During your preparation for your internship on Curaçao are you going against some cost that you must meet before you come to Curaçao.
For example, think of you airline ticket. As an intern on Curaçao you must be in possession of a return ticket when you arrive on Curaçao. The amount of a plane ticket varies per day. So pay attention when you book your ticket. Handy to view is our tips on “Book a flight to Curaçao“.
In addition, you will have to make a deposit to get your dorm room and rental car to book definitively. In Curaçao it is customary to pay one month's rent + deposit of one month's rent as a down payment.
If you want doing an internship on Curaçao, then you have a internship permit required. This internship permit is actually called “Legal Statement“, abbreviated to the VRW, which you then apply for with the reason that you are going to do an internship in Curaçao.
Unfortunately, the Curaçao Admissions Committee a fee for this. The amount of this fee for a Legal Statement depends on the purpose of the application. In your case we are talking about “Internship” -> internship permit and the costs for this are ANG 525 / approximately € 262.50.
At the All-in-1 Internship Package from CuraStage it is included that we will apply for this permit for you. This way you do not run the risk that your application will be rejected and that you will have to pay the mandatory fees again.
Of course you can also choose to apply for your permit yourself. Then choose it Compiling Internship Package. Here you can indicate which services you do or do not wish to use.
How save you at your expense for your internship in Curaçao?
First of all, we recommend working with an established party such as ours, or a comparable party, that actually is located on Curaçao. This way you can be sure that all information is correct and that you do not pay unnecessary costs or waste time.
in addition groceries, make no mistake about how much you can save on your monthly groceries. A very popular store, Albert Heijn (also called Van der Tweel) on Curaçao, costs a fortune and really caters to the tourist on the island.
Instead, we recommend that you go to, for example, “Center” (this is the name of the supermarket) to go. This supermarket has two branches; in Mahaai and Piscadera, and has everything you would find in a Dutch supermarket. The prices are much cheaper than at the more well-known supermarkets.
then sign up without obligation at CuraStage! After we have received your registration, we will schedule a free Skype conversation. Here you can ask us all your questions.
Only then do you decide whether you want to look with us for a nice & suitable internship vacancy in Curaçao.
Jan Thiel, Mambo Beach, etc. all great fun places on Curaçao where you will certainly meet your fellow interns at the bar or on a sunbed at the stand.
The only, but really the only one ;-), disadvantage is that the prices in these places are quite high. That is why it is certainly interesting to go to public beaches with, for example, your housemates. Armed with a well-stocked cool box, a music box, sun belt and you have a great day. But then a lot cheaper than having to buy the drink and not be allowed to take it with you.
A nice tip! You can also BBQ on many public beaches. Can you picture it already? Delicious with your feet in the sand, a cold drink in your hand and the smell of a delicious piece of meat on the BBQ. Internship on Curaçao is not so annoying after all!
On the Fun Curaçao website you can easily see on which beaches you can BBQ.
