Venezuelan migrants form a line to register to work and live in T&T in 2019.

The Ministry of National Security says the preliminary count of Venezuelans who applied for re-registration as of March 26th is approximately 13,800. The following is a press release from the Ministry of National Security:

The Ministry of National Security advises that the preliminary count of Venezuelans who have applied for re-registration as at Friday 26 March, 2021 is approximately 13,800.

The Minister of National Security, the Honorable Stuart R. Young M.P. has agreed to extend the re-registration process to Friday 9 April, 2021 to allow six (6) additional working days for eligible persons to drop off their completed forms seeking re-registration. The Ministry of National Security repeats that, as previously stated, whilst job letters and letters from landlords are desirable, they are not mandatory.

Venezuelan nationals who fail to re-register under the existing process and exercise will be subject to deportation (as are all illegal immigrants in Trinidad and Tobago). Accordingly, persons who are eligible to re-register, who have not already done so, should ensure that they re-register during this final extension period.
