Traveling 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.

What are the current entry requirements?

TCI Assured Approval is needed for entry into Turks and Caicos

We are happy to share that testing has expanded to include the following:

  • Professionally administered Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction Tests (RT-PCR) 
  • Nuclei Acid Amplification tests (NAA)
  • RNA or molecular tests
  • Antigen tests

**Please note that testing must be administered by a certified medical professional.

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, NAA, RNA or Antigen test is no older than 3 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:
