St. Maarten – The Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) will be having an Information Day at its Open House on February 24, and the public is invited to attend. People interested in learning more about the services the IND provides can visit the information day at its offices on the A.T. Illidge Road #8 (next to NAPA) between 7:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Staff will be available to answer questions and brochures will be on display and available to take-away as well.

“The IND is looking forward to meeting with those who require additional information during the information day for the 24 of February,” a release from the Department of Communication states.

IND is currently in the process of preparing itself to be able to offer additional and improved services required by country St. Maarten where it relates to admittance, border and territorial control. One of the main objectives was clearing the backlog in admittance requests. This was realized in 2011. At the moment, the legal period for processing permits is four months and the goal for this year is to reduce the processing time to two months.

IND’s three main areas when carrying out its work are transparency, consistency and customer friendly service. The department would also like to further improve and develop its relationship with external stakeholders such as embassies and other organizations that carry out similar responsibilities. IND will also be enhancing its current webpage on the government website www.sintmaartengov.org which the public can also utilize to receive information about services that the department provides.
