Trevor Sadler, interCaribbean Chief Executive Officer said “Tortola is a great destination covering a wide range of tourist possibilities, especially for sailing, with quite possibly the largest sailing fleet world-wide. The BVI offers unique Islands, fabulous boutique resorts and exclusive villas. We are happy to be adding another destination to Tortola and removing the obstacles of a Turks & Caicos Passport Holder in visiting the BVI. Also for the BVI citizen the ability to now easily visit friends and family in the Turks & Caicos Islands has become so much easier.
