Aruba Revises Entry Requirements

Aruba updated its entry requirements for residents from Canada and the US (high risk countries) as of Jan. 18, 2022, providing them with the option of taking an antigen test one (1) day prior or a PCR test up to two (2) days prior to traveling to the island.

It should be noted that since Dec. 27, 2021 residents from high risk countries do not have the option to test upon arrival.

Visitors 12 and older, who have tested positive using a molecular COVID-19 test by nasopharyngeal swab between 10 days and 12 weeks prior to travel date to Aruba, and do not show any symptoms, will be exempt from the requirement of providing a negative COVID-19 test result for entry to Aruba.

As announced in December, Aruba had partnered with OK2Roam to create a more seamless way for visitors to process the entry requirements to the Caribbean island. The new system allows travellers to authorize an approved laboratory to send their negative test result directly to Aruba’s Embarkation-Disembarkation card entry platform.

Through this system, travellers can take a video-supervised PCR test or can go to a test center in more than 50 locations, where they can take either a PCR or rapid antigen test.

The service, provided by VFS Global, was tested and validated to ensure that it can adhere to Aruba’s new testing requirements.
