An existing arrangement on Curacao permits foreigners to stay longer on the island. The scheme is aimed at capital strong and investors who want to invest on the island. Someone who Ang. 500,000 can spend up to 3 years on the island. The temporary residence permit can be required up to 5 years if you invest more than Ang 750,000 here. People who invest more than 1.5 million can stay on Curacao unconditionally. Foreigners who are interested in this must have sufficient resources to provide for themselves.
