law suit in progress
Listen I have been in every1's shoes. If u want answers call Trinidad. If u cant do that, call the embassy then dial ext.1103 (that's the boss extension). Im taking them to court for theft among other things. do not give up.. keep pushing!! That NY embassy is filled with uneducated fools. They dont even follow their own policies.. thats why im suing them. It took me 8mths to get my passport (thats because I called 3 times a week.) U have to be determined. Call Trinidad if you have to 1868 625 8467 Olive Garcia ext 2033.... Thank me later.

am a citizen of USA and also a Professor
The Trinidad Embassy is run by racists unqualified Indians.Some of them don't even know to spell their name. Look at the employees; all of them are indians and even the Consulate General had issues with black people which was exposed on the Trinidad newspapers this new government Trinidad has gone to the Dogs, with unqualified people as Ministers.abuse of Finances.When this PPP is out of power the indians would be rich from theft with Kamla at the helm.All these people are not qualified Am a citizen and I love USA because laws are obeyed and even the president could be jailed if he is an embezzler as the PPP.After the next elections PNM should jail all the Ministers who thief and throw away the keys.

Waiting For Computerized Birth Certificate
I applied in May 2014 for a computerized birth certificate, as required by th NIB for easy processing of retirement benefit. I have been waiting ever since for an email response that my documents were either received, being processed or any other factor that may or may not affect or caused delay in processing, and that I can forward to the National Ins. Board as proof of activity. To this date, no response. But having read some of the comments here and other places of the lengthy delay in processing, I guess I should have some hope.
It is very sad, however, that in this age of super fast technological systems with massive data transfer capabilities, that anyone should have to wait any lomger than two weeks maximun for any computer generated document. I strongly believe, that the citizens of T&T should be better served/treated..

The most ridicules unfriendly bunch of people
I visited the office to get the new machine readable passport. The staff behaved as if they were all having a very bad day. They moved slower than molasses. They were unfriendly and behave as if we were begging for something. The staff in this government office do not answer the phone, return messages or respond to email - how ridicules is that. Why they bother having phones installed, advertising email. Don't waste your day off going to this office its the worst Trinidad Consulate office. Any other office has to be better that that one.

Trinidad Birth Certificate
I've been trying to check the status of birth certificate application that was submitted 3 months ago with no avail.
I called the consulate number provided on the application, with no luck. The phone is never answered by a live person, you leave messages and no one calls you back. I called the consulate in Miami and get a live person every single time, and any questions I have is answered in a timely manner. I don't get why the Consulate in New York is so unprofessional, no one answers the phone or extensions you were provided nor do they return calls. What kind of government agency is this.
