Trinidad Cancels All Entry Permits

Download PDF for this date

The Trinidad Government has invalidated all immigration permits outstanding, thus creating difficulties for German Jews who are en route to the British West Indian island or who have booked passage there, according to information received from Port-of-Spain by the National-Coordinating Committee for Jewish refugees and Emigrants from Germany. Applications for new immigration permits will be considered on their merits, the information said, but only a limited number of German Jews will be admitted. The action followed a resolution of Trinidad’s executive council and Governor banning all refugee immigration after Jan. 15.
