COVID-19 and Traveling to Aruba
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).
