January 2011 Bonaire welcomes the US Dollar as their Official Currency

May 28, 2010

Commencing January 2011, the US Dollar will be the official currency of the BES Islands. The governing officials overseeing the monetary exchange is the DNB, Der Nederlandsche Bank, the Dutch National Bank, is the entity responsible to transition and oversee the conversion from the guilder to the dollar. Times of change.

On 10-10-10 The BES islands become municipalities of Holland. Bonaire is the B, Statia the E and Saba the S. They will no longer be part of the Netherland Antilles but be referred to as the Dutch Caribbean. The Netherland Antilles will include Sint Maarten and Curacao. One question I have is, when I go to Curacao or Sint Maarten may I enter the Resident line still?

What do you think of this new plan?
