Sint Eustatius Netherlands Antilles Travel

The islands of the Netherlands Antilles offer unique travel experiences and are therefore a worthy destination. Among the islands and territories of the Dutch Caribbean there are a number of hidden gems where tourists can experience exciting adventures and relaxing excursions. Most good ones are in Sint Maarten, but it is vulnerable to hurricane damage and was hit hard by severe storms in 1995 and 1998 that severely affected its tourism sector.

On Bonaire and Curacao we use desalinated seawater for our drinking water and share the same water supply as the other islands of the Netherlands Antilles and the Caribbean.

You can apply for entry to Sint Eustatius, but must comply with the mandatory quarantine and quarantine facilities. Nationals who require a Caribbean visa and are in transit for more than 48 hours must apply for a visiting visa when visiting CuraASSao, St. Maarten or the Caribbean Netherlands. Other countries require you to obtain a visa valid for at least two years from the date of your arrival in the Netherlands Antilles before it is allowed. Visitors who wish to stay on the islands of Bonaire, Curacao or StMaarten or on other islands of our archipelago such as the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Barbados, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Puerto Rico and St. Vincent and the Grenadines must apply for a residence permit.

For a relaxing holiday on an uninhabited island, tourists should visit Sint Eustatius, also known by the locals as Statia or Statius and referred to as "Statius" or "Stratia." It is one of the Caribbean areas of the Netherlands, along with St. Maarten, St. Kitts and Nevis and St. Lucia.

The north of Saint Martin belongs to French Guadeloupe, and the islands of Saint Kitts and Nevis and Saint Lucia below belong to the United States of America. All are located in the Caribbean as part of the Netherlands, with the exception of Saint Maarten, which is located in the US Virgin Islands, and Saint Lucia.

The islands, which were first colonized by the French and the English in 1625, were initially called Nieuw Zeeland before being renamed Sint Eustatius and taken over by the Dutch in 1632. In 1636, the Dutch West Indian Company took control of the islands of St. Maarten, St. Kitts and Nevis, as well as St. Lucia and Bonaire, Saba and Sinterklaas, all of which became part of their own territory. SINT EUSTATius and Bonsai became independent territories under the Dutch East India Company (now the United States of America), and in 2016 Sints Maarten and Curacao became autonomous territories within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, while BONAire and Saba (and in some cases both) became parts of its own territory. The islands of S Inteas and St. Eusan (French Guadeloupe) and Santo Domingo (on the west coast of Saint Martin) were taken over by the Dutch West Indians Company.

In 1986, Sint Maarten, the Dutch part of the island of Saint Martin, was separated from the Netherlands Antilles and was given the status of a separate state within the Kingdom. In 2010, when the Dutch East India Company (now the United States of America) dissolved its territories, including the islands of Aruba (1986) and Sints Maarten, Curacao, St. Kitts and Nevis, Bonaire and Saba became autonomous territories within a Kingdom of the Netherlands. In 2016, SINT EUSTATius and Bonsai and the other islands in the West Indies became autonomous territory of a "Kingdom of the Netherlands," along with the islands of BONAire, Sabas and St. Lucia.
