Covid-19 Testing Facilities in Aruba

Important information on COVID-19 testing options in Aruba

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR ALL U.S. TRAVELERS:
Effective January 26th, 2021, as announced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. government will require all international airline passengers to show proof of a negative, PCR or Antigen, Covid-19 test before boarding flights to the United States. In addition, the results of the test must be within 3 days preceding flight departure. If a passenger does not provide documentation of a negative test or recovery, or chooses not to take a test, the airline must deny boarding to the passenger. For complete details on the CDC guidelines for accepted tests, timing, etc. click here.

In the Aruban Government’s continuing efforts to provide the most safe, seamless and coordinated travel experience possible, all necessary facilities and procedures are in place for any visitor needing to take a Covid-19 test while in Aruba as a requirement for re-entry to their country/state/city of origin.

Why would I need a Covid-19 test before departure from Aruba?

As part of their pandemic travel protocols, some countries/states/cities now require travelers show a negative COVID-19 test result to be granted re-entry to their country of origin. These are often referred to as “fit-to-fly” tests.

Where/how can I get a return travel Covid-19 test in Aruba?

Aruba has a modern infrastructure and the testing facilities are well-equipped to administer Covid-19 tests to outbound travelers. Visitors can schedule an appointment in advance, or simply walk-in if the facility allows. Visitors can also arrange for an on-site test at their place of stay, if offered by their accommodation.

When do I have to take the test in Aruba?
This all depends on the requirements of your country/state/city. Most protocols require a negative test result within 3 days-24 hours preceding flight departure. Visitors are strongly encouraged to learn their country/state/city testing requirements and coordinate their test in Aruba accordingly, as there will be specified test timing requirements in order for the test to be valid.

Should I use the Aruba Health App?

What if I show a positive COVID-19 test result?
In the event of a positive COVID-19 test result, all visitors are required to follow the isolation protocols as put in place by the Government of Aruba and agreed to by the visitor as part of the online Embarkation/Disembarkation card process.

If I recently recovered from COVID-19, and entered Aruba with proof of past positivity, will I also be required to show a negative Covid-19 test for return travel from Aruba?
This depends on the requirements of your home country/state/city. For US travelers, the CDC states the following: “If you have had a positive viral test in the past 3 months, and you have met the criteria to end isolation, you may travel instead with documentation of your positive viral test results and a letter from your healthcare provider or a public health official that states you have been cleared for travel. The positive test result and letter together are referred to as "documentation of recovery".
