TRINIDAD and Tobago birth certificates are being illegally sold to non-nationals.

The scam, which allegedly involves several employees attached to the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs Registrar General’s Department, has been ongoing for years, with Nigerians, Venezuelans, Indians and people of other nationalities benefiting from it.

Due to the turmoil in Venezuela, there has been an increase in sales, with certificates costing from $3,500 ­upwards.

The cost of a T&T birth certificate to nationals is $25.
