The purpose of the PSA Act is to formalize the relationship between the State of Suriname and Persons of Surinamese Origin anywhere in the world. Although many people have the right to PSA status, accepting the status is free.

The PSA status can be activated via the PSA website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Business and International Cooperation. However, it is important to mention that the PSA does not come into effect automatically and cannot be imposed on persons. It has become necessary for the implementation of the PSA Act that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs International Business and International Cooperation creates and issues PSA documents pursuant to Article 2 paragraph 2 of the PSA Act.
