Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Cheers!

BVI Newbie: The Guide

BVI Newbie, the guide for new residents and visitors just hit newstands this week. 

This 83-page book is full of great information for "newbies" like us and it's presented in an entertaining, (dare I say cheeky?) sort of way.  Don't you just love the mascot???

From sections on the immigration & work permit process and finding a home, to healthcare and tropical weather warnings, BVI Newbie pretty much covers it all! 

And no worries, if you find yourself thousands of miles away from the nearest BVI business which currently has stacks and stacks of these colorful little books, you can read it online right HERE!

All I have to say is, "Where was this a year ago when we were moving to the BVI?"  Ha!

Thanks so much for this blog post, exactly the information I was looking for. My husband and I are thinking of moving to the BVI, we have our own internet business (www.tomsplanner.com) and currently live in The Netherlands but business is going good and we long for a bit more sunshine :-)

I really enjoy reading your blog!

Thanks,
Bianca

This is Nick Cunha, the CD for Newbie. Thanks for reading. I am from the USA and would have loved to have Newbie back in 2005. We will be adding testimonials to the home page in the near future, if you would like to submit something we'd love to post it. If you are on Facebook you can like Newbie through the website to stay up to date with procedures and laws as they change and then of course the goings on in the BVI.

Cheers
N

Thanks for the info. I have already lived in the BVI for some time and found this to be useful.
