Kosten voordat je op Curaçao komt

During your preparation for your internship in Curaçao are you going against some cost aanlopen die je dient te voldoen alvorens je naar Curaçao komt.

For example, think of you airline ticket. Als stagiaire op Curaçao dien je in het bezit te zijn een retourticket als je aankomt op Curaçao. De hoogte van een vliegticket varieert per dag. Let dus goed op wanneer jij je ticket boekt. Handig om te bekijken is onze tips over “Book a flight ticket to Curacao“. 

In addition, you will have to make a deposit to get your dorm room and rental car definitief te reserveren. Op Curaçao is het gebruikelijk om één maand huur + borg ter hoogte van één maand huur te betalen als aanbetaling.


What are the costs for the mandatory internship permit, the so-called Declaration of Law?

If you want doing an internship in Curaçao, then you have a internship permit nodig. Deze stagevergunning heet eigenlijk “Legal Statement“, afgekort de VRW,  die je dan aanvraagt met als reden dat je gaat stage lopen op Curaçao. 

Unfortunately, the toelatingscommissie van Curaçao hiervoor wel een vergoeding. De hoogte van deze vergoeding voor een Verklaring van Rechtswege, is afhankelijk van het doel van aanvraag. In jouw geval praten we over “Stage” -> stagevergunning en hiervoor bedragen de kosten éénmalig 525 ANG / ongeveer ? 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. 

Bespaartips Stage Curaçao

How save je op jouw kosten voor je stageperiode op Curaçao?

First of all, we recommend working with an established party such as ours, or a comparable party, that actually gevestigd is op 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, vergis je niet hoeveel je kunt besparen op jouw maandelijkse boodschappen. Een hele populaire winkel, Albert Heijn (ook wel Van der Tweel genoemd) op Curaçao, kost een vermogen en speelt ook echt in op de toerist op het eiland.

In plaats daarvan raden wij je aan om bijvoorbeeld naar “Centrum” (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.

Openbare plaatsen op Curaçao

Jan Thiel, Mambo Beach, etc. allemaal geweldige leuke plekken op Curaçao waar je jouw medestagiairs zeker zult tegen komen aan de bar of op een ligbedje aan het 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. 

Een leuke tip! Op veel openbare stranden mag je ook BBQ’en. Zie je het al voor je? Heelijk met je voetjes in het zand, koud drankje in je hand en de geur van een heerlijk stukje vlees op de BBQ. Stage op Curaçao is helemaal zo vervelend nog niet!  

On the website van Fun Curaçao kun je eenvoudig zien op welke stranden je mag BBQ’en.
