People, my personal trade license was approved 28-Feb-2019 and I submitted my car registration application at Sando Licensing. I was told that Min of Trade has to send validation of my personal trade license details to Licensing Office Caroni and then coordinate this back to Sando. My vehicle cannot get registered without this. Does anyone know someone who can assist at Min. of Trade to ensure details are sent to Caroni? I am currently renting a vehicle and this incurring a huge cost.

So the information that I was given is that Caroni only has physical batches till 26th Feb, and that a Caroni Licensing courier goes into Min. of Trade on a weekly basis to get the next batch of confirmation of validation of personal trade licenses.
Is that BS?
My vehicle registration request went into Sando since 19th March.

Once the ship docks in Port of Spain how long does it take before the car could be taken off the port?

2-3 Days, depends on how many other RoRo vessels at the time disembarking vehicles.
Even got next day late evening once.

Isn't SBT Japan the main one which nearly every Trini uses?

SBT have gotten a lot of bad reviews I think most dealers go into the auctions directly and make there purchases

Try ICM Japan, Sayuri International, Autocom Japan. They are trusted up to an extent. But make sure and check the auction sheets and verify the mileage. That's importers and dealers biggest scam. I check the lot numbers also in sold auctions to see if the Japanese suppliers tampered with the auction sheets. I have seen this already so I take no chances. Unfortunately 90% of people get scammed.

Can anyone give an update on the latest import duty and taxes for importing vehicles into Trinidad.

Seems like they changed so much in 2016 and 2017 that I can't seem to find the most up to date information anywhere

Do you mind sharing your personal experiences importing with SBT?

Ummm no real issues. They go radio silent between when you send your money and shipping. I guess to avoid buyers remorse, but as soon as it's on the water they start back talking to you. They also give the option of altering the invoice down for customs if you desire. Regardless of what price the site says you can always haggle for a discount. Recently I've been seeing people giving negative reviews so maybe the standard has dropped, also people have off expectations as well, a dealer may do light bodywork to a roro when it arrives. When you buy it it will have whatever dings etc
