What you should know about relocating to Curaçao

The decision to pack up and relocate to our wonderful island Curaçao is a big one, but worth it! However, before making any decisions you should consciously think about why you want to move, and what to expect in this process.

Choosing to work for BearingPoint Caribbean in Curaçao means choosing to work for one of the most progressive, dynamic, and young hearted companies on the island, where (personal) development is key. Not only do you choose for this great place to work, grow, and develop yourself professionally, but you will also choose for a new life filled with new experiences and unprecedented island adventures.

Once you have made up your mind to embark on this relocating journey, things might seem overwhelming at first, due to all the arrangements that need to be done. But we are here to help you. We have done this many times before and we will guide you throughout the entire process.

Permit application

To live and work on Curaçao (as a Dutch passport holder), the first administrative task you need to complete is a request for your ‘Verklaring van Rechtswege’. The process to acquire this document is done completely online and will take approximately 6 weeks to complete. Some of the main important documents you will need to start up this procedure are:

Copy of a valid passport

Copy of the birth certificate (not older than 6 months)

Certificate of Good Conduct (not older than 3 months)

Once this process has started you can now focus on further planning your move to Curaçao. You might want to think about what stuff you want to take with you. Should you choose to pack up a container and move your entire furnishing, we can help you with the right contacts to make your move as smooth as possible.

Ready for Curaçao!

We will also facilitate with the booking of your flight, transport, and accommodation. Once you have arrived, we will welcome you and help you find your way during the first couple of weeks. You will be assigned a buddy to assist you with any questions or concerns you might have, work- or non-work related. He or she is there to help you settle comfortably on the island. Your future colleagues will gladly show you the hip and happening places on the island as well.

On your first day at our office you will get a guided tour and you will be introduced to your new colleagues. The first couple of days of your onboarding will be a combination of meeting new people, getting your personal administration in order, like for example opening a local bank account, filling out some necessary paperwork provided to you by HR, finding your way in and out of the office, and of course getting to know the content and context of your new job.

All of this may seem like a lot to process but rest assured that we will be there for you to take you through every step of this journey from the get-go. Believe us when we say, taking this leap into a new adventure will be worth your while!
