Expiration of the Public And Environmental Health (COVID19)(Arriving Passengers Health Clearance) Regulations

The Ministry of Health and Human Services wishes to advise the traveling public that the Public And Environmental Health (COVID-19)(Arriving Passengers Health Clearance) Regulations will expire on March 31 2023.

This therefore means that proof of COVID-19 vaccination will no longer be required for visitors to the Turks and Caicos Islands as of April 1, 2023. 

Persons are strongly encouraged to take general precautions to protect themselves and limit transmission of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses in circulation. This includes: practicing frequent hand hygiene (washing hands with soap and water for at least 30 seconds or use of hand sanitizer), maintain physical distance (at least 6 feet apart), cover your coughs and sneezes and wear a face covering, especially when indoors and around others and particularly if you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms. Eligible persons are strongly encouraged to consider taking COVID-19 vaccine/booster and the flu shot. Those with underlying conditions and the elderly are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated and stay up to date with their boosters. COVID-19 vaccines, the bivalent booster and flu vaccines are available at no cost at all Primary Health Care Clinics.
