Hotline to Report TT Nationals Stranded in St Maarten & BVI

The Government of Trinidad and Tobago under the co-ordination of the Ministry of Foreign and Caricom Affairs and the Ministry of National Security has been working to evacuate Trinidad and Tobago nationals from St Maarten and the British Virgin Islands.

The Government in conjunction with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda and our National Helicopter Services Limited has made arrangements to attempt to air lift our nationals who have provided us with their information from St Maarten today. We have been working very closely with the Government of Antigua and Barbuda.

It is envisaged that we will airlift our identified nationals from St Maarten to Antigua during the course of today.

An official request is being made to the British Government for assistance with respect to the evacuation of our nationals in the B.V.I.

Further information will be provided as it becomes available. The Ministry of Foreign and Caricom Affairs hotline is 868-715-2154, and any information with respect to our nationals in these jurisdictions should be provided to us forthwith as we are implementing plans.
