The TCI Assured Program is a Pre-Travel Authorization Program

The Turks and Caicos is introducing measures to manage the risks associated with the COVID 19 pandemic. From July 22nd 2020, all travelers to the Turks and Caicos Islands will be required to visit the TCI Assured Travel Authorization Portal in order to obtain a travel authorization for arrival in the Turks and Caicos Islands. This means all visitors/tourists and residents alike.

The portal will have a link for visitors/tourists as well as residents of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The travel authorization form should be presented at the time of check-in to the appropriate airline.

Persons without an authorization slip either physical or e copy will not be able to travel to the islands.

Once a passenger registers at the Authorization Portal and completes the registration process as outlined, a travel authorization notification will be given. Airlines will not be able to board passengers without this authorization.

We look forward to welcoming you to our ‘Beautiful by Nature’ Turks and Caicos Islands.
