Of course you have to arrange many things for your internship on Curaçao, but most of it is fun to arrange! However, there are also things that are super important to have properly arranged. Below we have listed a few things that can help you on your way.

Deregister in the Netherlands

When you stay longer If you are staying on Curaçao for eight months, you are obliged to deregister from the population register. You can arrange this at your municipality. Most municipalities require that you personally come by to request this document. It is therefore convenient that you call your municipality where you are registered and then ask what you should bring etc. 

You must deregister at least five days before you leave. The municipality then also passes on your deregistration to the tax authorities. This always happens automatically, so you don't have to arrange anything yourself. When you are back in the Netherlands, it is important that you naturally register with the municipality again!

Your health insurance

You are not automatically insured for healthcare costs on Curaçao. Ask your health care provider which (additional) insurance you need to take out. Contact your own health insurer. He can tell you what to take into account. This way you prevent unpleasant surprises.

Student finance during your internship

It is often possible to keep your student finance if you do an internship on Curaçao. If you want to keep your student finance during your internship on Curaçao, you must remain registered as a full-time student in a Dutch study program. Your internship must be part of this training. For more information about this, visit the website from the DUO.

Verklaring van rechtswege

Om stage te lopen op Curaçao moet je een tijdelijke werkvergunning, een zogenoemde Verklaring van Rechtswege aanvragen bij het Kabinet van de gevolmachtigde Minister van Curaçao. Onze ervaring is dat jouw stageplaats dit voor je kan regelen of in ieder geval kan helpen met het aanvragen van deze verklaring van rechtswege. Meer informatie over de verklaring van rechtswege kun je here you can find.
