St.Martin/Maarten/When you go to St.Martin/Maarten do you have to speak Dutch or English?
When you go to St.Martin/Maarten do you have to speak Dutch or English? I speak fluent Standard Dutch (same type used in Belgium and the Netherlands) and English. What is the entry requirement for St.Martin/Maarten? I have a passport of Belgium and the United States. Are the authorities in St.Martin/Maarten required to give you official paperwork in Dutch if you request this?
English is spoken on both the French & Dutch sides of the island.French is also spoken on the French side.
I would imagine that some Dutch is spoken on the Dutch side, but since I don't speak that language myself, I have no experience with it.
A valid passport is required for entry, with passport expiration at least 6 months in the future.
I'm not sure what official paperwork in Dutch that you are asking about.
Hope this helps you!
