Gov’t launches TTravel Pass – a mandatory requirement when borders reopen

Government has launched the TTRAVEL pass, an online platform where a mandatory certificate is generated before entry into Trinidad and Tobago.

This platform will play a pivotal role in the reopening of the borders which is carded for July 17th.

Speaking during the launch this morning, Minister Stuart Young, in his capacity as Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, said “Travellers must upload information such as vaccine status and proof, as well as a negative PCR COVID-19 test no older than three days prior to travel.”

He also warned that those providing false information would be fined $350,000 and six months imprisonment.

Young also said non-vaccinated nationals who are returning must also upload confirmation that they have paid for their hotel for quarantine and transportation to get there.

Nationals who leave Trinidad and Tobago and return can use the immunization card given at the time of vaccination to re-enter.

Young said the international vaccine cards being issued by CMOH offices are for persons to use in international countries where there is a requirement for certified proof of vaccinations.

He said government is working to soon provide electronic vaccination certificates for the public.

Travellers who visit must provide their;

Passport Information
Negative PCR test taken no earlier than 72 hours before arrival.
Vaccination Card for fully vaccinated passengers.
Confirmation of paid State supervised Accommodation (For unvaccinated or partially vaccinated passengers)
Itinerary (e.g. Airline or Flight number)
General health information

A travel authorisation form is then generated with a scannable QR code.

Young said they are confident that the platform can withstand the online traffic and hotlines will be launched today for travellers seeking assistance on using the online platform.
