Aruba has updated its travel protocols again, this time with a major change: the island is now waiving pre-testing requirements for those with booster shots.
All visitors who upload a digitally verifiable proof of vaccination (including proof of a booster shot) prior to arrival are exempt from pre-testing requirements.
Visitors between 12 and 17 need only show proof of vaccination; the booster shot is optional for the testing exemption.
Children aged 11 years and younger are exempt from testing requirements.
All booster shots must have been performed at least seven days before travel; approved shots include Pfizer; Moderna; AstraZeneca; Johnson & Johnson and Novavax.
Alterantively, all other visitors can either show proof of a negative antigen test taken between one day and four hours before arrival in Aruba, or a negative PCR test taken between three days and four hours before arrival in Aruba.
All visitors must purchase Aruba Visitors Insurance as part of the requisite ED form (you can find the form here).
The move follows recent steps by another Dutch Caribbean destination, St Maarten, to waive testing requirements for boosted visitors.
