US citizens can work legally in the USVI without any red tape. Everyone else needs a work visa, which is secured through a sponsor (meaning an employer). Contact your embassy or consulate for more information.

Marinas are a good place to look for jobs on yachts; check the bulletin-board notices or ask around at the nearest bar or restaurant. You can also use a crew placement agency such as Crewseekers International (www.crewseekers.net).

VI Moving Center (www.vimovingcenter.com/employment) has further information on jobs and requirements in various fields.
