COVID-19 Entry Requirements Update
Update 13 August 2021:
The Government of Turks & Caicos is imposing new entry requirements effective 1 September 2021. Preliminary details from the Ministry of Health are as follows:
- All visitors, aged 16 years of age and above, must be "fully vaccinated". Fully vaccinated means that the person has received 2 doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine and 14 days has elapsed since the second dose. The Ministry of Health has not published a list of approved vaccines.
- All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, will still be required to take a negative COVID-19 test no more than 3 days prior to arrival in the islands.
- Visitors which test positive during their stay are required to quarantine, at their expense, for 10 days, and receive a negative COVID-19 test prior to release.
Details of the new policy have not been published by the Ministry of Health. Once details have been published, this information will be updated.
All travelers to the Turks and Caicos are required to obtain pre-travel authorization via the TCI Assured portal. Persons without authorization will not be permitted to board a flight to the Turks and Caicos.
The TCI Assured Travel Authorization is a free authorization and you apply online. You will need:
- A negative COVID-19 test result. The test must be taken within 3 days prior to travel in the islands. Children under 10 are exempted from this requirement.
- Insurance which covers COVID-19 medical costs and full hospitalization, doctors’ visits, prescriptions, and air ambulance.
- Completed online health screening questionnaire (part of the TCI Assured free online travel authorization).
Once granted entry, no further COVID-19 tests are required and visitors are permitted to stay for 90 days (extendable for an additional 90 days). There is no mobile tracking app or daily health checks (as in some other Caribbean countries). Visitors are free to travel throughout Providenciales and the rest of the Turks and Caicos without restrictions during their stay.
