Great doctors. Best care.

Work Permit and Residency Medicals

We provide a dedicated work permit and residency medical team who handle the entire process from start to finish.

We are a one stop shop- no external referrals are required as we offer internal medicine and cardiology services which represent the No.1 reason for deferral by the Ministry of Health.

Our team consists of a doctor, physician’s assistant, nurse and administrator. All are familiar with all roles and thus any member of the team will be able to assist your queries.

The physician’s assistant and administrator will directly assist you in registering and completing your online application and form.

All testing is in house and performed within 12 hours allowing for a fast and efficient service.

If you have no medical conditions then the application is completed by the end of the same day.


The number one cause of delay in processing by the Turks and Caicos Migrant Health team are cardiac issues which we can address in the clinic quickly. If we recognise that the TCI team is likely to reject an application we will recommend that you do the tests immediately.
