Travelling during COVID can certainly seem daunting, but you may be surprised just how easy and simple it is to make your much-needed getaway to Turks and Caicos a reality.

Things in the world have changed so frequently in 2020 that it is hard to keep up with what the latest requirements are from one destination to the next, but we are here to help you understand how easy it is to book your tickets to Turks and Caicos and be on your way!

What are the current entry requirements?

TCI Assured Approval is needed for entry into Turks and Caicos

First, you need to be “TCI Assured” for entry into Turks and Caicos, which requires the following:

  • A negative COVID-19 PCR test result from an accredited laboratory – antigen and antibody tests are not currently accepted
  • Medical/Travel insurance that covers COVID-19 medical costs, full hospitalization, doctors’ visits, prescriptions and medevac
  • Complete health screening questionnaire and travel authorization form found on the TCI Assured portal

And that is it! Now, there are a few more details that are important so that you can get your approval for entry:

  • Ensure your negative COVID-19 PCR test is no older than 5 days prior to your date of travel to Turks and Caicos
  • Results should be uploaded to the TCI Assured Portal no less than 24 hours before arrival

Here is an example to assist you with how the timeline works:

Now that you are familiar with the requirements, you must be wondering “How do I get tested and get my results in time?” Well first, let us assure you that since the borders reopened to travellers on July 22nd 2020 we have had many visitors who have successfully navigated the process and have boasted about how easy it all was….and they have their 2020 Turks and Caicos photo memories to prove it!
