I am considering visiting several virgin islands by plane and wish to bring colapsible zodiac 15 ft boat on plane with me.When I land would I have to pay import tax at each island?

Wow, would you really trust a forum for answers on such a question as that? I sure wouldn't. I would contact the consulate for the nation which controls those particular Virgin Islands, as there are numerous nations involved (at least two that I'm aware of...) and ask them for official clarification or to direct you to the relevant laws so that you can see for yourself, confirm 100% what the answer is to a question like that before spending the fees to get the item on the plane.

You should really do the same.

All I'm really asking is (when entering BVI would I be charged a large custom fee when arriving by plane to BVI with a collapsed zodiac )

Why not ring BVI customs direct and ask them?

That's your best line to get the correct data.

My guess is No as long as you do not sell it and when departing you have it with you as long as you do not over stay the period that custom charges are instigated.

It would be great Also if you could post the answer when you have determined such so we all can be informed.

I look forward to your reply.
