As the number of travelers continues to rise, positive COVID-19 cases also continue to rise in the Northern Hemisphere.
It seems that this time around a full lock-down will not happen, however, many national and local officials are calling on their citizens to avoid unnecessary travel.
On the other side, the cases in Aruba are under control and the borders remain open. Despite the spike in cases elsewhere, Aruba will maintain the borders open for visitors.
The reason for this is that there is currently a 100% test requirement before entering Aruba. You need to register online at ED Card prior to traveling to our island. Additionally, you need to present a negative PCR test result.
In order to facilitate this process recently JetBlue Airways and United Airlines now offer COVID-19 test to its passengers. The test is on the acceptable list by Aruba health officials and the results can be presented to immigration officials.
Aruba is getting the virus under control, so at the border you can expect them to be rigorous. The local population is doing well, which is translating into fewer rules. The only hospital in Aruba also has things under control.
Face mask, hand cleaning and physical distancing remain in place. Lastly, Aruba already announce that vaccines, via The Netherlands, should arrive locally at the end of 2020.
