Trav­ellers will no longer be re­quired to ob­tain a trav­el pass to en­ter T&T come June 1 as the sys­tem will be dis­con­tin­ued. It’s the lat­est eas­ing of COVID-19 re­stric­tions in the coun­try, how­ev­er, neg­a­tive tests are still re­quired pri­or to en­try.

Speak­ing dur­ing Wednes­day’s vir­tu­al press con­fer­ence, Min­is­ter of Health Ter­rence Deyals­ingh said the move is at­trib­uted to an on­go­ing plateau in COVID-19 hos­pi­tal­i­sa­tions and what he said is “a wan­ing of this acute phase of the pan­dem­ic.”

“What this means is that un­vaxed na­tion­als and non-na­tion­als can en­ter Trinidad and To­ba­go so you don’t have to prove your vac­ci­na­tion sta­tus, how­ev­er, you do have to pro­vide ei­ther a neg­a­tive PCR or an anti­gen test 48 hours pri­or to en­try,” he said.

“In the ab­sence of a test that per­son will be asked to go in­to state-su­per­vised quar­an­tine at their cost and pro­vide a neg­a­tive PCR or anti­gen at any time dur­ing their quar­an­tine pe­ri­od as a con­di­tion of re­lease be­fore go­ing home,” he said
