Two years after the onset of the pandemic, the Caribbean island of Aruba is doing away with its remaining COVID-19-related travel restrictions.
Starting Saturday, Aruba will no longer require a negative coronavirus test or proof of vaccination for entry. Previously, tourists were allowed to enter only with a negative coronavirus test, proof of full vaccination or proof of recovery.
Visitors’ insurance is still required, and all travelers will still need to complete an embarkation/disembarkation card before arrival.
A statement from the Aruba Tourism Authority said the Aruban government, health care systems and tourism industry will “monitor the current environment and changing conditions to determine how to further adapt, if necessary.”
The island is just one of many destinations that are beginning to roll back coronavirus travel restrictions ahead of the busy summer travel season.
Canadian officials on Thursday announced that the country would drop its pre-departure coronavirus testing requirement for fully vaccinated travelers starting April 1. Similarly, New Zealand announced this week plans to reopen to vaccinated international tourists in May, and South Korea is set to drop its quarantine requirement for vaccinated travelers next month.
