I have a question: Someone not resident in Trinidad, can he open bank account? I read yes for personal. Can he still receive his salary in it or savings for retirement purpose?

Expat ArticlesArticle Summary: Expats in Trinidad & Tobago love the family-focused Trinis, the laid-back island culture and the beautiful beaches. That being said, many expats find dealing with bureaucracy a challenge, the pace of life frustrating and the cost of housing, food and cars much higher than expected. (Continue)

Hello All, I am new to commenting here, but I have a couple things I would like to add. I'm not an expat, but living here married to a Trini. I'm applying for residency, and applying for my wife's Visa, so we can travel together when we choose, and have the least restrictions (and headaches) as possible. I'll agree with comments posted about the traffic, higher prices for items such as food, furniture, etc. And yes, although dealing with the Bureaucracy here can be very frustrating, it's not much different than in the US. When was the last time you've been to the DMV? When people criticize crime rates and areas, you're going to get that anywhere in the world. You can be safe 24/7 by using what we all have, but it seems 50% or more people refuse to: COMMON SENSE! I lived in a very racist Brooklyn, NY neighborhood! (BTW, I'm white, not black) I was called everything but a white man, but if I were to defend myself I WAS THE RACIST ONE! I filed a racist profiling case against me with the NYPD and the Attorney General's Office in Oct '13. It was never resolved or followed up by either office! (A security guard confronted me after leaving a grocery store (FOODTOWN in BED-STUY) saying he wanted to search me because I was seen stealing something. My friend wasn't asked to be searched: She's black and was carrying a handbag big enough to hold a watermelon and chicken.) When you want to talk crime, watch the crime reports in Brooklyn, NY. Particularly, Bed-Stuy. Guns, killings, drugs etc. Enjoy TT and use your common sense about things.

Look up the Facebook group Housekeepers and Drivers in Trinidad (I think it is called) and make a post there as to what you are looking for specifically.

Hello, I have got a job offer for private hospital in tobago at a monthly salary of TT$ 16k. Can someone guide me how much would be the expected expenditures on accommodation for 1 BHK apartment, grocery, food,transportation,utilities,marketing, etc per month? How much I would be able to save per month after monthly expenses? I would be moving over there along with my wife, I am currently living in India. With regards, Raj
OhChuts replied most recently with:
Hi Raj, are you sure you know where (in which city) your job offer is? The topic heading mentions San Fernando, then your message says Tobago and over in Trip Advisor you say the job is in Diego Martin. These are three different places.

A reader commented on the Expat Report Moving to St Augustine, Trinidad & Tobago
What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?
I would say definitely start early. Trinidad is a laid back place and they are not in a rush to get anything done here. Check out place well in advance and send emails to the schools every week for your kids. (Continue)
