    Welcome to the forum Karin

    There are many hoops to jump through to gain residency

    Visit the Aruba immigration site for the overwhelming
    details! https://www.dimasaruba.aw/en/applicants/living/

    Welcome.

    In which part of Germany do you live? We will probably be in Germany again next spring/summer as our former exchange student is getting married.

    What type of info are you looking for at this time?

    Right now we live between Frankfurt and Cologne, close to a city called Limburg. Where are you going to? Right now, we are looking for a house in Aruba (see extra post).

    Hi Karin and welcome. Currently you can spend 6 months in a calendar year on the island...I 'believe' that is the number for all tourists but it may be different for a citizen of Germany. Applying for 'residency papers' has many hoops including you will need to show you have sufficient income. You will need additional papers in order to get a work permit here. The immigration office 'Dimas' appears to be barely functioning. This is a quick overview. I suggest you move forward with caution. Use the website listed above and seek the guidance of a professional. Good Luck!

    Not sure where the wedding will be. He is from Bonn and she is from Koblenz and they are living and working in Frankfurt. We did a Rhine River cruise a few years ago and loved the area.

    As far as finding a home in Aruba, you will need to find a good relator. We own a condo. We we searched, we looked at all a lot of different realtors and set up appointments with different ones.
