Covid-19 Testing Facilities in Aruba

Important information on COVID-19 testing options in Aruba

As of July 8th, 2022, all travelers will no longer be required to purchase the Aruba Visitors Insurance. All travelers will still be required to complete Aruba’s Embarkation/Disembarkation Card before arrival, which is the country’s digitized customs and immigration process. We highly recommend each traveler to have travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage.

Some hotels still offer on-site 24-hour or less testing and we have enough testing centers that are able to serve our visitors and deliver results quickly.  You should feel confident that your ability to travel to and from Aruba from the United States will not be impacted.

 

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. Prices range from $40 to $50 for an Antigen test and from $75 to $125 for a PCR test.

To help make your vacation hassle-free, these Aruba hotels and resorts offer on-site testing for their guests. If your accommodation is not listed, scroll down for a list of Aruba’s testing facilities.

Testing in Aruba : FAQ's

Return Travel Testing FAQ

Are the testing facilities convenient to Aruba’s main hotel areas?
Yes. The Horacio Oduber Hospital is located in Eagle Beach, Medcare clinic is located on the South end of Palm Beach, and MedLab and Laboratorio Familiar is located on the North end of Palm Beach.
Can I get my Covid-19 test done at my place of stay in Aruba?
Yes. Two of Aruba’s facilities, MedLab & Medcare, offer testing at the visitor’s accommodation. Check with the facility for details on appointments, any additional fees, etc.
Are costs for the Covid-19 test covered by the required purchase of Aruba Visitors Insurance?
No. Covid-19 tests performed in Aruba for visitors return flight requirements are not covered by the Aruba Visitor Insurance. Please note: If your test shows a positive result, the Aruba Visitor Insurance will be activated and will cover costs related to medical coverage, isolation expenses, transportation, etc. For complete details on what is covered by the Aruba Visitors Insurance visit https://www.arubavisitorsinsurance.com/
Would my personal insurance cover the test?

It may or may not. Please check with your insurance provider to see if your insurance company covers the costs of a “fit-to-fly” type test.
Are children required to show a negative COVID-19 test for return travel?

This depends on the requirements of your home country/state/city. For US travelers, the CDC has stated the order applies to all air passengers, 2 years of age or older, traveling into the US, including US citizens and legal permanent residents. For more details on the CDC travel requirements https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html
How long will it take to get my test results?
This may vary a bit between facilities in Aruba, but, generally, you will receive your test results within 24 hours. Please check with your selected testing facility in Aruba for exact timings.
How will I receive my test results?
This may vary between facilities in Aruba, but, generally, you will receive confirmation in electronic form via email. Please check with your selected testing facility in Aruba for their exact procedures.
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. For complete details on the CDC guidelines for US travelers, visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html
When should I make an appointment or plans for my test?
Once your travel plans to Aruba are solidified, we recommend visitors identify and make contact with their testing facility of choice in Aruba. The earlier visitors can plan their testing or make an appointment, the better.
Will my accommodation help me secure the appointment?
Please consult your accommodation to confirm their policy on assistance in making testing appointments or any other testing services they provide their guests.
Should I use the Aruba Health App?
Yes. Prior to travel, all visitors should download the Aruba Health App via https://www.aruba.com/us/aruba-health-app . Created by Aruba’s Department of Public Health, the Aruba Health App will help provide a more seamless, contactless experience including important health information while on-island, a listing of all the businesses certified with Aruba’s Health & Happiness Code, faster test results and more.

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. For more details, visit https://www.aruba.com/us/traveler-health-requirements
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". 
For more details on the CDC travel requirements visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html
