Aruba has implemented a number of travel regulations to keep visitors and locals alike safe since reopening its borders last summer, including requiring travellers to submit a negative COVID-19 test prior to or upon arrival and purchase Aruba Visitors Insurance. COVID-19 cases among visitors have remained continuously low thanks to Aruba’s severe health and safety efforts, while more than 75 percent of Aruba’s eligible citizens (aged 12 and up) have received at least their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination.
