One of the 14 British Overseas Territories, the country of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) works both independently and alongside the UK to remain one of the Caribbean’s most dynamic and secure nations
As a British Overseas Territory, TCI is a largely self-governing nation with its own constitution, and the UK is responsible for its external affairs. Beyond politics, the nation holds deep cultural and historical bonds with the UK. From English being the country’s official language to the fact that Turks and Caicos Islanders drive on the left-hand side of the road, the British connection permeates life on the islands
Direct flights between London and Turks and Caicos, which make a brief stoppover in Antigua, take around 11.5 hours.
TCI offers direct flight connections between Providenciales International Airport and the UK, the US, Canada, Bahamas, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Cuba, Antigua, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands.
