Do I need a passport or visa to enter?
A valid passport is required of U.S. citizens for entry to Trinidad and Tobago. The U.S. passport card alone is not accepted for entry to Trinidad and Tobago or for direct air travel from Trinidad and Tobago back to the United States. U.S. citizens do not need a visa for tourism or business-related visits of 90 days or less. Work permits are required for compensated and some non-compensated employment, including missionary work. Visas may be required for travel for purposes other than business or tourism. Questions pertaining to visas should be directed to the Embassy of Trinidad and Tobago, 1708 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20036, telephone (202) 467-6490, or the Trinidad and Tobago Consulates in Miami or New York City. Visit the Embassy of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago website for the most current visa information.
If you are a U.S. Citizen or a dual U.S. citizen, you must have a valid U.S. passport in order to board U.S.-bound flights departing from Trinidad and Tobago. Airlines are not permitted to board U.S. citizen passengers carrying Certificates of Naturalization or expired U.S. passports. Such passengers are refused boarding until they return with a valid U.S. passport.
