PHILIPSBURG -- As of Tuesday, April 14, 2020, police are working to bring down the backlog for travel waivers requested by residents. Most departments within KPSM are overwhelmed with calls from applicants concerning waiver requests. Businesses and residents seeking waivers must take into account that more than 400 requests are received daily and each takes time to process.

Due to the high volume of requests, it is impossible to process all received on the same day. All non-medical request should be filled in via the government of Sint Maarten website.

All medical request are handled by the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour VSA. Medical requests must be directed to email Malisha.Gumbs@sintmaartengov.orgĀ or Alissa.Rios@sintmaartengov.org.

Police reminds the public that if it is not absolutely necessary to be on the road, to refrain from requesting a wavier and remain indoors. The life you save can be yours or that of a family member by minimizing contact with others.
