This is according to the US Embassy, in a short statement inviting the media to cover the announcement at 11.30 am.

The announcement will be made at the Buccoo Integrated Facility, Buccoo, Tobago.

The Embassy did not give any details on the new policy but says that the ambassador will make a brief statement.

We will bring you an update as soon as the announcement is made.


Previously purchased foreign-used cars not affected by new policy

The Ministry of Trade and Industry is today confirming that vehicles purchased and/or were en route to Trinidad and Tobago before Friday 15th January 2016, will not fall under the new policy governing the importation of foreign-used cars.

Last week the Government announced that it was changing its policy applicable to the age of vehicles being imported into this country. Vehicles must now be up to four years old and not six as previously applied.
