COVID-19 and Traveling to Aruba

Aruba’s diligent reopening will happen in phases, monitored closely by the Government of Aruba and the Department of Public Health. Europe is permitted to enter Aruba starting July 1, 2020. The US will be permitted to enter Aruba starting July 10, 2020. Dates for Latin America will announce soon.
All visitors will be required to complete the online Embarkation/Disembarkation card process and be approved in order to be permitted entry to Aruba. The new ED card process will be available online as of June 26, 2020, and the requirements of the ED card will include five components. Learn about the components required by visiting Aruba.com

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government of Aruba must ensure that all visitors are properly insured. The Aruba Visitors Insurance is a mandatory insurance that helps protect visitors against incurred medical and non-medical expenses if testing positive for COVID-19 during their stay in Aruba. 

The cost of the Aruba Visitors Insurance starts at $15 per day per visitor and decreases depending on the length of stay. Children up to and including age 14 are insured for free, but a flat administration fee of $10 is applicable. For visitors older than age 76, the coverage starts at $21 per day and also decreases depending on the length of stay. To calculate your premium, please click on the following link.  

It is important that the government of Aruba have testing to confirm that travelers are negative for coronavirus. For this reason, a protocol has been put in place that allows the following two options for testing:

Option 1: Acquire PCR testing results no more than 72 hours before traveling to Aruba. The test needs to be a COVID-19 test, obtained from a nasal/oral specimen through PCR testing performed by a certified lab, and the results need to be uploaded as part of the ED card process. The very latest a test result can be uploaded is 12 hours prior to departure. 

Option 2: If you cannot acquire a PCR test before your departure you will be required to take a PCR test when you arrive at the Aruba airport. Travelers can wait to arrive in Aruba and receive a PCR test at the airport. The costs for the test will be the responsibility of the traveler and must be paid for in advance as part of the online Embarkation/Disembarkation card process. The test results will take 6-8 hours to confirm but guests should be prepare to spend up to 24 hours in quarantine in their hotel room(patio/balcony space included). 

For more information please visit Aruba.com

If you were not able to acquire a PCR test prior to your departure you will need to take one at the Aruba airport when you arrive. While you wait for your results, you will be required to quarantine in your hotel room for up to 24 hours. For guests who are for guest quarantining for 24-hours, your room includes a fully stocked mini-bar with water, soft drinks, beer and wine plus room service with full menu. Wifi will be available so you will be able to check the status of your results via email.
While you will be required to wear a mask during your flight and at the airport, you wont be required to wear one at the resort. The government of Aruba strongly encourage visitors to have their masks handy for situations where social distancing proves difficult.

If the test is positive, the confirmed case will remain in isolation at one of the designated properties until recovered. Throughout the isolation process, medical follow-up will be conducted. Once the patient recovers and tests negative, he/she can resume vacation or depart the destination.
