What is a visa for Curaçao?

As of October 2019, all travelers from the EU are required to apply for a digital authorization/visa for Curaçao before departure. Before it was possible to fill in an Embarkation and Disembarkation (ED card) on the plane to Curaçao. Nowadays this is no longer possible and you are obliged to apply for a Digital Immigration Card prior to your trip. This digital visa is an online authorization letter that allows you to enter the borders of Curaçao. Do you need a Curaçao visa? You can apply for the Curaçao e-visa quickly and easily online via this website.

  • You can apply for your own visa from € 19.95 euro per person.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Curaçao visa validity

The Curaçao e-visa gives you the opportunity to stay in Curaçao for up to 90 days for touristic, private or business purposes. Children must also be in possession of their own e-visa for Curaçao. With this ED-card you are allowed to stay in Curaçao for a maximum of 180 executive days per calendar year.

You can apply for your Curaçao visa within 1 year before your departure date. This gives you the opportunity to arrange the visa well in advance, so that you can travel worry free.

Frequent travelers

Are you going to Curaçao often and would you like to apply for a visa again via Traveldocs? That’s no problem! If you can provide us with a copy of your already obtained Digital Immigration Card, we can fully adjust it for you with the correct travel and whereabouts details. You do not have to send the standard documents and data again. Therefore this makes any future visa applications easy, safe and quick to apply!

Types of visa Curaçao

Tourist travelers must be in possession of a Digital Immigration Card before departure. Upon arrival in Curaçao, these travelers aged 18 and older can use the so-called eGates at the airport. If you are traveling with children under the age of 18, you must report to a customs officer upon arrival.

Business travelers can also use the Digital Immigraton Card. You can easily request this here. With this visa you can also use the eGates upon arrival at the airport.


You do not need to apply for a visa in advance if you transfer without a new check-in in Curaçao. For instance, when traveling to another country without leaving the transit area, you do not need to apply for a visa Curacao in advance. Is your transit time longer than 24 hours or do you have to check-in again upon arrival in Curacao? Then you must have obtained a visa Curacao and/or ED-card before boarding your plane.

Apply quick, easy and fully online within 5 minutes for your Curacao ED-card!

You can apply for the Digital Immigration Card entirely online via our website.
Unlike the regular visa for Curacao we do not need to physically receive any documents, such as your passport. As a result you can often expect the visa in the mailbox within 2 working days!

Do you want to do an internship in Curaçao or are you going to work in Curaçao and do you have questions about a visa or residence permit? Then please contact us in advance, since you’d most likely need a regular visa in order to enter Curacao as well as the ED-card. Our visa experts are happy to assist you with both applications.


The Digital Immigration Card for Curaçao is, as the name suggests, an online immigration form, which you must apply for before departure. It is therefore NOT the Visitor visa / Schengen visa for the Netherlands or Curaçao. All travelers with Curaçao as their point of arrival must have the Digital Immigration Card for Curaçao before departure. When placing the application on our website, we assume that the applicant has taken sufficient notice and has any additional documents for Curaçao.

EU passport holders (including NL and BE) do not need a Curaçao visa, because Curaçao is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. You must have the Digi Card, which is required for the immigration service.

Foreign passport holders (who may or may not reside in the Netherlands or another country) should find out for themselves before departure whether they also need a visa for Curaçao in addition to the Digital Immigration Card. This visa must be applied for in person at the authorities of the embassy or consulate of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. If you have a foreign passport, but you live in one of the (visa) exempt countries listed below, such as the Netherlands, and you have a valid Schengen visa, you can use it to travel to Curaçao. In all other cases you need to apply for a Caribbean visa (short or long stay) a few weeks before departure.

In addition, the immigration service may also ask for other additional documents, such as a hotel confirmation or proof of sufficient financial means, in addition to proof of residence (such as a residence permit or a valid return visa). This is at all times up to the immigration officer handling your entry.
