First days in the country

When entering the country, it is important that you express your need to seek asylum to immigration officials in Trinidad and Tobago as soon as possible. You will then be referred to the Refugee Unit and Living Water Community to begin your asylum application. It is important that you visit Living Water Community shortly after your arrival to apply for asylum.

Applying for asylum is free. No one should request any form of payment to process your application.

Ensure that you have the contact information of the authorities in Trinidad and Tobago that can assist you to claim asylum.
