Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB) is pleased to announce that it has upgraded its system of collecting visitor information data. The new system is already in place. The Bonaire Non Resident Card (BNRC) is similar to the arrival data cards used by other Caribbean destinations.

“We are certain that this new system will produce accurate new statistics which will allow us to better understand our visitors’ needs, thus enhancing the quality of our destination and improving our marketing efforts,” explains Ethsel Pieternella, Director, Tourism Corporation Bonaire. “We at TCB are looking forward to having this improved data available to us as well as to the island’s tourism stakeholders.”

Several of the airlines with service to Bonaire International Airport (BIA) are now distributing the BNRC cards to their passengers on board each aircraft. All non-residents arriving at Bonaire International Airport are requested to fill in the BNRC card before landing.  The completed cards are then deposited in the specially marked boxes in front of the immigration booths or in the arrival hall next to the baggage claim area. Cards are then collected by TCB for processing.    Thank you for your support.20140110_151417
