3. Exemptions from COVID-19 Testing
In its ongoing efforts to make travel to one happy island as convenient and safe as possible, and as part of the Traveler Health Requirements, the Aruban government is happy to announce that, some U.S. residents who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 may be exempt from the COVID-19 testing requirement for entry to Aruba.

4. Proof of Vaccination Requirements
The Aruban government will still require that the proof of vaccination meet the requirements as part of the Aruba online Embarkation/Disembarkation (ED Card) process. While the program is being introduced for eligible travelers, other travelers who may not be eligible will still need to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to entry to Aruba.
For more information and testing requirements visit the tourism board website.
Before returning to the USA effective immediately, the United States requires that all air passengers entering the country will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding their flight as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many of our travel suppliers have made arrangements for on-site COVID-19 testing right at your hotel (view these travel supplier policies).
Reminder - if you do any COVID testing or seek any healthcare while abroad, please retain all receipts for insurance purposes.
