Default Visiting Turks and Caicos

Does anyone know if you need a visa to visit the Grand Turk island? I am on an H1B in the US and taking a cruise to the Bahamas and T&C in April. The ship stops over at Grand Turk for 6 hours.

Not sure about specific places, but in general problems are when you are coming back to US.
If you have stamped and valid h1b for returning back to US, you should be fine.

I have not had any issue or heard of any issues while visiting mexico, hawaii or alaska

Hawaii and Alaska are states that are part of US and you are free to travel anywhere in the 50 states of US without the need to show Visa or travel Document. However its not the same with Mexico. Its a different country.

I meant to ask about a turks & caicos visa. It is a british overseas territory but doesn't seem to require a visa from anyone.

You may not need a visa to visit those British territories....but, you need a visa or AP or GC to enter US. Once you have gone there for visiting (or any other purpose), you have crossed the international border of US.
