A Bermudian company is processing all credit card transactions for the Immigration Division of Trinidad & Tobago’s new e-Payment Portal.

First Atlantic Commerce, a global online payment solutions provider, is a longstanding partner of the Immigration Division of Trinidad & Tobago’s Ministry of National Security.

The division recently launched its e-Payment Portal for e-visa and student permit applications.

This solution, First Atlantic said, brings the power and convenience of online applications and payments to its customers with additional capabilities to allow payments to be made through an online mechanism (using a credit card).

It also allows for the acknowledgement of the visa application in real time. It provides the ability to track the application status and allows the online issuance of e-visas and e-student permits.

First Atlantic said: “Launching the platform with these two services marks the beginning of the division's tangible commitment to ensuring greater ease of doing business for the citizens of Trinidad & Tobago, its diaspora and global customers.

“The new e-Payment Portal took effect in March 2024 to allow persons applying for student permits and visas for entry into Trinidad & Tobago.”

FAC team lead, Customer Success, Vivian Curtis commended the development: “We are excited to be working with Trinidad & Tobago’s Immigration Division. This development combines the Immigration Division’s leadership in digitalisation and commerce with our payments expertise and goal of driving fintech.”

John Outridge, the chief executive officer of the Trinidad & Tobago International Financial Centre, further stated: “TTIFC applauds the Immigration Division on the launch of their e-portal. This innovative solution aligns perfectly with TTIFC's vision of fostering a technologically advanced and efficient business environment. We are confident this initiative will enhance the customer experience and contribute to a more streamlined immigration process."

FAC, the Bermudian-based company and a premier Caribbean and Central American payment gateway, has provided the Trinidad & Tobago government department a feature-rich payment gateway that delivers customised and flexible online credit and debit card processing to merchants across the Caribbean and Central America.

The company also provides risk-mitigation solutions, including 3DS2 services, and Kount, a one-stop fraud control system, to its merchants, banks and other gateways. FAC processes all credit and debit card transactions for the new platform.
