Aruba entry requirements are fairly simple:
U.S. citizens do not require a tourist visa to enter Aruba, however, a valid U.S. passport is an entry requirement!
Aruba passport requirements further declare that a passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months prior to your departure date. Additionally, your passport must have unused visa pages. These will be used for entry and exit stamps upon arrival and departure.
Please note that the Amendment pages in the back of your passport are not to be used for stamps or visa issuance.
A U.S. passport can be obtained by a passport acceptance facility such as a post office. You must submit the following: completed passport application, citizenship evidence, photocopy of ID, and pay a fee.
If you hold a passport from a visa-required country, you must have a valid visa sticker in your passport. Aruba visa requirements must be applied for in person at an embassy or consulate of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. However, some countries have approved travel agencies that can apply for a visa on your behalf.
