All visitors and residents require a passport to enter the Turks and Caicos Islands.
On arrival in the Turks and Caicos Islands, you must show a valid passport. You must also have a valid onward or return ticket.
Visitors are granted entry for 90 days. You can normally extend this by visiting an office of the Immigration Department. Listings and contact information for Immigration Department locations.
Some US states and Canadian provinces issue enhanced drivers licences (EDLs) which include the bearer's nationality. These may be able to be used in some circumstances for entry (by some cruise lines, for example), but we highly recommend you travel with a valid passport. For example, if you miss your cruise ship you will be unable to fly home with an EDL, and there is no American (or Canadian) embassy or consulate in the country.
The Turks and Caicos Islands Government has recently adopted some strict rules on the importation of animals. See Travelling with Pets for more information.
