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
