The Turks and Caicos Islands are proposing to restart tourism and reopen borders from July 22. Being one of the leading tourist destinations, the islands are organizing to welcome tourists from overseas following all safety measures.
Sharlene Cartwright Robinson, Premier of the Turks and Caicos Islands, made this revelation on Friday and said that the brand new guidelines and all the additional specifications regarding this will be shared in the coming weeks.
According to Pamela Ewing, Director of Tourism for the Turks and Caicos Islands Tourist Board, the government is keen and excited to welcome visitors back to the stunning Turks and Caicos Islands later this summer. She also said that they are preparing to reopen the borders in July.
She further said, “Our intention is to cautiously reboot the tourism sector, laying the foundation for short- and long-term recovery.”
Corresponding to the tourist boards, the hotels, resorts, villas, restaurants, bars, and tour operators are planning themselves to accept bookings for future holidays. Not only this, the moment these islands are all prepared and equipped with all safety measures, flight services will also recommence from within the United States of America, Canada, and Europe, as of now.
Private jet stations are also all set to open on July 22, though, the Grand Turk Cruise Center will continue closed until August 31.
Along with Turks and Caicos Islands, several other prominent Caribbean tourist destinations are also gearing up to welcome holidaymakers. The US Virgin Islands opened their gates to travelers on June 1, and Saint Lucia is set to reopen from June 4.
