Law Entry and Deportation starts at zero


KRALENDIJK — On 10-10-’10, the clock for entry and deportation started at zero now that the islands Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba became public bodies of the Netherlands on that date.

As from that date, the National-regulation Entry and Deportation (LTU) terminates, and the Law Entry and Deportation (WTU) becomes effective.

The Dutch citizens outside of Bonaire, St. Eustatius or Saba have free entry up to maximum six months per year, but will have to apply for a Declaration by Right if they wish to work and live on Bonaire, St. Eustatius or Saba. That also applies for the European Dutch citizens who originate from Curaçao, St. Maarten and Aruba. Dutch citizens or their parents who were born on Bonaire, St. Eustatius or Saba do not fall under that law nor do the Dutch citizens who were living on Bonaire, St. Eustatius or Saba since 10-10-2009 (one year before 10-10-’10) and were registered in the register of population. Therefore, everyone having registered after 10-10-2009 must apply for a residence permit.
From now on, foreigners (tourists) may stay on Bonaire, St. Eustatius or Saba for maximum three months per period of six months. If they require an entry visa, the maximum term on their visa is applicable.
