Turks and Caicos Islands eases entry requirements starting May 1

GRAND TURK — Starting May 1, 2022, vaccinated travellers arriving in The Turks and Caicos Islands are no longer required to provide a negative COVID-19 test, or proof of travel insurance.

All visitors will also no longer be required to upload their information to the TCI Assured portal, as it will be discontinued on April 30, 2022, and masks will no longer be required in indoors and enclosed spaces.

Proof of vaccination for travellers over 18 years is still required and will be shown at airport checkpoints.

This dissolution of TCI Assured and the ease of entry requirements represents a significant milestone for the Turks and Caicos Islands’ vigilant safety protocols and ongoing vaccine campaign, with more than 80% of the adult population currently vaccinated.

“We are delighted to make it easier for travelers to rediscover the Turks and Caicos Islands,” said Pamela Ewing, Director of Tourism for the Turks and Caicos Islands Tourist Board.

“The wellbeing of our communities has always been our priority, and with the majority of our population vaccinated and a return to normalcy, the Government is lifting restrictions to welcome new and returning visitors to experience our ‘Beautiful by Nature’ destination in an easy, carefree way,” said Ewing.

Effective May 1, 2022, all travellers 18+ must show proof of vaccination (printed card or electronic) at the airports, both at the point of departure and on arrival into the Turks and Caicos Islands, with no additional documents required.
