The National Policy to Address Refugee and Asylum Matters in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago was adopted by Cabinet in June 2014. The Policy provides for a phased approach to develop a national refugee status determination (RSD) mechanism and to govern the transition of responsibilities for RSD procedures from UNHCR to the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. Within the framework of the Policy, the Refugee Unit of the Immigration Division was created and Standard Operating Procedures and legislation are being drafted.

The Refugee Unit works in close coordination with UNHCR and LWC to ensure that asylum-seekers and refugees are also registered with the Government, facilitates local integration in accordance with the current legislative framework, when applicable, liaises with other authorities to confirm the asylum-seeker or refugee status, and raises awareness about the situation of refugees and asylum-seekers in Trinidad and Tobago.
