Franco: “I haven’t heard anything else about traveling with sedula (I.D.)”
WILLEMSTAD – The Parliament of Curaçao has not heard anything else about the proposition to let the Dutch Kingdom citizens travel with their sedula (I.D.) in the Kingdom. In other words, arrive at the airport, buy a ticket, use the I.D. to travel within the Kingdom. “It was a proposition, but apparently it stayed like that, just a proposition,” according to the President of Parliament, Marcolino Franco.
During the Kingdom Interparliamentary Conference in 2015 all delegates agreed on the use of sedulas while traveling within the Kingdom. This would definitely alleviate the situation at the airports and make tourism within the Kingdom a more attractive option. The delegates underlined the importance of this proposal citing economic opportunities in the Kingdom including the free movement of people and goods in the Caribbean part of the Kingdom.
Franco promised the people of Curaçao that this process will not take long, because all countries in the Kingdom have agreed on it.
