#TurksandCaicos, January 23, 2018 – Providenciales – The Department of Registration and Citizenship in the Ministry of Border Control and Employment hereby advises the general public that, effective immediately, there will be no extensions made to BOTC Turks and Caicos Islands passports to alter the date of expiration of passport books.
The public is further advised that the issuance of an emergency (limited validity) passport is done so only on the basis of a medical emergency which necessitates travel out of the country and for some government official travel.
An application for renewal of, or issuance of, a full validity passport will be required prior to the issuance of the limited validity passport book. The required documents and fees for the issuance of the limited validity passport is the same as that for a full validity passport.
All holders of BOTC Turks and Caicos Islands passports and/or British Citizen passports are encouraged to ensure that at least six months validity remains on their passport books, and those with a remaining validity period under six months are encouraged to commence the renewal process to ensure that they are not without a valid travel document.
