More changes coming up for travel to Turks and Caicos.
Fully-vaccinated means you must have received your second dose (or single dose in the case of Johnson and Johnson) at least 14 days prior to arrival or entry will be denied.
In addition, the mask, curfew, and business closure requirements have also been extended to 10/31/21.
You do still need a TCI Assured Travel Authorization to board your flight. This is free, done online and required by all visitors, regardless of age.
And… It’s also important to note that a COVID-19 PCR negative test or antigen test must be within 3 days (72 hours) of your arrival date.
The vaccination mandate is in addition to the PCR/antigen test requirement.
What you need to know:
- As of September 1, 2021, all visitors 16 years of age and over must be fully-vaccinated*
- Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and Astrazeneca
- A negative COVID-19 test result must be taken within 3 days prior to travel in the islands
- Children under 10 are exempted from this requirement
- (Mandatory) Insurance must cover COVID-19 medical costs and full hospitalization, doctors’ visits, prescriptions, and air ambulance
- A completed online health screening questionnaire – TCI Assured free online travel authorization
Once a visitor is granted entry, no further COVID-19 tests are required and visitors are permitted to stay for 90 days.
Visitors are free to travel throughout Providenciales and the rest of the Turks and Caicos without restrictions during their stay.
What is accepted as ‘Proof of Vaccination’ for Turks and Caicos?
