Cruzan Rum -- how much to take home

June 06, 2017 10:24PM

Am getting different stories. How much liquor can one adult bring back and does it have to be in our suitcases or can we carry it in the plane in a cardboard box that's designed for liquor bottles? Have discoverd Kmart and Cost U Less on St. Thomas for the best prices.

Duty-Free Allowances:

We have duty-free shopping on so you can buy lots of goodies. Any U.S. resident, including children, can return (or mail) to the mainland $1,600 worth of duty-free imports every thirty days. If you go over your $1,600 allowance, THANK YOU! Okay, seriously, if you go over your allowance, Virgin Islands purchases are dutiable at a flat rate of 6% on the next $1,000.

U.S. residents over the age of 21 can return with five bottles of liquor duty-free, or six if one of the bottles is locally produced, such as local favorite Cruzan Rum.

Plants in soil cannot be taken to the mainland, but many of our fruits can. Feel free to call the Department of Agriculture at 340-778-1696 with any questions.

For more information:

For the most up-to-date information on travel requirements and duty-free allowances from the U.S. Virgin Islands, please visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website at www.cbp.gov, or call (340) 773-1490 if you have any specific questions.

You cannot take liquor through TSA. Remember the 2 oz. rule. You can buy it in the departure lounge, after the screening, at the airport.
