Foreign Outposts on Trinidad

Embassies and consulates can provide help to travelers in foreign countries

 

Foreign countries can be lonely places if you encounter trouble during your travels. Whether you are the victim of a crime or you become trapped by a natural disaster or civil unrest, your local embassy and consulate can provide assistance. Visitors to Trinidad and Tobago should have the contact information for their local embassy or consulate in case assistance from a home country is required.

Travelers on the islands who fall victim to a crime should contact the local law enforcement authorities as well as their local embassy or consulate. Agents of the embassy or consulate can help secure medical or financial aid that may be needed as a result of the crime. If you are imprisoned on Trinidad and Tobago, always contact your local embassy or consular agent. While representatives and agents from your embassy do not act as lawyers, they can help you obtain legal representation and educate you about the judicial system on Trinidad and Tobago. They will also monitor your condition to ensure humane treatment and nutrition, and they can be in contact with authorities and relatives who are either on the islands or back in your home country.

Hurricanes, earthquakes, flooding, and mudslides can all be issues on Trinidad and Tobago, and citizens who are caught in the country during these times should contact their local embassy or consulate for advice. Purchasing travel insurance from travel agents can help cover the expense of an emergency trip out of the country. Travelers should also seek assistance of their local representatives in times of civil unrest.

The Bureau of Consular Affairs in the United States provides an article on tips for safe travel abroad. Travelers from the United States to foreign countries should also register their trip abroad through the State Department. This allows the State Department to have a list of the names of citizens traveling in a country if a natural disaster or other emergency may occur.
