How long will my possessions be on their way to Bonaire?

The ship takes about three to five weeks to sail from Rotterdam to the island. After this period, there is a short period of time for customs clearance, after which your shipment can be delivered to your home or picked up at the local warehouse. Our partner on the island will keep you informed about the status of your shipment at customs.

Tips for emigrating to Bonaire

Moving to Bonaire is a wonderful prospect. The beautiful Caribbean climate makes a nice change from the grey days in the Netherlands. Bonaire is a small island with few inhabitants, which makes it very relaxed. The island has white beaches with an azure blue sea and bays where you can (learn to) kite. There are a few steps to take before you can start enjoying the Caribbean life on Bonaire.
