    Aruba entry requirements from USA for children under 18

    Hi I just want to confirm that children under 18 just need a valid passport for entry into Aruba. Adults also might need drivers license etc... Is that correct?
    Heading down there soon so just want to be sure.
    thanks,

    Our grandchildren always fly to the island when we are there and they use their passports. You will need a drivers license if you plan to rent a car.

    Additional details

    http://travel.state.gov/travel/cbpmc/cbpmc_2223.html
    "...ALL PERSONS traveling by air outside of the United States are required to present a passport book or other valid travel document to enter or re-enter the United States.
    LAND AND SEA TRAVEL
    ALL PERSONS traveling by land and sea outside of the United States are required to present a passport book/card, or other valid travel documents to enter or re-enter the United States.

    The following summarizes information available on the Department of Homeland Security’s website:
    • Effective June 1, 2009, all U.S. citizens are now required to present a passport book, passport card, or WHTI-compliant documentwhen entering the United States.
      Please Note: Children under age 16 will be able to continue crossing land and sea borders using only a U.S. birth certificate (or other form of U.S. citizenship such as a naturalization certificate.). The original birth certificate or a copy may be used. See the Department of Homeland Security's Ready, Set.. Go! for more information on the changing travel requirements. ..."
    FWIW, we just renewed our dd's passport and were told turn around time is less than 6 weeks.
