Important Instructions

Bonaire is a Caribbean island located north of Venezuela. Politically speaking, Bonaire is a fully integrated special municipality in the Netherlands proper. As you may probably know, Bonaire is famous for its dive sports, but just like any other island in the Caribbean, it provides an ideal location for vacationing. Apart from diving, you can sunbathe, hike, boat, or go snorkeling and observe the superb marine life - but be careful not to disturb the coral reefs as they are very sensitive. Additionally, the island is known for its iguana and flamingo populations! What more could one ask for.

Before traveling to Bonaire, you need to make sure that you can get through border security: you may need a visa. Since Bonaire is a part of the Caribbean Netherlands, your visa needs to be issued by the Kingdom of the Netherlands. However, that may not be the case since many nationalities can travel to Bonaire without a visa if they do not plan to stay longer than 90 days.

To check whether you need a visa or not, the visa policy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands contains a list of visa-exempt nationalities where you can try to find your country of origin and its visa rules and regulations there. Or better yet, you can use iVisa’s Visa Checker. All you have to do is click on the Visa Checker button you see in the top right corner and fill in the boxes. You must select your nationality from the drag-down menu on the left, and on the right, you must choose Bonaire as your destination. In seconds you'll know if you need a visa or not. If you do, we at iVisa offer useful information such as a list of the nearest embassies where you can apply in-person in addition to their contact info.

If you apply for a visa for Bonaire, the document you receive grants you entry to the islands of Sint Eustatius and Saba as well. However, when you apply, you need to specify which island you wish to visit first.

At this time, iVisa does not process applications for Bonaire, but if that should change, we will be able to offer our fast, safe, and easy visa processing services. Until then, we still like helping travelers get their visas - our free support team is at your disposal 24/7 to answer any questions that may arise.

Keep in mind that before departure you must inquire about the visa requirements so you don't miss anything important. You can find a lot of information online, but we advise you to use it as a starting point or reference only. Therefore, we recommend that you contact the issuing authority and ask your specific questions there. They can give you the most legitimate answers. Meanwhile, what iVisa can tell you is that all travelers who take a trip to Bonaire must have a passport that does not expire for at least 6 months from the date of arrival in Bonaire.

We regret that we cannot help you any further with your visa application process, but we hope that the above information points you in the right direction.
