A very warm welcome to the High Commission’s Website. Here you would find information about the High Commission and the people working here, what we do and what consular services we could offer.
The Mission in Port of Spain is also accredited to Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname. This means that the High Commissioner and/or other staff members need to travel to those countries to maintain our bilateral relations, and to look for opportunities that could assist in further enhancing the warm and friendly relations that so happily already exist.
Our focus is not only on bilateral political relations but on expanding economic diplomacy, and people-to-people relations. The Mission also has the task of interacting with and observing the workings of the Caribbean Economic Commission (CARICOM).

For our citizens working and living in the countries mentioned, these pages contain information about consular matters including among others, passports, registration of births, certification of documents and so forth. The High Commission is your link to the Department of Home Affairs in South Africa.
For citizens of Trinidad and Tobago and other accredited countries, we provide several links to assist with research and further gathering of information. The links would expose the reader to a large and most diverse economy offering ever-increasing business and investment opportunities.

Some interesting economic facts on South Africa are:

South Africa is a fast growing and a popular leisure destination for many, the birth place of the magnificent Big Five, offering the visitor an unforgettable wildlife adventure and a hospitable cultural and culinary experience. The OR TAMBO International Airport in Johannesburg is home to Africa’s busiest airport and serves as Southern Africa’s air transportation hub. Close to 20 million travellers pass through its portals annually. 
South Africa is also the base of Africa’s number one cricket team and through this beautiful game we have made many friends here in the Caribbean – home of the famous West Indies cricket team.

From country information, economic opportunities and passport and visa issues, we trust that you will find the links informative and useful and we hope that you will be inspired to visit our beautiful country, where you can still leave ordinary behind. 
Please feel free to call or to visit. We will do our best to assist and to guide.
