    restart in Aruba

    Hi, I am new in the forum orig. form germany and in the moment residing in Hollywood Florida. I am a boxing coach and my wife is teacher. We wanted to open a gym in Florida, but after everything worked perfect now it seems to be impossobel getting a lasting permit ot reside.
    Financially we have some backup and really search a new place for a life without doubting removing, in a safe warm area. That´s why I start getting curious about Aruba and would be interested for any clear info: how much cash you have to proof for getting a residence?
    Anybody knows about olympic boxing in aruba?? (would love to volunteer) ?
    Teachers needed? (my wife is fluent in english, german, portuguese and some spanish)-but as said -it is not a must...
    thanks so far----

    If you want residency with a work permit? Plan it taking as long or longer than what it did with the States. We finally got the approval for all of this and it has taken 1 1/2 years. Which from what we hear is fast. Normally it takes up to 3 years.

    If your wife teaches the work permit would be easy, if you wanted to work you would need to apply for a work permit. And from what I understand they are cutting back on work permits and residency.

    As a non-Aruban, can I establish a company in Aruba?

    Non-Arubans usually need a local partner who owns 60% of the shares to start a business in Aruba, some exceptions are applicable.
    Aruban in this case means someone born in Aruba with the Dutch nationality or someone who is considered local. People who are considered local in this case mean:
    • a Dutch national, born outside Aruba but who has been residing at least five years in Aruba and is in the possession of an “admission permit for an indefinite period of time” or “a statement of admission by Rechtswege”;
    • a Dutch national of whom at least one parent was born in Aruba, no matter how long he/she has been residing in Aruba;
    • a Dutch national who has been married to an Aruban for at least one year and has been residing in Aruba for at least three years;
    • a Dutch national who is married to an Aruban for at least three years and has been residing in Aruba for at least one year;
    • a local person can also be someone, not born in Aruba and not having the Dutch nationality but who has been residing in Aruba for ten years or more, and is in the possession of an admission “admission permit for an indefinite period of time” or “a statement of admission by operation of the law” (van rechtswege);
    • or someone not born in Aruba and not having the Dutch nationality but who has been married to an Aruban for at least five years and has been residing in Aruba for at least three years.

    thanks for the response-I just read it today..
    the link is talking more about dutch people. Also I read as far as I understand the Dimas webpage and find different answers, also on the chamber of commerce page. That´s why I am looking for reliable actual info about that.
    Permanent residence is the absolute main point-work permit not necessarily. We just want to get some safety and not doubting year by year about a new law etc (fe. Bahamas just changed the PR from 150.000$ invest to 500.000$!).
    So I am glad for any help with that!!

    new start in Aruba

    Hello there!
    My name is Cristian, obviously, first timer on this forum. I am a romanian (that is a citizen of Romania, for those who don't know ) but i am living in Spain for about a couple of years, with my fiance, Ana. We are planning to get married, soon, but with this crisis and all, it's kind of difficult right now. So, one night, worrying, as usual, about what are we gonna do, Aruba popped up. Why not trying to find a better life there? I have to be honest, my first thought was about the Dominican Republic, don't ask why, but after that, looking at the pictures of Aruba, and looking up infos about it, we decided to give it a shot.

    Looks like a great place to start over, to raise a family, kids, the whole thing. Even though the paper work and the restrictions are a little too mutch for us, we still want to try and get there. Aruba could be the home for us in the future.

    The only problem is that, searching the internet, we only found info about the lifestyle from the travel specialised pages, so we have no clue about how the average people live there. How much is an apartment (if there are any) to rent per month, if there are jobs, or how is the unemployment over there, how difficult is to FIND a job, in the first place... you know, the whole set of questions that every man trying to move asks.

    We've already read the legal info from DIMAS, but we're confident that, someday, we can find our way into Aruba.

    So, bottom line, any other information will be more than welcome.

    Thank you very much, C&A

    I wish there were a part to be optimistic about But, nontheless, being welcomed here makes me feel a little closer to my goal.

    i know lots of native arubans. many of them wish they did not live on aruba. it is a small island. there is little place to "get away to".
    if they want to go anywhere, it is only a 30 minute drive. lots of arubans long to be in holland or the usa. most aruba kids leave aruba for college.

    someday, i hope that you can get to aruba for a vacation.
    get the feel of it and see how small the island is.

    my husband and i retired in summer of 2008.
    we had kicked around the idea of retiring to aruba.
    but, almost immediately we knew we could not deal with living on a small island forever.
    we chose florida instead.......and the city where we live is huge and it is a 35 minute trip from one end of the city to the other.
    somedays i do wish i was in aruba full time
