St. John Duty-Free Shops
The US Virgin Islands are outside the US Customs Zone and can set their own tariffs resulting in 20% - 50% savings . Add that to the fact that there is no sales or luxury tax and that $1200 of your purchases are duty free and you will find that shopping on St. John is more than fun it is also very reasonable.
With no customs duties on watches, cameras, perfume, jewelry, liquor, china, leather goods and more, this shopper's paradise is a duty-free port for travelers - and there are no sales or luxury taxes. U.S. visitors are allowed a duty-free shopping allowance of $1200 - twice the quota of any other Caribbean island and three times that of European countries. In addition to this exemption, shoppers may also mail home to friends and family one gift per day (other than liquor or tobacco) each worth $100 or less.
