The US Embassy says from Monday, December 16, its Port- of- Spain location will only accept the new $100TT polymer note for in-person cash payments for consular services, including passport and other services for U.S. citizens; non-immigrant visa reciprocity and petition-based application fees; and immigrant visa fees.
The Embassy says it will no longer accept the old $100TT note after December 13, 2019.
The U.S. Embassy is encouraging applicants to consider paying fees via credit card during the transition period to the new polymer notes.
The Embassy says its notice does not pertain to the payment of the $160 non-immigrant visa application fee, which must be paid at a Scotia Bank location prior to the visa interview. As a reminder, the U.S. Embassy does not accept online payments for this fee.
