If anyone from the consulate is reading this, can you please give us some sort of guidance here. I do not have my passport and you took my old expired one. Please answer some questions on your website:
Are you currently working on the passports?
What is the expected additional delay?
Why the delay?
Can you return the old passport in the meantime?
Please recognize that a wait beyond one year to renew a passport is shamefull and unacceptable.

I applied for my electronic birth certificate on February 28th 2014, I purchased the money orders for two copies and received receipts but have not received the documents. I called the to office to no avail, I emailed the office no reply ,every time I check online , sorry no records found.
this office is a joke and playing with people sanity, I cannot believe that in this century with all the modern technology that these folks are so backward.

Staff that is employed. There. ..I noticed they had. A steel pan in a show case....that said. Made in.********.there was nothing. In this place that made me feel that .was in a sanctuary..made for nationals.. After goin thru the rigga me roll ...as we say..I was told I had to come back cause.

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
