3. Aruba Visitors Insurance

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government of Aruba must ensure that all visitors (including children) 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.

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.
