First off I want to get a passport for my 11 month old son but both parents have to be there and my work schedule makes it tough and I don't want to waste a days vacation pay to do it, but I have got many different answers from people regarding need for a passport for day trips to BVIs. So does anyone know what the law/rule is. I tried to look online but get TMI to process.

Also do you need a driver's record to get a USVI drivers license? Some said they had to. Others no.

Thanks

Yes, you need passports to travel between the USVI and the BVI but your baby will be fine without one - just bring along his birth certificate.

To the best of my knowledge, all you need to replace your stateside license with a VI license is your current license and a driving record clearance from the VIPD.

I think at one time you did have to get the record, but they changed the requirements about 10 years to make it easier (yes, the VI government actually made something easier!)

You can call BVI IMMIGRATION to see about requirements for child traveling with US parents as to whether a birth certificate will be accepted or not, for a day trip.

Why do both parents have to be there to get baby passport?
Can't your wife submit a notarized letter stating difficulties in getting off work, from you, along with your passport?

We tried to get one before I left and she was sent away. I have no idea the reasoning other than one parent skipping country with baby?
