Turks and Caicos to Reopen Borders July 22, 2020

Updated: Jul 21


In a media announcement released by the Turks and Caicos Islands Tourist Board, international travelers planning to come will be required to be certified by TCI Assured. 


Upon arrival by air, visitors are expected to present their TCI Assured certifications to local authorities, all of whom will be wearing personal protective equipment, before proceeding through immigration where temperature checks will also take place. 


In consideration of testing availability across the country, the Turks and Caicos Islands is now requiring a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from a test taken within five days of travel, rather than the previous requirement of a test to be taken within three days of travel. Children under the age of 10 years old are not required to be tested. Additionally, travelers must have medical / travel insurance that covers medevac (insurance companies providing the prerequisite insurance will also be available on the portal), a completed health screening questionnaire, and certification that they have read and agreed to the privacy policy document. These requirements must be complete and uploaded to the TCI Assured portal, which will be available on the Turk and Caicos Islands Tourist Board website (www.turksandcaicostourism), in advance of their arrival. Once travelers register on the TCI Assured portal and complete the requirements as outlined, a travel authorization notification will be given. The TCI Assured travel authorization should be presented at the time of check-in to the appropriate airline; airlines will not be able to board passengers without this authorization.


Airports, hotels, restaurants and other public and private services relating to tourism will also follow new operational protocols. These new measures will incorporate health screenings, physical distancing, mandatory use of face coverings in public, recommended use of face coverings on the beach, and social gatherings limited to 25 people or less. 


The announcement of the reopening from Turks and Caicos Islands tourism board also include news relating to airline partners, including American Airlines, JetBlue, Delta Airlines, and Air Canada. They will resume flight services from within the United States and Canada as of July 22. Private jet terminals will open on July 22 as well in conjunction with the reopening of Providenciales International Airport.
