Foreign Outposts in the USVI

International alliances make embassies and consulates trickier in the Virgin Islands

Embassies and consulates exist in the Virgin Islands to help direct foreign travelers in case of a diplomatic or emergency situation.

Embassies and consulates offer travelers a friendly face, and someone who speaks the same language as them in countries where language is a barrier.  While this is not an issue in the Virgin Islands, embassies and consulates can assist travelers when they have lost their passport, if there is a medical emergency, or a legal issue. 

If one of these things happens to you during your vacation, you can visit the nearest embassy or consular office of your native country and register as a citizen.  The office will then assist you in dealing with whatever issues you may be having.  In the event of a true emergency, remember to dial 9-9-9 in the British Virgin Islands, and 9-1-1 in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
