Curaçao (Kòrsou in the national language) is an Island near the coast of Venezuela and is a country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Altough it is seen by many as a tropical paradise, the nation has its issues. In order to provide a good image of the country, LACIGS, in cooperation with the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB), provides relevant information as well as visual impressions on its website.
Entering the country is relatively easy as many nationalities do not need to arrange a visa for their visit to Curaçao. If you are planning to visit the country, please take a look at the entry requirements. Although a Visa for many nationalities is not necessary, an Embarcation Card (ED-card) is required to enter Curaçao. Where some airlines provide their passengers with an ED-card during their flight, others do not. On the website of the CTB, an online version of the ED-card is available.
Vaccinations are not required when entering Curaçao. Only when you are planning to visit the country shortly after visiting a destination where Yellow Fever is common, the government requires proof of a Yellow Fever vaccination. The website of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) can be consulted before your visit.
