    This answers numerous question. Jan 17, 2022 for entry Into Aruba from high risk

    COVID-19 Test requirements
    Testing prior to travel to Aruba
    The Government of Aruba requires the test to be a COVID-19 test, obtained from a nasal swab specimen through amplified Molecular testing or Antigen testing performed by a certified lab, and the results need to be uploaded as part of the ED card process.

    Your lab results need to be in English, Dutch or Spanish, and list:
    · Your name, as it appears on passport
    · Date the test was collected
    · "COVID-19", "SARS-CoV-2" or "Coronavirus"
    · The type of test or test brand name (see below)
    · How the test was taken: "Nasal", "Nasopharyngeal", "Mid-turbinate", "Combined Oral/Nasal", or "Combined Oral/Nasopharyngeal", or "Combined Oral/Mid-turbinate" swab
    · Your test result (for example "Negative", "Not-Detected")

    Tests that are accepted:

    Accepted Antigen test types:
    · Antigen test
    · Ag test
    · Rapid Antigen test
    · Lateral-flow Antigen test

    Accepted Antigen test brands, such as, but not limited to:
    · Quidel Sophia
    · Abbott BinaxNOW (only when collected by licensed medical staff)
    · LumiraDx Antigen

    __________________________________________________ ____________________________
    Accepted Molecular test types:
    · PCR / RT-PCR / ddPCR / Rapid PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction)
    · NAA / NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification)
    · AMP PRB (Amplified Probe)
    · LAMP (Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification)
    · TMA (Transcription-mediated Amplification)
    Accepted Molecular test brands, such as, but not limited to:
    · Abbott ID NOW - Only when results include the original thermal receipt / sticker, or results are verifiable through an email or patient portal.
    · Quidel Lyra PCR
    · Abbott Realtime PCR
    · Cobas Qualitative PCR
    · FTD PCR
    · Xpert Xpress
    · Simplexa Direct PCR
    · Vault Health
    · ADL Health
    · Stage Zero Life Sciences




    Tests that are not accepted:
    · Any at-home kits, telehealth or self administered tests (the sample needs to be collected by licensed medical staff)
    o With the exception of Vault Health, ADL Health and Stage Zero Life Sciences
    · Any test that does not rely on a nasal swab, such as:
    o Sputum, saliva and spit collection (spit in a cup, etc)
    o Gargle, oral rinse, etc
    o Oral swab without a nasal swab
    o With the exception of Vault Health, ADL Health and Stage Zero Life Sciences
    · All Antibody tests (such as IgG, IgA, IgM and Rapid Antibody Tests)
    · All blood tests (such as fingerstick, venipuncture)
    · All plasma tests
    · All serum tests
    · All fever checks
    · All temperature checks
    · Any Doctor's note
    Upload any of these, or an inauthentic test result, you will be denied boarding or required to retake the PCR test on arrival at the Airport at your expense.


    And

    Question
    If I've recovered from COVID-19 recently, how can I provide a negative COVID-19 test result?
    Due to the fact that COVID-19 can show residual traces many weeks later in those who have tested positive, yet they show no symptoms and are likely not infectious, the Aruban government has implemented a specific policy.

    Those visitors 12 and older, who have tested positive using a Molecular COVID-19 test by nasopharyngeal swab between 10 days and 12 weeks prior to their travel date to Aruba, and do not show any symptoms, will be exempt from the requirement of providing a negative COVID-19 test result for entry to Aruba.

    As part of the mandatory online Embarkation/Disembarkation Card process, these visitors will, however, be required to upload proof of their positive Molecular COVID-19 by nasopharyngeal swab test result taken between 10 days and 12 weeks prior to their travel date to Aruba.

    Note: This exemption does not apply for anyone who has had a positive COVID-19 test older than 12 weeks, or anyone who is not able to provide proof in the form of a Molecular COVID-19 by nasopharyngeal swab test result. Some examples of accepted Molecular COVID-19 tests are: PCR by nasopharyngeal swab, NAAT by nasopharyngeal swab, TMA by nasopharyngeal swab, etc. Some examples of tests that are not accepted are: Antigen, Antibody, blood tests, etc.


    Question

    Do children need to be tested as well?

    Children 11 and under are not required to take or submit any test.
