Young: New online exemption system to begin on Monday


    A new online system, set up by the National Security Ministry, to apply for exemptions to enter and leave T&T will go live on Monday.

    This was announced by Minister Stuart Young at a media conference today where he also revealed that, as of yesterday, there are 19,941 exemption applications.

    He said the current system of emailing was getting backlogged due to duplicate requests and believes the new system will help with managing exemptions.

    Mr Young said persons who have applied for exemptions and did not get approval can reapply online from Monday.

    Meanwhile, he revealed that corporate companies seeking exemptions can utilize two new emails that will be introduced.

    The entry and exit of persons into and out of T&T is being managed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
