Permit collection will take place at the ministry’s Enforcement Unit  at Henry Street, Port of Spain, between 8 am and 2 pm.

A release sent on February 29 says individuals are required to bring their previously issued registration card along with a valid form of identification and registrants will be notified through official channels when further approvals are granted.
