Turks & Caicos Islands Travel Safe – Helpful Links

The TCI Assured Program is a Pre-Travel Authorization Program

All travelers to the Turks and Caicos Islands are required to visit the TCI Assured Travel Authorization Portal in order to obtain a travel authorization for arrival in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Once a passenger registers at the Authorization Portal and completes the registration process as outlined, a travel authorization notification will be given. Airlines will not be able to board passengers without this authorization.

The travel authorization form should be presented at the time of check-in to the appropriate airline so please print all documents to have on hand at the airport. Persons without an authorization slip either physical or e-copy will not be able to travel to the islands.

We look forward to welcoming you to our ‘Beautiful by Nature’ Turks and Caicos Islands.

There are several companies that can provide the required Covid-19 PCR test within 5 days of travel. Please contact us for a list of sources. TCI Safe website can also guide you through the insurance and COVID-19 testing requirements.
