REGISTRATION SYSTEM FOR NATIONALS ABROAD (RSNA)

The Registration System for Nationals Abroad (RSNA) is a free service provided by the Ministry of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs for Trinidad and Tobago nationals travelling overseas or living outside of Trinidad and Tobago. The details you provide when you register will help our embassy and crisis staff to contact you and provide better assistance in an emergency such as a natural or man-made disaster or civil disturbance.

Trinidad and Tobago nationals travelling or residing abroad should register at the nearest Trinidad and Tobago Overseas Mission, particularly in countries with a risk of natural disasters or which are undergoing a period of unrest. The purpose of this register is to enable the Mission to identify and locate nationals in cases of emergency as well as provide assistance for nationals in situations of need. 

Given the current operations of the High Commission, nationals are urged to register via the website link register.foreign.gov.tt


The High Commission for the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago based in Ottawa, Canada’s Federal Capital has the responsibility in Canada for the conduct of the relations between the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago and the Government of Canada. The High Commission is headed by a High Commissioner who is the official representative of the President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago to Canada, and is appointed by the President on the advice of the Prime Minister and Head of Government.

The High Commission promotes and protects Trinidad and Tobago’s national and foreign policy interests, particularly its foreign trade, investment and tourism interests throughout Canada. In this regard, the High Commission is directly responsible to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Port of Spain and through it, to the Government.

The High Commission also provides services on behalf of the Ministry of National Security (Immigration)and the Registrar General’s Department of the Ministry of Legal Affairs, through the provision of application forms and the issuance of visas, notarial (birth, marriage death etc.) certificates/services and statutory documents. Substantive immigration matters such as the issuance of Passports and restoration of citizenship are handled at the Consulate General in Toronto.

The High Commission also responds to general information enquiries about Trinidad and Tobago, or refers such enquiries to the relevant Ministry or agency in Trinidad and Tobago when more detailed information is required.
