Once your parents are citizens then you can become one easy. You just have to walk with your parent's birth certificates and they adjust your passport to show youre a citizen. Doh worry, the country setup to make life easy for you if you born outside.
Comments: I see that this thread is pretty old but I really need to revive it. I'm trying to get dual citizenship for U.S. & T&T. I'm U.S. Born (and I'm now age 36) but my father is from Trini. He's also now a U.S. Citizen with Trini residence (I believe he had to give up his citizenship when he became a U.S. Citizen). We are pretty much estranged so I can get no help from him in this matter. I went to the T&T consulate in NY with my father's birth certificate, my birth certificate (w/father's name on it), my I.D., passport photos, application, & money order. The consulate general tells me that he can't do anything for me unless I can bring him my father's U.S. I.D. And can prove when my father became a citizen of the U.S. Because that is what will determine whether I am entitled to Trini citizenship or not. That if my father gave up his Trini citizenship before I was born, I am no longer entitled to Trini citizenship! I could really use some help with this. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer. P.S. - What's interesting is that my little sister (age 20) says that her dual citizenship was automatic! She didn't have to go through any of this.

Don, if you are a citizen of Trinidad, your son from Grenada can become a Trinidadian through you (and yes, keep also his Grenadian citizenship). It is a simple process, usually a stamp in his passport.
