Ahead of the reopening for tourists on Wednesday, July 22, the Turks and Caicos Islands have announced an update to their travel requirements.

Travelers to Turks and Caicos will now be required to take a COVID-19 PCR test within five days of visiting the islands, according to the Honorable Ralph Higgs, Minister of Tourism for the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats.

The government will be working with TCI Assured, a quality assurance pre-travel program and portal, which will be live as of July 15.

The previously announced requirement, detailed by the islands in late May, was that tourists needed to have a negative test within three days of arriving on the islands.

Children under the age of 10 years old are not required to be tested. Additionally, travelers must have medical or 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 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.

The Turks and Caicos Islands comprise 40 islands and cays, only nine of which are inhabited. Over the years, the destination has gained a reputation for its pristine beaches, which are arguably some of the most beautiful in the world.
