    Hi All!

    We're taking the plunge and want to come down in the next few months. We have both been to Aruba before and yearn to return. We will be staying at least a year so have to deal with residency and medical insurance. Anyone have advice on the best medical insurance if you are a resident? Thanks!

    Welcome to the aruba.com community forum.
    I am moving this to “moving to aruba”

    residency in aruba is not very easy to obtain.

    Welcome and good luck with the residency piece. As Andrea said unless you are ultra wealthy or bring a job/business that is needed on the island, they do not grant full-time residency often.
    June 8th - can't get here quick enough!

    sorry jay..I did not mean to imply that at all.
    I know some pretty wealthy folks that took a little less than 3 years to gt their residency.
    it takes a lot of hoop jumping

    this is what I said "residency in aruba is not very easy to obtain."
    I dont want folks to think it is impossible if they do not have "$ or a business"

    I do often wonder how long the wait time is from application completion to being accepted?

    Residency isn't easy. If you own property you can stay 180 days if you are not a resident.
