The Turks and Caicos Islands are made up of nine main islands and approximately 40 additional smaller islands and remote cays. The scattered archipelago is socially distanced by nature and attracts tourists year-round, thanks to its turquoise waters, white sand beaches, and legendary diving. The idyllic collection of islands recently opened their borders to international visitors on July 22. Travel Requirements: All travelers need to apply for and obtain a travel authorization through the dedicated TCI Travel Authorisation portal. Applicants must present a negative COVID-19 PCR (real-time polymerase chain reaction) test result taken within five days of the departure date.
