ominican Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit wants to revive the Single Domestic Space, which allowed citizens of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to travel freely between member states.

Skerrit, who is also the chairman of CARICOM, made the plea for the travel policy in his address at yesterday’s opening of the 45th Regular meeting of the CARICOM Heads of Government in Port of Spain.

“What is really preventing us from reviving the Single Domestic Space that once allowed our citizens to traverse freely across our Region? We have already tried and tested the Advanced Passenger Information System (APIS), which allows Immigration and Security personnel in each of our countries, full access to the details of every passenger boarding an aircraft or ferry. The APIS system also makes a nonsense of the continued use of ED forms.
