Admit it, would you like to find a property in Aruba, in the middle of the Caribbean, to spend your life quietly, away from the chaos?
If you already see yourself in a hammock drinking from a coconut, you're in the right place!
We have created a mini guide (small but essential!) to give you all the advice you need to complete your transfer to a corner of paradise.
So... let's get started!
Let's start with a few geographical notions
Aruba is a tiny island in the north of the Venezuelan coast, with a warm, tropical climate and, hear you, dry all year round!
This is because it is located in an area outside the nerve center often touched by hurricanes.
So, don't worry, you will always stay with your feet immersed in the crystal clear waters!
Official language: Dutch. Strange, isn't it? But don't despair. English and Spanish are also widely spoken, and remember that this coexistence of different languages is due to the colonization of the Netherlands (the island is still autonomous in administrative terms).
Cost of living: the level of unemployment is very low and everyone can easily find work. for being a 'Caribbean island, enjoys a high standard of living and, of course, if you love the sea and mild climate, there is no better place to move!
As a range of costs we identify a lower range (clothing, education, personal care and health, culture) and a higher (transport, restaurants, housing).
The economy of Aruba is one of the strongest in the Caribbean, but despite this it does not offer a wide range of choice. But if you have good linguistic flexibility, you won't encounter any problems at all.
The tourism and hospitality industry are the sectors that most increase the GDP of Aruba, but also in the field of health and information technology are in great demand many professionals.
There is no shortage of requests for jobs typically seasonal, as in the construction sector: carpenters, welders are just a few examples.
We now come instead to the documents needed to enter this island.
Here is a reminder:
a bank statement certifying the ability to support without working (at least initially)
documents proving your residence for the last 10 years
a self-certification presenting a valid reason for moving to Aruba
a clean record for at least the last two months
a valid passport, three passport photos and a clear medical history certifying your vaccinations against smallpox
Being a very small island, there are no more or less convenient areas to buy a property.
What we recommend is that you consider from the outset whether these prerequisites are within your reach and whether or not it is worth moving to this little paradise.
Now you know everything you need to know about this wonderful island!
