Work permit

Before you can work for a company in Curaçao, you must have been employed by means of a work permit. This means that the company in Curaçao needs a work permit before you can apply for a residence permit to work.

A work permit is therefore applied for on behalf of the company at the Vergunningloket in Curaçao. When this is approved, you as an employee can apply for a work permit.

Apply for a work permit

As indicated, it is important that the company where you will be working follows the correct procedure for applying for a work permit.

Prior to the application process, the employer must register the vacancy with the Ministry of Social Development, Labor and Welfare. Because this is a complicated process, but also a process that has a crucial sequence of actions to be taken, it is important that CuraBon is called in on time so that we can guide the process properly.

Applying for a work permit takes approximately 3 – 4 months, after which the permit can be applied for for you as an employee. This is is one work permit and also lasts about 4 – 5 months.

Is a work permit required?

If you have a nationality other than the Dutch or American nationality, the company where you will be working is obliged to have a work permit. There is no possibility to apply for a work permit for you without a work permit.

A company does not just get a work permit because the government wants to protect the local labor market. A work permit is therefore also often applied for when the position cannot be filled by local residents.
