a VirtualTourist member from Queenstown
Ok, so I booked my flight and am leaving in 10 days, but was super slack about checking whether I need a visa, and just found that I do for T&T. I have to do a mad dash and get everything sent to London for processing (I'm in Sweden now), but what they are asking for is going to be difficult, as in two references of people who know me well in T&T. Just for a tourist visa? Have I downloaded the worng visa application? Has anyone from NZ been to T&T and gone through the process? I also found on the official T&T site regarding immigration (http://www.immigration.gov.tt) that I may simply arrive with a visa waiver filled out, which is not the information I got when I called the high commission in London. Another person told me that I amy be able to arrive without the visa and get one on arrival, but that the airline here in Sweden may not let me on the plane without a proper visa...Can anyone clarify what i need to do? I am in a desperate hurry.
Thanks a million in advance,
This is what the TIM states (the Travel Information Manual of IATA, which all the airlines use):
TRINIDAD & TOBAGO (TT)
Passport (must be valid for period of stay) required.
Visa required, obtained prior to arrival.
However, it is possible for a Visa Waiver to be issued on
arrival. Fee: TTD 50.-.
- hold documents for onward/return journey; and
- hold return or through ticket (or sufficient funds to
purchase ticket, in which case amount due to be deposited
- have a fixed address during stay (hotel etc.).
