Foreign Outposts in Turks and Caicos

In Turks and Caicos, embassies and consulates are places to go for international assistance

 

Consulates and embassies provide a friendly face abroad and can assist you with lost or stolen passports, emergencies, or just general information.

Local consular offices also provide a list of local doctors, dentists, and medical specialists. Reaching an embassy or consulate for the Turks and Caicos can be difficult because they are located on other islands of the British West Indies but, once contacted, consulates and embassies are valuable travel resources.

If you are involved in an emergency, go to the nearest embassy or consular office for your native country and register as a citizen in the region. If you are injured or become seriously ill, a consulate will help you find medical assistance and, at your request, inform your family or friends. It is unlikely you'll receive government financial assistance for an emergency trip back home, but pre-purchased travel insurance will cover such expenses. Travel insurance is a wise provision for an unforeseen cancellation or incidental medical expenses. Purchase travel insurance directly or through your travel agent rather than a tour operator.

These are not the only consulate offices in Australia, Canada, and the United States, but they are the main offices in these areas. For more information on other consulates around the world, check with the United Kingdom's Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

When visiting the Turks and Caicos, remember that all embassies and consulates are run through their association with the United Kingdom, and you will need to check for your nearest embassy or consulate with that in mind.
