    ED (Embarkation/Disembark) CHANGES

    Please be aware.
    Effective immediately...................One's test results MUST be uploaded during the ED process
    If your results have NOT arrived prior to take off, but received before arrival, they are no longer accepted!
    You will be required to test in Aruba.

    Yes, you can still print all of the docs, and hand carry, but the test MUST be uploaded onto the ED site OR you will be required to test in Aruba and quarantine til those results come in.

    The test MUST BE UPLOADED prior to your flight leaving.

    On our last 2 visits my husband's test was not accepted on the site when I uploaded it.
    We just showed them the hard copy at arrival.

    I hope that they have worked out all the bugs in their system re: the uploading of tests.

    Expect more changes to all of this covid protocol stuff as time passes.

    Is there a phone number to call if test results won’t download to ED? Haven’t been back since Covid start, returning next month.

    My last trip they never asked for the copies of the test. 3 times I was asked for ED Card or green check mark which had a bar code they kept scanning. I guess the bar code would let them know if test was uploaded.

    Thanks. I had emailed Aruba Tourism and they did not comment on any changes. Is this change (test must be downloaded) documented in a DVG announcement?

    Angela’s issue was test could not be uploaded, thus no green check. Got thru with hard copy. If they change that test results must be uploaded, they better make sure system glitches are resolved. Imagine getting tested in states 72 hours before, can’t upload negative result, then must pay for another test at Aruba airport and quarantine until results come in - bummer!

    nope.
    we got the green checks.
    are you assuming we did not get the green checks.
    I never said we did not.
    even though in Nov of 2020 and May 2021 his test was unable to be uploaded....still got the green checks!

    I know plenty of folks who have chosen to be tested upon arrival.
    they also
