Curaçao’s Gaming Control Board (GCB) has opened the application process for operators wishing to receive new online gambling licences from the regulator.

From [1 September], operators can access licence application forms from the GCB’s new online portal, which also provides information on the licensing process. Downloads and guidance notes are also available. Submissions of completed applications will commence in November 2023.

The opening of the portal comes as Curaçao prepares for the National Ordinance for Games of Chance (LOK). This law will change how foreign online gambling operators are licensed in Curaçao.

The new licensing process does not reform the National Ordinance on Offshore Games of Hazard – Curaçao’s existing legislation – but adds to it.
