Difference between a 'Permit' and 'Declaration of Law'

Difference between a 'Permit' and 'Declaration of Law'

If you are considering working or interning in Curaçao, there are some important steps you should follow. If you have Dutch or American nationality, you have the advantage that you can stay on Curaçao as a “tourist” for up to six months a year to enjoy the island.

However, if you want to work or do an internship during that six-month period, it is essential to apply for the “Declaration of Law”. Although people often speak of an “internship permit” or a “work permit,” these terms actually refer to the same document, but with a different purpose of residence application for Curaçao. 

If you have a different nationality, you must indeed apply for a “Permit for Curaçao” and visa. 

If you plan to continue working in Curaçao for more than eight months, there is more to do than just apply for the “Declaration of Law”. In this case you must also change your residence status. This is because as a Dutch citizen you are not allowed to stay abroad for more than eight months at a time. So this means that you must deregister in the Netherlands and officially register in Curaçao.
