    Another Newbie Here!!

    I was hoping someone could answer my questions? I have a trip planned on Aug 23. I know there is a test we must take before we get there so we dont have to quarantine, but coming from the US I've been told it takes at least 5 days to get a result back and Aruba says within 72 hrs. So can I take a test a week and few days before arriving? It's confusing

    welcome again!

    check out this link. https://www.aruba.com/us/traveler-health-requirements

    the test must be taken no more than 72 hrs before departure and submitted no less than 12 hrs on the ED card site.

    No, you cannot take the test a week out.
    72 hours max.

    you could take the test on Aruba at arrival.

    check out the link I provided.

    I do think as time goes by the test results will be in faster;
    Some labs have the results in 24 hrs; but do not give results days later (don't know why??)
    But... if you're doctor orders a test STAT (means results right away ... just saying)
