Visitors arriving by air and sea in the British Virgin Islands will pay a $10 environmental and tourism levy per person, effective Sept. 1.

The fee will be collected at the ports of entry by customs. Residents, visitors 2 years old and under, visitors in transit and guests of the government are exempt.

The government said the proceeds will be used toward environmental protection and improvement, climate change policies and the maintenance and development of tourist sites and activities.

BVI visitors already pay a $20 departure tax, which is included in the price of an airline ticket.

CORRECTION: This article has been revised to state that visitors arriving by land and sea will have to pay the fee; an earlier version said cruise passengers were exempt.
