Visa Requirements & ED Card

All visitors to Curaçao are required to fill in an ED Card online. This can be done here: https://edcardcuracao.com/

For general info regarding entry requirements, please check out https://www.curacao.com/en/directory/plan/know-you-go/entry-requirements/

Travel Around Curaçao

The best way to travel around Curaçao is by car. Some hotels offer area shuttles. Taxis can be expensive, and are unmetered. It's best to agree on a fare before you enter the cab. Fares from Hato International Airport (CUR) to Willemstad range from about US$40 to US$50.

Weather and Currency

For a complete overview of practical information please see: https://www.curacao.com/en/
For current weather and prognosis: www.meteo.cw

The local currency is the Antillean guilder (ANG), for the best change rates and locations we recommend you to check www.centralbank.cw. Credit cards are generally accepted and so are US Dollars, at an exchange rate of ANG 1.75. Some stores will return your exchange in guilders. There is an ATM at the UoC Campus and ATM’s are readily available elsewhere, supporting many major cards (e.g. Mastercard, Visa) and payment systems (e.g. Maestro, Cirrus, Cashnet). Check your bank whether it requires you to adjust international settings for your card to enable using ATM’s in Curaçao.

Refreshments and Lunch

For your and our convenience a special lunch menu will be prepared for the conference participants by our campus chef on all conference days (Mon-Thursday). Please buy your lunch in advance ($45); tickets available on site will be limited. Alternative lunch options are limited and are all located outside campus at a 10-15 minutes walk.
