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.

For information on how to obtain a work permit please see http://www.immigration.gov.tt/applicationloader.asp?app=articles&id=692
