Financial Difficulties Abroad

Trinidad and Tobago nationals traveling abroad sometimes experience financial difficulties due to unforeseen circumstances. Such situations can usually be resolved easily and quickly by transferring money from Trinidad and Tobago through commercial money transfer agencies. Trinidad and Tobago Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates can provide information on local money transfer agencies.


If these channels are not available, the Trinidad and Tobago Mission can contact relatives or friends in Trinidad and Tobago to ask them to send funds either directly or through the Ministry of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs. 

The Ministry of Foreign and CARICOM Affairs is unable, under any circumstances, to give loans or to pay expenses incurred by Trinidad and Tobago nationals abroad.
