Holidays Get Back in The Swing in Aruba

Island lifts all restrictions – including the ban on dancing!

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 anyone fully vaccinated with a booster can visit the island without the need for testing in advance or on arrival. Visitors are required to have a digitally verifiable QR-code proof of vaccination status. For further details please visit 

The long-standing requirement to complete an online Embarkation and Disembarkation form remains. Additionally, visitors must also take out compulsory Aruba Visitors Insurance to cover medical and other costs in the event that they contract coronavirus while on the island. This costs US$10 per day for the first seven days; US$7 per day for the following seven days; and US$3 per day thereafter.
