Curaçao Reopening to Travelers from Three U.S. States

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - October 11, 2020

While Curaçao has been open to Canada and other “low-risk” source markets for several months, the Dutch Caribbean island has announced a planned November reopening to travelers from three U.S. states: New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. 

All visitors from those states must present proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of travel. 

U.S. flights to Curaçao will resume Nov. 7, with United relaunching weekly service from Newark. 

“After consulting with the scientific community and an esteemed panel of doctors both in The Netherlands and on the island, we made the decision to slowly reopen Curaçao’s tourism industry to the US,” says Paul Pennicook, CEO of the Curaçao Tourist Board. “A multitude of factors were taken into account including current cases, airlift and impact on the local economy, among others.”

In December, JetBlue will be operating two flights each week from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

“We will continue to closely monitor developments throughout the rest of the US,” Pennicook said. “As we’ve enjoyed double digit growth from the US market over the last couple of years and the US accounts for a significant portion of Curaçao’s tourism arrivals, we look forward to the opening of other gateway cities as soon as conditions allow so that Americans can continue to experience this extraordinary destination.”
