Advertisement placed via \"Job Rapido\". You apply and they come back to you with a offer of employement. Not to long after that some more info is given, but all lead towards you paying money for VISAS ect.
Luckily I could not believe a well organized company like Exxon Mobil would have such poor employment arrangements. Herewith the mail received on my further requests:-

ADDRESS: Rode Kruislaan 14,
Paramaribo, Suriname.
Telphone: +597 899 7401


I am Barrister Hendrick Godfried Immigration Consultant Mandated by ExxonMobil Suriname Limited to assist you on the immigration procedures.

There are three stages involved in the employment of expatriates in Suriname
1, Request for cable visa
2, Application for subject to regulation visa (STR VISA)
3, Regularizations of stay.

Firstly before I proceed with the application to the Suriname Embassy in your location to give you a STR VISA, I have to first of all get your Expatriate Quota Approval Letter and Cable Visa from the Suriname Immigration service here in Suriname.

You are to send me the following required documents so that I can make an application for you with the Suriname Immigration Service for the approval of your Resident/worker\'s Permit, Cable Visa (which is a per-requisite for STR Visa) and Expatriate Quota.

1. Proof of vaccination against yellow fever.
2. Expatriate traveler’s insurance policy certificate (ETIP)
3. A scanned copy of your international passport.

Once the Suriname Immigration Service has approved the request for cable visa, it will be forwarded to the Suriname Embassy in your country that will issue you a S.T.R VISA. The regularization of stay is done here in Suriname on your arrival.

THE EXPATRIATE TRAVELERS INSURANCE POLICY (ETIP) COVER, is a mandatory requirement by the Suriname Immigration Service this is because the policy is a prove that you are medically fit, to work in Suriname and also it is a per-requisite to renew your resident/worker\'s permit every year.
The ETIP have benefits to the tune of $4,950,000.00(FOUR MILLION NINE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND US DOLLARS) and the duration is one year, it should include benefits for loss of luggage, repatriations, medical,permanent disability and death etc.

The preferred insurance company by the Suriname Immigration Service is SURINAME INSURANCE PLC.

On confirmation from the Suriname Immigration Service for of the approval of your cable visa, expatriate quota resident/worker\'s permit, it will be forwarded to the Suriname Embassy in your location you will be invited from the Suriname Embassy in your location for a brief interview for your S.T.R visa. These are the vital procedures which you must adhere to because it is in accordance to the\" Expatriate Statutory Laws of the Republic of Suriname.
