Bonbini - Welcome back!

Aruba’s sunny shores are welcoming visitors once again! The people of Aruba have missed you very much, and we look forward to greeting you on One happy island with warmth, gratitude and, above all, your safety and well-being as our most important priority. 

Aruba’s diligent reopening will happen in phases, monitored closely by the Government of Aruba and the Department of Public Health, and the following are our most updated reopening dates by region and country:

June 15, 2020 – Bonaire & Curacao
July 1, 2020 - Canada
July 1, 2020 - Europe
July 1, 2020 - The Caribbean (Excluding the Dominican Republic & Haiti)
July 10, 2020 – The United States of America

IMPORTANT UPDATE: While the government of Aruba is still permitting travelers from all 50 states from the U.S., due to the significant number of states in the U.S. that have experienced increases in COVID-19 cases, we have adjusted the PCR testing requirements prior to travel for certain states, as a safety measure for the health and wellbeing of travelers and our locals, and visitors. Please click here for more details on the U.S. state-specific PCR testing requirements for travel to Aruba. 

Official opening dates for other markets, including South America and Central America, have yet to be determined…but hopefully soon! Aruba’s health and safety protocols will be revisited and reevaluated on an ongoing basis. Based on the ever-changing situation, we recommend all visitors check Aruba.com frequently for any changes to dates, markets, required procedures and more.
