What is the liquor allowance?
We are planning on bringing back a bit of liquor for gifts on our next cruise (San Juan, St Thomas, St Maarten). I am slightly confused because I have read conflicting reports. Here are my points of confusion
- I read that in St Thomas you can bring back 5 liters but one liter of local liquor. Is this true for all the islands?
- If we bring back more than allowed are we then just taxed on that excess? If so how much how much?
Thanks, Carla ;)
I'll let others who may know better answer the "lawful" aspects of how much. I have also been told I can bring back 5 Liters per person.
If you go to the message boards at http://www.vinow.com
and search for the thread "Bringing alcohol from USVI to states"
there are some good ideas on packing the liquor, etc. so it survives all of the handlers/portes etc.
The site and message board is a great resource for the USVI because it is 90% locals.
