On July 17th 2021, after over 15 months of being closed (restricted), the Trinidad and Tobago Government reopened the Trinidad borders for international travel. Entry into the country is only permitted via entry from the Piarco International Airport, Trinidad. The confidence for such a decision came as a result of the ongoing mass vaccination and availability of COVID-19 vaccines along with a slight decrease in positive COVID-19 cases. The combination of a growing number of vaccinated persons with the reduced infection rate, provides hope for the return of commerce and socialisation and with it, the need for international travel. If you are planning to travel for work, business or leisure, here are the top 3 things that you need to know. (Trinidad Travel Requirements Border)

Individuals are only considered to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 if 14 days have passed since they received the full dosage of a World Health Organisation approved vaccine, i.e. 14 days after they have received of a second dose in a 2-dose series or 14 days after they have received a single-dose vaccine.
