A Virgin Islands contractor license bond is a prerequisite for contracting to perform any for-pay work in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Given its placement in a zone subject to damage by Atlantic tropical storms and its strategic importance to the United States, construction is always in progress on the three islands that compose the VIs. Contractor licensing is regulated by the Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs (DLCA). A general contractor must be a resident of the U.S. Virgin Islands for at least thirtydays immediately prior to filing an application for licensing. An examination is also given by the DLCA to "promote high standards of professional performance for those persons working in construction field".
The Virgin Islands contractor bond requirement is simple. Pursuant to 27 V.I.C. § 338:
The contractor surety bond and accompanying application materials are submitted as follows:
