Immigration Services

Immigration Consultants

Our experience and knowledgeable Team provides assistance to clients in the following areas: Visas, Work Permits, Student Permits, CSME, Extensions, Crew Change, Shore Passes, Deportees, Stowaways and all Other Immigration Matters. All expatriates seeking employment locally must obtain a Work Permit which is issued by the Ministry of National Security, Trinidad & Tobago. The Work Permit application process is completed at our office, where we have a high-level team of experienced staff. It should be noted that according to the Laws of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, chapter 18.01, section 10, subsection 1, non- nationals should not be employed without a valid Work Permit. It is advisable to submit applications for Work Permits at least eight (8) weeks, prior to the date on which the proposed employee is required to assume duties, as processing of an application is normally concluded within this period. We have a very strong relationship with the local Immigration Department which benefits we extend to our clients.
