Turks and Caicos will be requiring all visitors 16 and over to show proof of full vaccination in order to be granted entry to the destination, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The rule will apply to all visitors who are 16 years and over. 

Fully vaccinated means people who have received the full dose of their vaccine, with the final dose administered at least 14 days prior to arrival to Turks and Caicos. 

Proof of vaccination accepted means either e-cards from CVS, Walgreens  or the NHS, or vaccination letters signed by doctors. 

No handwritten vaccination cards will be accepted as proof of vaccination. (For example, for CVS, you can download the CVS App and retrieve an electronic record of your vaccination). 

All travelers need to apply for entry on the TCI Assured Portal (you can find it here). 

All travelers will also need to show proof of a negative PCR or antigen test taken and received within 72 hours before arrival to Turks and Caicos.
