Why be Ashame
Why be ashame its your country, this is what we use too. They want to follow all other countries including the USA, especially when we are speaking about clothes and cars. Well here somthing you should follow. BE PROFESSIONAL POLITE.Leave that pigish attitude in Trinidad . This is America for crying out loud. If they were to hire Americans to work there, you all will complain and say they take your jobs. Get real and do the job. Why you have to wait 4-5mths to get a Passport in 2014.You can get a USA passport in 1 day if needed. WHY DON'T YOU ALL FOLLOW THAT.

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

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

I waited from 2011 to get an appointment for my new passport, My appointment was in June 2013 I had some problems about a name which I carried that was not in my birth certificate, I was told by the interviewing officer to go on the 3rd floor to swear an affidavit I spent a $100.00 US, my documents came to Trinidad and it took about five months before I got a reply so I spent unnecessary money because the affidavit was of no use, I still had to spend more money to do a deed of recertification which is costing me. The clerk that attended to me, to give me this information was very rude and unprofessional sorry to say but I can't wait to get my US passport. I am in NY and I never thought in this time that my people will be behaving like this heaven help us all.
