No more extensions for expired TT ID cards

The Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) has announced that there will be no further extensions for the use of old TT national identification cards.

Citizens were previously given an extension of March 31st, 2022. However, that time lapsed on Friday.

According to a Newsday report, the EBC said, “The commission is not considering a further extension to the validity of expired identification cards at this time. All EBC offices are open to the public, albeit by appointment. The EBC recently concluded in March, a three-month facility for renewal of ID cards whereby our offices were open on Saturdays to facilitate identification card renewals by appointment.

“The commission will also be establishing temporary registration offices in areas where it has seen the greatest/highest demand for appointments. Details of this upcoming initiative will be shared with the public imminently.”
