Do I have to register my restraining order in the U.S. Virgin Islands in order to get it enforced?

No. The U.S. Virgin Islands’ law gives full protection to an out-of-state restraining order as long as you can show the officer a copy of the order and can truthfully tell the officer that you believe the order is still in effect. The police officer does need to believe that it is a valid (real) order.1
