Schengen Visa-Free Regime
The short-stay Visa Waiver Agreement signed on 28 May 2015 in Brussels, between the European Union and Trinidad and Tobago, Saint Lucia, Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Dominica allows the citizens of these countries to visit the Schengen area for a short stay of up to 90 days without requiring a visa, as long as the purpose of the visit is not to carry out a paid activity.  The Agreement is provisionally applied from the date of the signature, in order to allow citizens to benefit from the visa-free travel as soon as possible.
Citizens of these countries can now travel visa free to the following European Countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.  In addition, travellers will be able to travel visa free to the three European micro-states, Monaco, San Marino, and Vatican City. 
Citizens can visit the Schengen Area once or multiple times, provided that the total stay does not exceed 90 days within a 6-month period (180-days). All the visa waived traveller needs to do is to present a valid passport at the point of entry into one of the "Schengen" countries.
The Agreement covers all categories of travellers, such as ordinary, diplomatic, service/official and special passport holders, except for the category of persons travelling for the purpose of paid activities.  In this case, each country of destination in Europe remains free to impose the visa requirement in accordance with its applicable legislation.
