New COVID-19 Restrictions
The Government has implemented a series of new COVID-19 related restrictions and protocols:
Effective 24 January 2022
- All persons age 16 and up must show proof of vaccination (or a negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours) to enter a restaurant, bar, nightclub, and similar venues. Patrons must also present a Government-issued ID (original, must contain a holograph) which matches the vaccine record. There is no exception for restaurants at hotels or all-inclusive resorts.
- All persons age 16 and up must show proof of vaccination (or a negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours) to attend some events.
Effective 28 January 2022
- All visitors age 2 and up will require a negative COVID-19 test for entry to the islands. Previously, visitors under 10 were exempt from the testing requirement.
- All returning vaccinated residents, who currently are exempt from providing a COVID-19 test for entry, will need to be tested at a Government center within 2 days of arrival.
- Self-administered home tests are not accepted for the 24-hour test rule.
You need a TCI Assured Travel Authorization to board your flight. This is a free authorization and you apply online. You’ll need:
- All visitors 16 years of age and over must be fully-vaccinated (see below for details). This is in addition to all other requirements
- A negative COVID-19 test result (see below for acceptable types). The test must be taken within 3 days prior to travel in the islands. Children under 2 are exempted from this requirement.
- Insurance which covers COVID-19 medical costs and full hospitalization, doctors’ visits, prescriptions, air ambulance and quarantine. Visitors are fully responsible for the cost of quarantine in the event they test positive during their stay.
- Completed online health screening questionnaire (part of the TCI Assured free online travel authorization).
Once granted entry, no further COVID-19 tests are required and visitors are permitted to stay for 90 days (extendable for an additional 90 days). There is no mobile tracking app or daily health checks (as in some other Caribbean countries). Visitors are free to travel throughout Providenciales and the rest of the Turks and Caicos without restrictions during their stay.
Observe the following public safety restrictions:
- Masks are required in all public places until 28 February 2022. This applies to all persons over the age of 2 years. Persons not wearing a mask in a public place are subject to a $550 fine.
- There are no restrictions on inter-island travel.
- Restaurants and bars are open (there are capacity restrictions).
