Ridiculous waiting for passport
I never understood what takes so long for a passport to be issued. I am an American and I can get my passport in 2-3 weeks. My friends daughter is now waiting almost 5 months for her Trinidadian Passport. Our travel plans to Trinidad to see her grandmother is becoming a frustrating experience because of the inept attitude of the workers in the Trini embassy in NYC. Get your act together and be polite

No passport
It's a crying shame on trinidad...I applied for the new passport since August 2013...went to trinidad in September with the old passport.... Came back waiting..waiting....waiting for new passport....NOTHING...September, October,November ending of December I got a phone calling saying that 1 letter in my name looks like a A instead of an E ....mind u it looks like...anyways I need to fix it...I did return in early January to the office in ny with correct documents...I was told ok...go home ..u will have you passport in 4 weeks....it's now July 16 and no passport....not even seeing MR PASSPORT in sight...August is right around the corner which makes it 1year waiting on a DAM PASSPORT TO TRINIDAD... I go still wait...because I love my country...but the stupid stupid ppl need to get there dam act together...u ppl can't be dat clueless...or can you????
By the way...I have applied for my USA passport???which u can get by apply at the post office in two weeks....

It is a shame that in this day and age we have to wait two and three months for a passport.nd on top of that we are told that they can give us something to travel with but we must wait in Trinidad for our passport. Are they crazy? what about peoples' jobs nobody has time to sit in Trinidad for a month or more until the passport is ready. That system is backward.This consulate is just having people go back and forth. Disgusting services.
Fed up !

Why is our country so backwards.
I have the same complaint as all of the above. The service at the embassy is substandard at best. The clerks are rude and have no idea what is going on. Nor do they seem to care. I too am having trouble getting answers about my passport application . I applied since March and I still have no answer , no passport, and no idea what is happening. I sent in the yellow form along with my old passport and requested a signature confirmation . That was 3 weeks ago and still nothing. This is madness. I have a friend who is so fed up with Tribidad that she burnt her passport . She is giving up her Trinidad Citizenship!! Shame on Trinidad and Tobago!

worse service ever
T&T Consulate is so backward its a shame...not proud o be a trini anymore. I can't wait to get my US passport. I filed for my son's US a week and a half after mine and got it in the mail within 3wks. They give u a time on when u will receive it but the wait is much longer. I'm so frustrated and need to travel. They don't ever answer the phone and no one has answers to when the passport will be ready. They already have my money but yet still no passport. Smfh
