Immigration officers to engage in training aimed at facilitating CARICOM’s free-movement agenda

Immigration officials will be engaged in two half-day training exercises on the movement of CARICOM nationals and the facilitation of travel.

The online training exercise starts today, February 22, and is being facilitated by The CARICOM Secretariat.  There will be about 25 participants in the training session.

Officials say the training will focus on the legal basis for the movement of skilled nationals; the CARICOM Complaints Procedure; and the role of Immigration Departments in facilitating the free movement of people.

E. P. Chet Greene, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Trade, is expected to deliver opening remarks, while Joseph Cox, an official with the CARICOM Secretariat, will deliver a brief statement.
