UPDATE ON PCR TESTING REQUIREMENTS
As a country that is heavily reliant on tourism, we are continually assessing a variety of risks and protections to ensure our safeguards and protocols meet the highest standard. Creating a safe environment for our residents and guests is of the utmost importance to us.
To increase safety measure for the health and wellbeing of travelers and our locals, visitors from the United States residing in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, Wyoming will still be able to travel to Aruba. However, as of July 10th, travelers from the states listed above must take a PCR test and upload their test results as part of the online Embarkation/Disembarkation process. Travelers can get tested within the 72-hour period prior to their direct departure flight time to Aruba, and they must upload the results to the online Embarkation/Disembarkation process at least 12-hours prior to flight departure. Travelers will not be able to upload results after that point, meaning that they cannot travel to Aruba. Travelers from the states listed above will not have the option to be tested upon arrival at the airport in Aruba.
All other United States visitors that reside in states not listed above still have the option of taking a PCR test at their own expense upon arrival at the airport in Aruba, or can upload the PCR test in the 72-hour window.
We recognize this causes an extra step for those wanting to travel, and also know not everyone will be able to have access to this test in their state. These are necessary safeguards designed to keep Aruba safe and free of health risks.
