Guyana and Trinidad maintain tough travel policy for citizens of all Muslim countries banned by Trump

While the world was busy roasting US President Donald Trump for wanting to enforce a technical ban on nationals from seven predominantly Muslim countries, no one had seemed to notice that a handful of Caribbean countries, including Guyana, have similarly strengthened or continue to utilize tough existing laws that indirectly aim to deter nationals from the same group of Muslim nations from entering their countries.

The Guyana Guardian understands that while the visa entry requirement for these nationals to travel to Guyana and Trinidad are already tough, airline ticket bookings for that grouping of passengers on transatlantic flights, are subject to a silent security review by the United States, who can in turn direct the carrier to refuse to transport the passenger(s), even though they may be traveling to Guyana or Trinidad and Tobago.
