New leadership at Embassy Port of Spain

Ambassador John Estrada and Deputy Chief of Mission John McIntyre

January 20, 2017 is the final day of Ambassador John L Estrada’s tenure as U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Ambassador Estrada will be missed and we at the U.S. Embassy thank him for everything he has done in service to the United States as well as the people of Trinidad and Tobago.

John W. McIntyre will assume duties as Chargé d’Affaires. Like Ambassador Estrada, John has ties to Trinidad and Tobago. His first tour in the U.S. Foreign Service was in Trinidad and Tobago. John and the U.S. Embassy will continue, complete, and sustain the many excellent programs and policies that were begun under Ambassador Estrada’s leadership as well as putting into effect the new policies of President Trump and his administration.

Dexter Payne will assume the duties as acting Deputy Chief of Mission.
