Destination Entry Requirements

All visitors (including children) 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 includes five components. Do take note carefully, as there are important steps, and visitors will not be granted access to Aruba without completing the process. Note: You will need a valid passport and a valid email address that you have access to.

This will require travelers to provide basic personal and travel details such as: date of birth, passport information, length of stay, etc and require visitors to provide truthful, accurate answers to questions regarding their health. These questions will likely include:

Have you (or the person for whom you completed this form) been suspected of or diagnosed with pneumonia or the COVID-19 infection within the past 14 days?
Did you (or the person for whom you completed this form) have any of the following symptoms in the past 24 hours: fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, or loss of smell/taste?
Have you been in quarantine within the past 14 days?
Have you had any close contact (less than two meters) for more than 15 minutes with a probable or confirmed COVID-19-infected person within the past 14 days, including persons in quarantine or isolation?
Timing: This must be completed within 3 days hours and 4 hours prior to travel to Aruba.

To create a safe environment for you — our guest — and residents alike, it is important that we have testing to confirm that all travelers are negative for coronavirus.

All visitors, 15 years and older (this will change to "12 year and older" starting Aug. 25, 2021) , traveling to Aruba must take one Molecular COVID-19 test within 3 days to 4 hours prior to travel to Aruba.

The Aruba Health App offers passengers the opportunity to upload their test during the ED Card online registration process, and have it verified prior to departure to Aruba. Once approved, this will be registered on the Aruba Health App. Passengers with a pre-departure approved will be guided to the faster Pre-Approved Health Lane.

Find the testing option best suited to you on the COVID-19 Testing Requirements page.

Alternatively certain eligible travelers who meet the requirements may provide proof of vacinnation instead of testing. Read the complete details on this COVID-19 Vaccination for Travel page.

CommonPass users can make use of the Pre-Approved Health Lane. Read all about CommonPass here.

For details on the procedures for guests showing a positive COVID-19 test result while in Aruba, please reference the “Regulations when showing symptoms or testing positive for COVID-19 while in Aruba” section below.

As of August 22, 2021, the Government of Aruba has implemented several additional steps to protect our visitors and residents. These measures will be valid until September 1st, 2021.

o Curfew will be in effect from 10:00 pm until 5:00 am.
o All establishments are currently required to close by 9:00 pm at the latest. This is not applicable for establishments at hotel properties. Closing times per hotel may differ, please check with your hotel for more information.
o An alcohol ban is temporarily in effect in certain public places in Aruba. There are still plenty of places to enjoy an alcoholic beverage on the island. Hotel guests can order alcoholic beverages on the beach as long as they stay on the hotel property, and can bring their beverages to their palapa or beach chair as long as they order from the hotel bar. Alcoholic beverages can still be enjoyed at beach bars or restaurants not affiliated with a hotel, as long as patrons stay within the grounds of the establishment. It is currently prohibited to consume alcohol on any other beaches, parking lots, parks, or in any public place unless it is a licensed establishment.
o There are “restricted zones” that are off-limits between the hours of 10:00 pm and 6:00 am. Restricted zones include all beaches and public parking lots.
o No groups over four people are allowed to form in public spaces unless the group consists of a family from the same household. This includes gatherings on the beach.
o No gatherings or parties are allowed at private homes.
o Seating at restaurants is at a maximum of four per table (excluding children under the age of 12), both indoor and outdoor. Tables must be at least 1.5 m apart.
o All bars, rum shops, nightclubs and restaurants can serve at tables only.
o Wearing of masks is mandatory indoors

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.

For full details on the Aruba Visitors Insurance including coverage details, eligibility requirements, premium calculations by age, maximum length of coverage, FAQ’s and more, we encourage visitors to please click here. Some important highlights are listed below.

Visitors must purchase the Aruba Visitors Insurance in order to complete the ED card process.
Visitors can buy or use their own travel or health insurance to supplement the Aruba Visitors Insurance, but not to replace it.
Other insurances may cover you for some of the COVID-19-related expenses, but few plans offer comprehensive COVID-19 coverage in Aruba and also cover isolation costs outside of a hospital.
The premium is a reasonably priced, one-time flat fee, not a daily rate based on length of stay. Note, this premium reflects a reduction in the cost of insurance from prior months. For more details click here.
Subject to an overall limit of US$75,000, a visitor who tests positive for COVID-19 in Aruba, will have very few, if any, out-of-pocket expenses with the Aruba Visitors Insurance, as the medical and non-medical providers are paid directly by the locally licensed insurers.
If you purchase the Aruba Visitors Insurance and do not take your trip, you may request a full refund by email.
As soon as you’ve completed the ED-Card form and payment, you will receive an email with your Aruba Visitors Insurance policy documents attached.

Timing: Purchase of the Aruba Visitors Insurance must be completed within 3 days hours, and 4 hours prior to travel to Aruba.

This will require visitors to consent to comply with the rules and procedures as mandated by the Aruban government. This will include:

Acknowledgment and consent that upon arrival and during their stay in Aruba visitors shall cooperate with any type of COVID-19 testing as indicated by the public health authorities of Aruba, including isolation and/or quarantine.
Acknowledgment and consent that in case the visitor undergoes diagnostic Molecular PCR COVID-19 testing, they shall await their Molecular PCR COVID-19 test results in quarantine as instructed by the public health authorities.
Acknowledgment and consent to follow any and all instructions imposed by the public health authorities of Aruba; this includes, but is not limited to, instructions to be isolated or quarantined due to exposure to COVID-19.
For details on the procedures for guests showing a positive COVID-19 test result while in Aruba, please reference the “Regulations when showing symptoms or testing positive for COVID-19 while in Aruba” section below.
Timing: Consent to Aruba Government mandates must be completed within 3 days hours and 4 hours prior to travel to Aruba.

Upon successful completion of the ED card process, travelers will receive an email confirmation of approval for travel, which must be shown either digitally or in printed form at check in or upon boarding.
