Do I Need a Visa to Visit the Turks & Caicos?

Canadian citizens using Canadian passports do not require a visa to enter Turks & Caicos for tourism or business stays under thirty (30) days.

Holders of Canadian Permanent Residency status (e.g. Canadian Landed Immigrants) with a current and valid PR card and a current and valid passport do not require a visa to visit Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands or Turks & Caicos if visiting for less than 30 days. You must produce a valid passport and valid Permanent Residence Card as proof of permanent residency.

This is a colony of the United Kingdom, and visas are administered by the U.K. government, and issued through Worldbridge.

All applications and payments are made on-line. You must apply on your own through the government web site.

The UK requires visa applicants to have their fingerprints scanned and digital photographs made of their face. Applicants will have to personally attend one of five locations in Canada for the biometric scanning. These offices are in Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton (and a monthly office in Halifax and St. John's). When you apply you must state which location is most convenient for you, as you will be REQUIRED to attend in person for visa processing.
