    Pastry chef positions?

    Hello all!
    Lifelong visitor of Aruba (la Quinta!) and as I get older and recognize priorities, I realize that sometime in the future I would love to live in Aruba. Right now I'm thinking of 6 months or less, so my question is does anyone know if employers would be willing to hire based upon that time constraint? Unless work papers would nullify the 6 month maximum? Any words of wisdom would be appreciated! Thanks so much!

    Can't help but think that there could be some seasonal opportunities during 'high season'. Welcome to the forum.

    it is very difficult for someone who is not aruban or dutch to obtain working papers.
    i doubt employers would be able and/or willing to hire for 6 mos. But, who knows..make some inquiries.

    DIMAS would be a non issue as you'd be 6 mos or less.

    Thanks for your help, especially regarding DIMAS! I know of one start up cupcake shop on the island, perhaps low key businesses would be more willing than those in the high rise.

    I don't know if I'd be so certain that DIMAS isn't an issue. As an American tourist, I do not believe you're allowed to work on the island, so although the length of time isn't an issue, you would probably need an appropriate (work) visa. Of course, there may well be employers who are willing to "look the other way" and provide you with somewhat less than 100% legal employment...

    I would be very careful and also believe the less than 6 month stay will not assist in your being able to work. Last week one of the jewelery stores had retained the services of a retired NYC cop who is an expert in giving lie detector tests to come in for a few days to administer tests to employees. The police broke it up and also DIMAS got involved citing immigration/work permit violations. This person brought the equipment with them and was only to be there for a few days.

    You don't want to get thrown off the island
