    Antigen Test @ Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort

    Have any of you who stayed at the Tamarijn or Divi had your antigen test to get back into the states at Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort?
    If so, how did it work out for you? Were there any issues?

    Hi. I am also looking for the same information about this testing option and what test is acceptable to get on JetBlue back to the USA Divi charges 50$ for antigen and 125$ for PCR. So which one is the one to take to be certain one can get on the plane home. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The US accepts an antigen test for sure. It is on the Aruba.com website

    Ok so the Aruba site does say that yet it also says to check CDC guidelines. CDC guidelines in the order state “What types of SARS-CoV-2 test are acceptable under the Order?Passengers must be tested with a viral test that could be either an antigen test or a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT).”

    so it just depends on where one wants to be tested. I am opting for convenience at Divi and have booked the antigen test there.

    the last question is how long does it take to get results. On the Divi site they say two days before. Just wondering if that is good enough timing. Just sending this along to see if anyone has done this and if it’s better to do three days before rather than two. Thanks to all once again.

    The PCR and Antigen tests in Aruba travelers leaving the island get their results within 10 hours or less.
    We got ours in 3 hrs. Antigen taken at LaCabana.

    We took the antigen test at the Paseo Herencia mall and got the results in a couple of hours.

    I just left the Divi Golf and Beach on Sunday. We did the antigen test on Friday morning and received our results back that afternoon. This is the second time we have tested there and it was seamless. We will be doing the same when we return in December.
