The Duty-Free allowance for US Citizens is $1600.00 -- Double that of other islands!
When shopping on St. Croix, US citizens can enjoy a Duty- Free Allowance of $1600.00 per person, including children, every 30 days whether buying to pack or mail. This could add up to a $6400.00 joint declaration for a family of four residing in one household and traveling together!

You may also take 5 cartons of cigarettes and 6 bottles of liquor back as long as 1 of the bottles is a product made in the VI such as Cruzan Rum. Liquor boxes are free to check aboard your return flight!
Outside this allowance you can mail gifts to friends and relatives (not including tobacco and alcohol)--one package a day to the same address up to $200.00 in value with no declaration.
