COVID Test Grid for 5 day deadline

Insurance Requirements – At this time the Turks & Caicos Government requires all incoming travelers to be in possession of Travel Insurance that covers Covid-19 repatriation/medivac insurance.

The TCHTA, in conjunction with TCI SAFE™, has created an approved and affordable assurance package for you and your family that includes Medical Evacuation. 

The TCI SAFE™ bespoke coverage does not replace Travel Insurance coverage options. For more information on securing your trip expenses among other coverage options click here>>> 

TCI Assured Portal – Once you have received your negative test results document and fulfilled the Insurance requirements, these documents must be uploaded electronically to the TCI Assured portal within 72 hours prior to arrival in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Each applicant will be provided with a username and password to access the application so that it can be completed in multiple sessions. Once submitted the information is then verified and a TCI Assured Travel Authorization sticker will be issued to the traveler.

As a precautionary measure, please ensure to print two copies of each document to bring with you.

There is no Quarantine period required upon arrival to the Turks & Caicos Islands for visitors once they have tested negative for the virus.
