BVI — Country Profile

The British Virgin Islands known commonly as the BVI and its people as British Virgin Islanders is a British dependant territory whose external affairs, defense and public service still reside under the authority of the Queen, who is the Head of State with a resident appointed Governor.

A locally elected parliament consisting of the Executive and legislative councils forms the government of this stable democracy. The BVI provides all the security and political stability associated with the British tradition.

Being in contact with the BVI is fast and easy. A highly developed telecommunications network provides for state of the art telephone, e-mail and fax service internationally. Logistically, the BVI is strategically placed very close to Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands with daily direct flights to and from the international airport at Beef Island, which is connected to the main island of Tortola by a short bridge.

The BVI is a beautiful place to live, visit or just to do business. With a number of resorts, family-type villas, smaller Inns and hotels, you will be able to find the accommodation just right for you when on business or vacation. Most stay over visitors come by yacht to the many marinas which are located throughout the islands which constitute the Virgin Islands. The BVI is made up with numerous small islands, many of which are uninhabited. The larger and more developed islands are Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Josh Van Dyke. The capital is Road Town and situated in Tortola. The population of the BVI is approximately 19,000.

There are two main sectors in the islands economy, tourism and off-shore financial services. The tourism sector boasts world class yachting opportunities, long and un-crowded, white, sandy beaches in the Caribbean Sea. Many islands with variety such as Anegada, which is a flat coral island compared to Tortola, which is hilly and provides vantage points to enjoy the many scenes. Don’t miss the culture through island art, music, dance, local history and cuisine. There are many events throughout the year which highlights some of this rich and varied culture.

In the offshore financial services sector, laws of offshore companies were passed as early as 1984, but in 2004, a new company’s act was put in place — the BVI Business Company Act. This is a revised and amended BVI company act providing user friendly legislation for BVI companies.

Since the introduction of BVI international business companies, the BVI has developed a reputation for providing professional service with integrity, while maintaining the privacy expected by offshore companies. The highly developed business infrastructure includes among others, International banking services, corporate services, re-invoicing, accounting, mutual funds, captive insurance companies and legal services to make it a true financial centre.
