Itīs been a long since I visited Bonaire, but I still would like to live there but donīt know how to do it, I guess since Bonaire became a full part of Holland, the process for foreigners to get residence permit might be more complicated, am I right?

PD:Maybe most of bonaire talkers donīt remember me, my name is Warauno and I live in Venezuela, Iīm venezuelan..

Anyway please if somebody knows about someone who is hiring foreigners for a non skilled job please let me know, I would really appreciate it...Iīm really sick of Venezuela, I have to say that I am not a chavista (Chávez supporter) at all, even heīs dead now, his people will continue to make life harder here and threaten venezuelan opposition, sorry for talking about politics, I know this is not a forum for that, but thatīs the reason why I want to leave Venezuela foerever...

I understand your plight Warauno, but usually for a non-antillean to get a job on Bonaire, you must have a skill that a Bonairean doesn't. And then a company here must prove they tried to fill the job locally before you'd even be considered. Please take advantage of any education or job opportunities available to you for learning supervising/people/management skills, any specialty, etc.--this will improve your chances of finding employment here. It's already a great plus that you're bi-lingual.

Hi Ruth!...thank you so much for your help and suggestions, I appreciate it a lot...Wow it really seems very tricky all that process to get a residence permit in Bonaire, real complicated. I am currently studying citotechnology here but Iīm just getting started and sometimes I just feel like giving everything up due to all the problems this country have but unfortunately I will have to be either patient enough to finish my studies or just look out for another destiny...thatīs sad, I know such is life.

Thanks again Ruth!, hope youīre enjoying your life in beautiful Bonaire :)

Hi Ruth,

Do you mean to say that all those Peruvians in the building industry possess skills that people on Bonaire don't have?

No, but there's always the possibility that there are not always enough Bonaireans to do construction jobs. When we built KFC, the contractor was Bonairean, and his crew was a mix of Bonaireans and South Americans.

Warauno - if you are Venezuelan, have you looked into employment at BOPEC?

1. Do you really think the Venezuelan Consulate in Bonaire reads this forum?

2. If so, how will they know you are the infamous Warauno when they meet you? More than 29 million people live in Venezuela. Many are glad Chavez is dead, and many would like to find work outside of the country.

Hahaha!, well I have to say that probably you are right, maybe Iīm just a little bit paranoid, also I didnīt realize this new forum donīt show my real name, the old one did :)...so itīs a good idea, Iīm gonna give it a try and will call the Consulate, maybe they have any idea, or even better, any vacancy :)

Thank you buddy!
