Since the airport’s reopening in August, we have welcomed over 75 happy families to our beautiful Providenciales, Turks & Caicos. Among these guests was our very own CEO, Dan Kasal, who took the time to record his process from start to finish. In this blog post, we’ll go over the process that gets you to paradise!
TCI Assured Certification
Instead of closing its borders to American travelers, Turks & Caicos have implemented a series of entry requirements and regulations in order to reduce the risk of infection/spread whilst being permissive of tourism -win-win! What you’ll need:
Negative COVID Test: A negative PCR test taken within 5 days of arrival. TCI Safe offers a great alternative through government endorsed testing with a guaranteed turnaround of 48 hours.
Medical Insurance: Insurance that covers medevac and hospitalization. TCI Safe also offers government-endorsed insurance for about $60 per person.

Flight & Arrival
From the moment you step on the plane to TCI, you and everyone on board will have proof of health in the form of the TCI Assured certification. Along with the use of a mask and the practice of safe distancing, everyone on board should enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that all possible precautions are being enforced.
Experience on island
Even though there is a curfew in place extending until the 30th of September, which requires all businesses to close by 8:00pm, the experience on island is still a great one. With plenty of options for fun things to do, places to eat, food delivery services, tour operators, and of course the world’s most sought after beaches -paradise remains a paradise.
Fun Things To Do
Most of our favorite businesses and tour operators remain fully operational whilst abiding by the new regulations. It’s important to note that all businesses currently operating must go through an extensive process in order to be TCI Assured (certified to operate during COVID). On island, you’ll find tour operators offering the following services:
- Private & public boat charting tours
- Glow Worm Sunset cruise
- Sight-seeing tours
- Island hopping tours
- Sports fishing (big game and bottom fish)
- Equipment rental (snorkel, paddleboards, kayaks, etc.)
