Entry for tourist purposes does not require a visa, except for nationals of most former Eastern bloc countries, China, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, North Korea, Libya, Cambodia and Vietnam. Tourist entry is for 14 days, and another 14 days on local application, except for Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg, the UK, the USA, Spain and a number of South American, African and other countries, for whom it is 90 days (and another 90 days on local application).

Visitors requiring a visa must apply for it at least one month before departure. Travellers must also have proof of sufficient funds to support their stay on the island. Customs officials may not always ask to see proof of funds, but it is best to have this information in case the situation occurs.

Visas can be obtained from Dutch embassies around the world. In all cases of tourist entry a return or onward ticket is required.
