Even Though It’s Fall You Can Still Visit Aruba
Aruba is in the middle of phased reopening, with American visitors welcomed back on July 10. Visitors from Europe were allowed in Aruba as of July 1.
Prime Minister Evelyn Wever-Croes told the media, “As we prepare to reopen our borders, Aruba has put in place advanced public health procedures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 on the island. We have taken careful and deliberate steps to assess the current situation and make certain it is as safe as possible and appropriate to begin the reopening process.”
Arrivals will face new screening measures, including the possibility of COVID-19 tests on arrival along with temperature checks and medical professionals available.
Americans from 20 states considered high-risk will need to upload proof of a negative test within 72 hours of flying to Aruba, or they won’t be allowed to board. Those from less risky states will also need to upload a test or have one taken at Oranjestad’s airport. Those who take a test on arrival will need to quarantine at their hotel for up to 24 hours while awaiting the results. The tests are paid for by the tourist.
All guests must also purchase visitors’ insurance from the nation of Aruba to cover up to $75,000 in health insurance. For a week, it will cost you about $100.
The country has also placed temporary capacity limits on some tourist spots, especially in popular destinations. Casinos will also reopen with new safety measures in place.
Aruba closed its borders to tourists back on March 29, although airline crew members were exempt from the restrictions.
The country has had 2,200 confirmed coronavirus cases and 12 deaths.
