Traveling to Trinidad and Tobago just got a bit easier as the country’s government has discontinued its TT Travel Pass system.
Minister of Health, Terrence Deyalsingh announced that the country’s Travel Pass system has been discontinued citing a plateauing in the number of COVID-19 cases, along with other supporting regional and international data. In a press conference, Minister of Health, Terrence Deyalsingh noted that cases have leveled off to around 200 cases per day, saying that they “are seeing a waning of this acute phase of the pandemic”, but reminded travelers and citizens that COVID-19 pandemic is still not over.
With TT Travel Pass gone, anyone can enter the country without having the prove their vaccination status. However, regardless of whether you took the vaccine or not, you will need to provide a negative PCR or antigen test taken within 48 hours of your planned arrival time in Trinidad and/or Tobago. If you do travel without a negative test result, you will be required to quarantine at a state-approved facility at your own expense, with release being guaranteed once you provide a negative PCR or antigen test.
Trinidad and Tobago’s entry protocols still are a bit stricter as many other Caribbean islands have either discontinued testing requirements for vaccinated travelers, or have dropped tests all together in favor of passengers filling out a simple online embarkation/disembarkation form.
