Aruba further eases entry requirements for visitors

ORANJESTAD — Aruba is further easing entry requirements for all visitors.

Starting today, Feb. 3, 2022, Aruba will allow for the option between taking an antigen test one day prior or a PCR test up to a maximum of three days prior to traveling to Aruba, or the option to travel with a digitally verifiable QR code proof of COVID-19 booster vaccination.

The government of Aruba specifies that complete vaccination status includes a booster shot administered at least seven days before travel. Proof must be uploaded as part of Aruba’s Embarkation/Debarkation Card process no earlier than three days before arrival.

Visitors between the ages of 12 and 17 can enter Aruba with a completed primary series with no booster.

Visitors 12 and older, who have tested positive using a molecular Covid-19 test by nasopharyngeal swab between 10 days and 12 weeks prior to travel date to Aruba, and do not show any symptoms, will be exempt from the requirement of providing a negative COVID-19 test result for entry to Aruba.

“Without question, the global pandemic has forced tremendous change to the way Aruba has operated these last two years, from day-to-day business to the way visitors travel and enjoy their time on the One happy island,” says Ronella Croes, CEO of Aruba Tourism Authority. “However, with notable changes recently signaling a less severe disease progression, we have taken proactive steps for Aruba’s Path Forward to create a better environment for travel and tourism without jeopardizing our commitment to health and safety.”
