Immigration Department Postpones Outreach Academy


The Immigration Department is advising the public that the Immigration Department Services Outreach Academy slated to start on Wednesday June 25 has been postponed.

The Academy is part of the department’s efforts to strengthen its relationship with the public and is one aspect of its overall educational campaign.

Acting Permanent Secretary in the Premier’s Office, Mr. Brodrick Penn stated, “The Government of the Virgin Islands is deeply committed to ensuring that the public fully understands the role of the department and the services provided; as such we will be announcing a new date for the outreach Academy element of the educational campaign.”

He added, “We look forward to launching the Immigration Department’s educational campaign which will include a series of community outreach initiatives, radio and television programming, as well as greater interaction on the Government’s social media sites.”

The Immigration Department is responsible for ensuring that all persons entering the Territory qualify as desirable visitors. Additionally, the department ensures that individuals’ residency, employment and business activities are monitored, regulated and controlled, while it provides professional and courteous services.
