Turks & Caicos: Increased Charges for Boats in Transit

Countries: Turks & Caicos

Prices have increased for short stays in the Turks and Caicos, from $15 for a 7 day stay, to $100. This fee is payable even if simply stopping to refuel.

If you remain in the Islands after your 7 days are up, you have to pay a further $300 for a 90 day cruising permit.

Andy Pulman reports, "Due to ESE winds we have ended up having to come to Turks & Caicos to help a friend who has broken down nr French Cay. We arrived in the Turks & Caicos to only get fuel "under the Q flag & maritime law", expecting to pay $15 for a 7 day visitors cruising permit (as it said in a new cruise book from 3 months ago), but discovered that they have increased the prices from $15 for 7 days to $100 for 7 days. We were also held by customs until we paid or were told that the boat would be impounded."
