Employers in Trinidad and Tobago are always in search of
qualified and experienced employees to grow their organizations. A
foreign national who secures employment in Trinidad and Tobago is
required to obtain a work permit from the Ministry of National
Security before taking up the employment offer. Exceptions are
foreign nationals from the Caribbean Community and who are holders
of a Certificate of Recognition of Caribbean Community Skills
Qualification and certified to work within the Caribbean Community (CARICOM)
region under the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) and
foreign nationals who are Residents of Trinidad and Tobago.
Each work permit is issued to a particular
person for a specified period of time and for attachment to a
particular company or institution, as described in the permit. Work
permits are only issued to those who possess skills or expertise not
available in Trinidad and Tobago.
