Hidden Disabilities

Hidden Disabilities

Not all disabilities are visible; some are not immediately obvious such as autism, chronic pain, dementia, and anxiety. Hidden disabilities include learning difficulties, mental health problems as well as mobility, speech, visual or hearing deficiency. The Hidden Disability Sunflower Lanyard enables someone with a hidden disability to choose to be visible so that support, assistance or just a little more time may be given when moving through the airport.

Wearing a sunflower lanyard and badge at the Curaçao International Airport, enables staff to recognize that you have a hidden disability and that you may require additional help, time or assistance when moving through our airport, but please note that this lanyard does not give you fast track access through security or passport control automatically. 

If you would like to identify your hidden disability, you can request a Hidden Disabilities Sunflower lanyard through one of the registered foundations/associations listed here. 

If you have additional questions or your foundation is not mentioned here, please contact us via [email protected].

If you require other special assistance at the airport, please contact your airline or travel agent directly, at least 48 hours prior to travel.

In case you are foundation or association representing clients with a hidden disability and you are interested in joining the Sunflower Scheme Program at the Airport, please send an email to [email protected].
