Dual Citizenship In Trinidad & Tobago

Dual Citizenship in Trinidad & Tobago

Do you think Dual Citizenship in Trinidad & Tobago is a good or bad thing? Some argue that allowing a person to hold citizenship of two countries may lead to a lack of patriotism or avoidance of taxes.

Tobago and Trinidad Citizenship Dual

Dual citizenship may be a potential tax problem in the near future depending on the property amount! My father is in a facility where he was paying for his medications and care and as soon as he needed to be hospitalized, medications and care went up 1000% or more. His medications before hospitalization were $100-200 USD per month but when he went into the hospital and began using the hospital formulary, medication jumped to $5000-6000 per month.

We applied for aid due to his age (82) and then we found out he had to spend down all his assets before he could even be considerd.
TRANSLATION: Where ever he had assets, they had to be sold, to pay for any outstanding debt and only then would paperwork be initiated!

Many countries see dual citizenship as a way to attract skilled people and retain them into a cohesive model for change but smaller countries like T&T may not understand that concept so it may not be that palatable.

Understand what concept? The concept of dual citizenship or assets in other places? I can tell you that T&T does allow dual citizenship and on all tax forms you do have to declare foreign assets, bank accounts, etc.

I'm not sure if I understand your question. If you were born in Trinidad then you are a citizen of Trinidad & Tobago. Do you have a birth certificate of your birth in Trinidad?

Not necessarily. I heard there was a time in Canada that in order for a Trinidadian to get Canadian citizenship they were asked to abandon the Trini one (many, many years ago of course).

If you were born here or your parents are citizens then you are a citizen. Trinidad & Tobago allows dual citizenship, but the other countries do not so you will have to check with the, to see if they will want you to give up your Trini roots. I know the US doesn't allow dual citizenship.
