WILLEMSTAD - The Ministry of Public Health (GMN) has collected over 119 thousand guilders in overdue fees. It concerns overdue payments for a nuisance permit. If someone wants to open a company in Curaçao, in some cases a nuisance permit must also be issued. This is necessary for companies with environmentally harmful activities, such as a hotel, restaurant, laundry, construction and demolition company.
The ministry has now made up for the backlogs from 2017. Companies pay 200 guilders per year for a nuisance permit. Without a nuisance permit, companies are not allowed to carry out activities that harm the environment.
