Because the USVI are a U.S. territory, postage from the U.S. mainland to St. Thomas, St. Croix, or St. John are the same as in the continental United States. Keep in mind, though, that all letters and packages are subject not only to domestic rates, but domestic restrictions as well.

The USVI prides themselves on running a very efficient postal service, reportedly, both quicker and more reliable than in the BVI. Post offices in Saint Croix, Saint John, and Saint Thomas charge $0.50(USD) for a first-class letter to either the United States or Canada, and $0.60(USD) to the United Kingdom. For a postcard, they charge $0.35(USD), to any of the following countries: United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. If your mail is going to any of these places listed above, there is no postal code needed. 

If you are sending mail from the USVI to the United States and vice versa, it can take between 2-14 days to be received. The average time though is about a week. If you are mailing a package or a box, then it will most likely arrive on the end-half of that time frame. Mailing to/from the United Kingdom can take up to 3 weeks and mailing to/from Canada and Australia can take 4+ weeks.
