WebsiteU.S. Consulate General - Curaçao

The Consulate General of the United States of America Curaçao is located in Willemstad and serves Aruba, Curaçao, Sint Maarten (countries in the Kingdom of the Netherlands) as well as Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius (special municipalities of the Netherlands). The current consul general is Margaret Hawthorne. She assumed her duties as Principal Officer of the U.S. Consulate General in Curacao and U.S. Chief of Mission to the Dutch Caribbean in April 2016.

Although all islands are under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (and Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius are even part of the Netherlands proper), the U.S. Consulate General operates as its own mission, with the Consul General as the "Chief of Mission".[1] As such, the Consul General is not under the jurisdiction of the Ambassador to the Netherlands, and reports directly to the U.S. Department of State as do other chiefs of mission, who are ambassadors in charge of embassies.
