Turks and Caicos Islands

Information about Turks and Caicos Islands

The islands were part of the UK's Jamaican colony until 1962, when they assumed the status of a separate crown colony upon Jamaica's independence.

The governor of The Bahamas oversaw affairs from 1965 to 1973.

With Bahamian independence, the islands received a separate governor in 1973.

Although independence was agreed upon for 1982, the policy was reversed and the islands remain a British overseas territory.
