Obtaining A PO Box on STX

I have searched the boards and I am sure it is on there somewhere but I was wondering what it takes to obtain a PO box. I was told you need a VI drivers license and if that is so...How do I obtain a VI drivers license and are they open on Saturdays at all? I will be on Island this weekend for a quick business trip but will be back May 15th full time. I have signed a lease for a house which has a physical address but no mailing address. I just wondered if it was possible to get a license and PO box or do whatever necessary on Saturday to facilitate this.

Thanks.

You don't need a VI license to get a PO Box. Don't know about post offices out east, but the Frederiksted branch is open Sat morning 9-12.

Kingshill is also open on Saturday morning. All you need is a physical address and ID.

You can also use the "general mail" address for 30 days if you don't get a po box set up right away.
The address is:

YOUR NAME
GENERAL DELIVERY
CHRISTIANSTED, VI 00820

and that goes to the Post office just west of C'sted on Rt 75

At the Gallows Bay post office, I needed a driver's license and major credit card (for ID), along with a signed lease showing my physical address on island.

Thanks! I hadn't even thought to ask these questions, but setting up a PO box is near the top of my "to do when I get there" list." Didn't know anything about general delivery... huge tip for those of us who might have to ship a few things in addition to our luggage!

You can also get one at Mailboxes and More in Sunny Isle. Not the PO, but, I think, much better in terms of service. And you don't need to be a resident of the island--just need to show your driver's license to prove you are who you are.

There's often a waiting list for PO Boxes.
