    Thank you for this information.
    Is there a way that this notification can be done at least 6 months in advance?

    Dee, Normally, we would get much better advance notice, though I don't know that 6 months is likely. Generally, these trips to the smaller islands happen when the consulate gets an influx of inquiries. Also, these services are always available at the Consulate in Curacao.

    Hey KOB,
    Yes, if that's even possible. I'm doing my best to help people who have questions through bonairehelpdesk.com. Also, I am a (maybe the) consular warden for Bonaire.

    Default Consular Visit Cancelled

    The Consulate in Curacao has announced the cancellation of tomorrow’s trip due to lack of demand. As of yesterday morning, they had no appointment requests so it simply did make sense to make the trip. They will can schedule another trip in a few months--or sooner, if it appears there is more demand (which means they get calls from Bonaire about it). By they way Americans who sign up with the State Department's STEP (Smart Traveler Enrollment...) program will get notices of these services, and other announcements, directly from the Consulate.
