COVID-19 – UPDATE
We are welcoming international visitors to the Turks & Caicos Islands.
For the health and safety of your fellow travellers and the people of the Turks & Caicos Islands (“TCI”), you must complete the following entry requirements.
Starting on September 1, 2021, all travelers 16 and older will be required to present proof of vaccination through TCI Assured, a quality assurance pre-travel program and portal, prior to entering the country. Travelers must be fully vaccinated, with the second shot taken over two weeks prior to traveling, or one shot taken over two weeks prior for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The vaccines that are currently being accepted are Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Comirnaty, Spikevax, and Vaxzevria. The TCI Assured portal will accept proof of vaccination in the form of a digital or paper copy of proof of vaccination (unless exempted under the regulations).
Visitors aged 10-15 do not need to be vaccinated but must present a negative COVID-19 test result. Visitors under 10 years old are not required to be vaccinated or present a negative COVID-19 test result. Exempt visitors include only those with clear proof from a doctor that they are medically exempt from taking the vaccine and will still be required to present a negative COVID-19 test result prior to traveling.
TCI requires all visitors to electronically submit the following entry requirements in order to receive a TCI Assured Certification. A 14-day quarantine period will not be required once you have received your Certification Sticker.
PRE-ARRIVAL TEST RESULTS
All visitors, regardless of vaccination status, must receive a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR, NAA, RNA or Antigen Test, within 3 days prior to arrival.

All travelers must be in possession of medical, evacuation, and repatriation insurance.

Starting January 26 2021, Canada AND the United States require negative Covid tests for inbound international air travel. Arriving travelers will have to test negative for Covid-19 within 3 days of their flight back home.
The Turks and Caicos Islands has expanded its testing capacity and the Tourism Board has compiled all testing clinics on this page:
Some of our guests have been to Seven Stars and were very satisfied. You can even book your appointment online.
You could also have Omni Medical come over and test you directly at the villa (for an extra $10).
