Sand, safety and a breathe of fresh air

If you’re like most people, the need to rest your body and brain can seem intense right now. And while ‘getting away’ has always been a soothing remedy for most, there’s now the question of safety, nobody can ignore.

As you well know, we’re opening our island. This meant reviewing how we do things and how to best keep our destination healthy. And we’re happy to say that so far, we’ve done very well. 

To greet the abundance of world travellers that are eagerly booked to come back, our local government has announced safety protocol to ensure we have the safest holiday destination in the Caribbean.

A quality assurance portal called TCI Assured is being put into place (it should be up and running by July 15th). Basically, it’s a certification provided to all visitors with proof of negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken within 5 days of arrival (and not 72 hours anymore) – no test needed for children aged 12 and under. Travellers will also be asked to have a travel insurance covering medical evacuation, and to fill out a simple health screening questionnaire, kind of like the customs form you fill out whenever travelling to a foreign country.  

Sounds like a lot? Not really. Consider this : everyone flying in will have tested negative. This means you’re travelling safely, without worrying about anyone around you. It also guarantees you won’t be quarantined for 14 days, when you should be enjoying your vacation. 

Turks and Caicos prides itself on a reputation that’s built on excellence and distinction. Safety won’t be an exception. 

We’ll protect our visitors and our residents so you have a safe, spectacular place to escape to, when things are less sunny in your part of the world.

Turks and Caicos – Beautiful by Nature / Safe by design!
