US denies visa waiver for Trinidad and Tobago nationals

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, Nov 4, CMC – The United States Friday denied reports that Trinidad and Tobago nationals no longer required visas to enter the North American country.

The US embassy here said that the reports that the visa had been abolished for Trinidad and Tobago were circulating on social media.

“The U.S. Embassy would like to remind travellers using Trinidad and Tobago passports, wishing to visit the United States, of the continued requirement of a valid visa.

“Recent reports on social media advising that the Department of State has placed Trinidad and Tobago on the Visa Waiver Programme are inaccurate. Citizens of Trinidad and Tobago are required to possess a valid visa to enter the U.S,” the embassy said.

It also warned applicants to exercise caution with their personal information and to refrain from paying anyone who promises to process their ‘visa’ or to expedite the application process.
