IMPORTANT UPDATE: Beginning November 1, 2020, the classification of U.S. “hot spot” states will no longer be in effect. As such, as part of the required online Embarkation/ Disembarkation card process, residents of all 50 states will now have the option to take a PCR test upon arrival at the airport in Aruba as well as the option to provide a certified negative test result prior to travel to Aruba.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Through a partnership with Vault Heath, all JetBlue passengers who want to test prior to travel to Aruba, now have the convenient option of an at-home, saliva-based PCR test, in addition to the option of securing a PCR test from a certified health provider or lab. Those JetBlue passengers not choosing to test prior to travel, must take a PCR test upon arrival at the airport in Aruba. For more details, click here.
