Ministry of Tourism Encourages Advanced Submission of TCI Assured Authorization for Returning Residents


Ministry of Tourism, Culture, Environment, Heritage, Maritime & Gaming

On 1st May 2021, the Turks and Caicos Islands Government announced an amendment in the pre-entry requirements for Turks and Caicos Islands residents who are fully vaccinated. Returning residents who are fully vaccinated, having received the second dose of the vaccine at least two (2) weeks prior to travel and which was administered within the Turks and Caicos Islands, are no longer required to submit a negative COVID-19 PCR test to the TCI Assured Portal.

All residents who are beneficiaries for waiver of this protocol are reminded that applications must be submitted to the TCI Assured Portal at least 24 hours in advance of their intended date of arrival.

The TCI Assured Portal is a manual system, as such, travelers are discouraged from submitting applications that are not within the prescribed timeframe. Failure to comply may result in applications not being processed in a timely manner which may consequently cause travel delays.

The general public is also reminded that residents who have not been fully vaccinated in the Turks and Caicos Islands will be required to upload a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken 5 days prior to date of arrival into the country, onto the TCI Assured Portal. These applications must also be submitted to the TCI Assured Portal at least 24 hours in advance of intended arrival date.

For additional information or inquiries regarding the TCI Assured travel authorization process, please contact the Ministry of Tourism by emailing or by calling 649- 232-7233, 649-232-5900 or 649-232-4484 between 8:00am and 6:00pm local time.
