I am a Indian passport holder and have booked a single ticket from New Delhi to Port of Spain via Amsterdam and Curaçao. From New Delhi to Curaçao, I am traveling by KLM and from Curaçao to Port of Spain, by Insel air. Although I booked single ticket, The KLM authorities told me that I will receive my luggage in Curaçao and I will have to get boarding pass for Curaçao to Port of Spain in Curaçao. I don't have any visa for Curaçao. Do I need to pass through immigration for getting my luggage for recheck in or it will be automatically transferred to Insel Air at Curaçao?

  • @Phil the traveler in the other question required a uniform short-stay Schengen visa to retrieve and re-check luggage in Amsterdam, and that visa exempted the traveler from needing a visa for Curaçao. This traveler does not need a uniform short-stay Schengen visa in Amsterdam, so the answer to the other question is not applicable in this case.

You always need to clear immigration to pick up luggage.

So yes, you will need a visa for Curacao, which you apply for at the Dutch embassy.
