Is this still the form you use for a fishing license? Does anyone have the FAX or email for the person currently handling thaw permit process.

(This as of 6/2012)
Email Kenrick Thomas (KenThomas@gov.vg) and he will send you a form.
You fill it out and provide the info below and $45.

1. A Valid picture I'D (Passport/drivers licence) (COLORED)
2. Credit Card information (Visa/Master Card, name as it appears on the card, expiration date and credit card number
3. A fax number to which we can fax you a copy of the licence once it has been processed.

Hope that helps!

The $45 is per person, or anyone who handles the rod and reel. We do not have a fax at the house (no land line) so he emailed our license.

Ken is no longer handling the fishing permits. The new email to use is nrl@gov.vg

Marylene Tyson helped me with my friend's license. Very quick and easy process. Have it printed out and ready to go. We set sail on Sunday morning!

June 2015 Update:

The new email address to use is cfd@gov.vg.
Website is www.bvicfd.org

Whole process took less than 24 hours. Needed to download the "Pleasure Fishing License Application" and the credit card authorization form from the site. Fill those in, scan them as well as your driver's license or passport and email all of those to the address above. $45.

Can only do it within 2 weeks of the time period you actually need the license.

Is this info still good for getting a license?

Edit: Never mind. Just sent them an email, and this is still the place.
There was no mention of a two-week window prior to trip.
