Upon arrival in Curaçao, you must have: (1) a U.S. passport valid for the duration of your stay; (2) a completed Embarkation and Disembarkation Card (ED-Card); (3) a return or onward ticket; and (4) if requested, proof of sufficient funds to cover accommodations and food during your stay. You can complete the ED-Card on the airplane en route to Curaçao or in advance by using ED-Card Online. U.S. citizens are allowed to stay in Curaçao without a visa or permit for a maximum consecutive period of six months each calendar year. If you want to stay longer than 180 days, or if you want to work, you must apply for a residence permit. If you have already stayed in Curaçao six months and want to reenter the same year, you must apply for a “declaration of admission” upon arrival.
