrived in Tortola Oct 31st, I had
1 month "free
stay" if exceeding, would have to pay 5% import tax
(not 10% as I wrote).

My plan was to change to a St Martin (french) flag anyway.




Sincerely, Alexandre

Alexandre,





 



Are you sure

about the one month for a BVI flagged boat? Do you have a

source for more

information?
