If you want to work and reside in Aruba on a paid basis for more than 6 months, you need a long term Work Visa/Permit. This requires a labour market review. It is required that you work for only one Aruban employer in a specified job title. You must apply for this labour market test at the DPL. After receiving a statement from DPL, you can apply to DIMAS for your residence permit application. DIMAS then tests your admission requirements.

The processing time for work visa may take from 6-12 weeks from the application day.

You can bring your spouse and kids with you.
