    Need some help/advice

    Hi all.

    I went to Aruba for my first time March 2020 and fell in love with the island. My girlfriend at the time and I had the idea to buy a property somewhere in the south with the plan being to have part of our property as rental units. A combination business/retirement. I was thinking more Central America until the trip. We did Curacao first but Aruba was it for me.

    I have read that if I buy property in Aruba I can stay for 6 months then have to return to Canada for 6 months. If I'm buying property and starting a business in Aruba I don't want it to be a 6 month operation. Is there an exception to the 6 month rule if I start a business?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

    My guess is that you will need to apply for a work permit under the “under construction” startup category.

    Contact Solaica at

    We were residents in Aruba for a year and a half and she dealt with Dimas for us to get our resident status. We were retired so maybe a little different, but if I am not mistaken she deals with business people too. Good luck

    Second vote for Solaica! She knows the system and will be very helpful. If she can't address your issues she will suggest another reliable person.
