Well the day is nearly here. After delays and changes and push backs. The passport thing is coming to a head. June 1st you will need a passport to island hop down here. Yes you will still be able to come and go from the mainland by air without one but that is it. Cruise ship passengers will need a passport to disembark at most ports and more importantly you will need a passport to get back and forth from the BVI by boat, that means ferry, private charter, private boat etc.
