my have an emergency to get birthcertificate of passport extention
I was told today that unless i have a family emergency I am NOT able to get my passport extended or renewed. for 2 year I've been trying to get my birth certificate these people are nonchalant and disrespectful. I drop off all documentation and they are moving as though i am some kind of illegal immigrant. This is why poeople leave Trinidad and tobago because of the unprofessionalism of the people that work there. Miss Ramanarine just told me verbatim "oh well if you have an emergency 'maybe' we can arrange something for you" ON 1/12/2015 I went into the consulate and I took every single piece of documenation and I even offered to have someone going to Trinidad to take the documents the lady declined! she told me to call in 3 weeks and when I called after 3 weeks she said that there was a minor 'hiccup' in the documents going to Trinidad. God don't like ugly what you guys are doing comes back simple Karma!! When I told her that i was going to expose them Ms. Ramnarine was like oh I am threatening her and her staff. YOU guys will get yours GOD Dont Sleep!

Renewal of passport
My passport will expire in August and I would like to find out the policy of renewing it. Do I come to the office with all the documents or do I call for an appointment.

Unprofessional , u would think
That it is the United States , but they
Have the same Trinidadian mentality.
They need to go down in the hall of

I'm happy to say that my experience was very good left Delaware early applied for a renewal of my new passport got it within the time 2 to 3 weeks. applied for certificate of character and everything has been working out exactly within the time that they told me.Pray and ask God to put the right people to help you and he will, there are some very good people working there and are willing to help . Some people also need to lose their attitude,come with a good spirit stop listen to what other people have to say go with a good attitude and Pray and God will do the rest.Be blessed people.

New Passport
Good day. Let me just say that i initially applied for a new passport on July 21,2014. In my mind i had already was conditioned to wait some months.
Well it happened. After processing all necessary forms and other documents, i finally log on to the web site and got the message to send in the old passport and the yellow receipt.
Actually, it took lest time to get the passport than it took to have the initial interview.
If you are a real Trinidadian, you all know very well that everything takes time.
To T & T Consulate, an active T & T passport, means family reunions, investments,visiting sick love ones, in some cases saying farewell for the last time.

Lets do our best.
