Becoming A Citizen Of Trinidad And Tobago

What are the benefits of becoming a citizen of Trinidad and Tobago? I've been a resident here for awhile and was told that I should become a citizen but I don't know if there is really a benefit, so what are the benefits?

You will enjoy ALL the benefits of a citizen by birth except becoming the President (I am not sure about Prime Minister).

Tobago Trinidad Citizen Becoming

Thank you for the answer but that's my question... What are the benefits of becoming a citizen? I am asking this because I am a resident already so is it necessary to become a citizen?

Tobago Trinidad Citizen Becoming

Off the top of my head if you are a citizen of Trinidad and Tobago then you can:

* Vote
* Be elected for parliament
* Have access to government housing
* Access to government programs where you must be a citizen
* You become a member of the Commonwealth

You cease to be defined as a "Foreigner" And some employers have a policy of hiring locals over foreigners so it obviously enhances your employment opportunities. Secondly, as per the previous post, you can access Government loans as a citizen only and not as a foreigner.

In Trinidad, preference is given to locals, then CARICOM nationals if they have a Skills Certificate and then nationals of the British Commonwealth and native speakers of English. Other foreigners come due to the presence of foreign owned businesses.

As a non-Commonwealth national, it would therefore definitely be in your favour if you plan to stay here indefinitely.

Becoming Citizen Trinidad Tobago

I think it takes 10 years to become a citizen of Trinidad and Tobago but you can become a resident in 3 years. Things might have changed though.
