Aruba is Restriction Free!

Holiday life in Aruba is returning to normal as the island’s government lifts a raft of Covid restrictions.

From this week, the Dutch Caribbean island has scrapped all local measures, meaning that such day-to-day things as shop opening hours and dancing at events and in clubs can return to pre-pandemic normality.

Other changes include the lifting of limits on the number of people at a restaurant tables and no restrictions on the number of people allowed at weddings or other events.

Joanna Walding, UK & Ireland director of the Aruba Tourism Authority, commented: ‘We are delighted that all practical restrictions for both local residents and visitors have been lifted this week. As the world emerges from the pandemic, we are delighted that Aruba is enabling life to get back to normal and let everyone enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our sun-drenched island.

‘It is also especially good news for the growing number of couples choosing Aruba as their wedding and honeymoon destination, as these celebrations can now also go ahead without any limits.’

Meanwhile, Covid-related entry requirements for visitors to Aruba have also been updated, with the key decision that all travellers, regardless of vaccination status, will no longer be required to present a COVID-19 negative test result or proof of vaccination.  For the latest details visit
