Customs and Duties


Customs and Duties

Customs in the Turks and Caicos is straightforward and simple. On the flight you will receive two forms. The first is your customs declaration, and you should fill out one per family. The second form is a Turks & Caicos Embarkation and Disembarkation Form, which each person must fill out. Both forms must be filled out completely before you can get in the customs line. Make sure to keep the stub from the Disembarkation Form; you'll need to show it to leave the island. If you are 17 years old or older, you are allowed to bring in free of import duty 1 liter of spirits or 2 liters of wine; either 200 cigarettes or 100 cigarillos or 50 cigars or 250 grams of smoking tobacco, and 50 grams of perfume or 0.25 liters of eau de toilette. If you have $10,000 or more in cash you must declare it.

The immigration entrance lines can be long, especially when several planes arrive in quick succession. Make sure you have filled the forms completely before you get off the plane.
