Aruba Opens to Fully-vaccinated Tourists


Aruba is now allowing all travellers to enter the island without having to take a Covid-19 test as long as they have a digitally verifiable QR-Code proof of a Covid-19 booster vaccination.

Alternatively, they can take an antigen test one day prior or a PCR test up to a maximum of three days prior to travelling to Aruba.

A complete vaccination status includes a booster shot administered at least seven days before travel. A booster means an additional Covid-19 vaccine dose, in combination with a completed primary series. Any combination of the following vaccines will be accepted: Pfizer BioNTech (Comirnaty), Moderna (Spikevax), AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Johnson&Johnson (Janssen), Novavax (Nuvaxovid). This needs to be uploaded as part of the ED Card process no earlier than 3 days before arrival.

Visitors between the ages of 12 and 17 can enter Aruba with a completed primary series, so no booster shot is required at this time.

This change in status is applicable to all arrivals, regardless of country of residence.
