Is a person traveling to Tobago considered a musafir?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwa-TT.com
Question:

السلام عليكم و رحمة ﷲ
Is a person traveling to Tobago for holidays considered a musafir?

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

If a person undertakes a journey of 48 Shar‘ī
miles (55 english miles/88.8
kilometres
) he will be a Musafir (traveller)
and will perform Qasr Salaah (2 rakaats for Zuhr, Asr, Isha). As long as he intends
to remain in the place of travel less than 15 days he is considered a Musafir.

Generally a person travelling from Trinidad to
Tobago will cover more than 88 km, hence he will be regarded as a Musafir.

One who intends to travel more than 88 km will
become a Musafir from the time he exits the boundaries of his locality.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
