Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) have agreed on the implementation of a CARICOM travel card that will be issued to every CARICOM national except those on the Community’s watch list.
Mia Mottley, Deputy Prime Minister of BarbadosThis agreement came out of negotiations at the ongoing 28th CARICOM Heads of Government Summit being held in Barbados. According to Barbados’ Deputy Prime Minister Mia Motley, an implementation plan for the document will be put together and submitted to the Heads at the next inter-sessional meeting to be held in September. She pointed out that the card will virtually maintain the ‘single domestic space’ and holders will not need a passport, during inter-community travel.
