Nationals and permanent residents seeking to enter as well as persons wishing to depart must submit their request for exemption to the email addres[email protected], for the consideration of the Minister of National Security.

The following documents must be provided along with the request for exemption:

  • Copy of the bio data page of their passport;
  • Copy of their permanent residence stamp in their passport or copy of permanent residence certificate (applicable to permanent residents of Trinidad and Tobago only).

Following the receipt of email requests for entry or departure, the Ministry of National Security will contact the relevant persons to provide further information.

Persons who have already submitted an exemption request for consideration do not need to make another request.
