Foreign nationals, unless exempt by treaty or other agreement, require a Business Visa to conduct business activities in Curacao. First-time Business Visas are generally issued for a single entry and a maximum consecutive stay of 30 days. Subsequent visa applications may result in the issuance of a multiple-entry visa.
 
​Regardless of the visa validity, visa holders must limit their stay in Curacao to 90 days within a one-year period. Business Visa holders may not apply for an extension of stay in Curacao.
 
Foreign nationals seeking to work in Curacao require a Work Permit and Residence Permit, issued for six months or one year. ​Work Permits are issued by Curacao's​ Labour Department and Residence Permits are issued by Curacao's Immigration Department. Foreign nationals may extend their permits in country.​
 
U.S. passport holders are eligible to apply for an indefinite work and residence permit called an Admission by Right permit (same as that offered to Dutch nationals​ born abroad​) which allows holders to work for any employer in Curacao.  ​
