Do we need passports?

Under the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI)

The passport requirement does NOT apply to U.S. citizens traveling to or returning directly from a U.S. territory. U.S. citizens returning directly from a U.S. territory are not considered to have left the United States and do not need to present a passport. U.S. territories include the following: Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Swains Island, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. If you plan on taking any trips to BVI a passport would be required.

What should we bring?

Pack lightly! Many guests find that they bring too much clothing and unneeded personal items with them. St. Thomas is a very relaxed atmosphere and not much is needed to enjoy your vacation. Beach attire and beach shoes, flip-flops, a hat for shade and plenty of sunscreen are priority. All dining, except for a few restaurants, is very informal. Shorts, collared shirt, and sandals are fine, or you will feel comfortable in “Island Fancy” wear. You will mainly wear shorts and a T-shirt. You may also wish to bring the right shoes for hiking or shopping. No need to pack a hair dryer, iron, or beach towels, as they are provided in each room. Beach necessities (water, ice, sunscreen, beverages) are abundantly for sale around the island. We recommend that you include essential items in a carry-on bag such as medication and one night's worth of clothing (and your bathing suit!) just in case your luggage is delayed.
