Shipping to Virgin Islands (US)
You can ship to any where you would like in the US Virgin Islands, with everywhere in the island chain being services for delivery, even if some places are slower than others.

Security concerns when shipping to Virgin Islands (US)
The main security concern that is associated with shipping to the US Virgin Islands is associated with some light theft. Some of the Port Authority offices don't exactly have the tightest security going on down there so it leaves the shipments open to some criminals who can swipe a package or two that they think may be valuable. This does not happen all that often, but often enough to note when you are planning on sending something to one of the islands. Because of this, it is best to get a tracking number and some insurance out on your parcels just to be safe.
