You pay a departure fee of $5.00 per person when you leave. You can pay that fee at the customs building next to the ferry dock on Virgin Gorda before departure to Tortola.
Hi there sorry for asking a Q...how much is the ferry from st T to VG to st J?
This website will answer all of your ferry schedule and pricing questions:
is there another custom fee in Tortola before going to st John
The ferry services include the $25.00 custom fee in the price of the ticket. A private company usually does not.
Why would there be an additional $25 custom fee?
The response earlier there was only a $5 fee from VG would be due.
Is BVI government custom fee $5, $25 or $30? Can it be paid with CC or cash only?
$5.00 is a "departure tax." The departure tax is $5.00 for a departure by sea, except for cruise boat passengers, who pay $7.00 pp. Departure by air is $20.00pp. The tax may be paid by credit card.
I have never had to pay a "customs fee" (different than a "departure tax") directly. It was always built in. The fee is suppose to be per boat, but some private charters try to use it as a revenue source from what I have read.
If you are using the ferry system you will not have to worry about it.
Here is the email address for the BVI government if you have further questions:
