Find the best travel insurance for Aruba

Dreaming about Aruba's relaxing beaches, rejuvenating spas and revitalizing nightlife? You're not alone. On average, this Caribbean island hosts two million tourists each year.

If you hope to be one of these lucky tourists, there are some requirements and regulations you'll need to follow.

Travel insurance is required in Aruba

Good news: Aruba is open for travel. But you'll need to follow some rules. As the country grapples with the COVID-19 outbreak, Aruba travel restrictions have increased. Among Aruba's travel requirements is the need for travel insurance. If you're traveling to Aruba, make sure you have the necessary travel medical insurance for the duration of your stay.

Currently, border officials require visitors to buy specific Covid insurance for Aruba. It's available in Aruba for about $30 per person, per stay (cost depends on age). There are some exceptions to this requirement. Visitors who enter and leave the country within the same day, transfer crew and passengers who don't check luggage and children 13 and under are all exempt from having to purchase this insurance. However, there's an administration fee of $10 for every minor. For more information, contact Aruba Visitors Insurance.

Does this mean you shouldn't purchase your own travel insurance for Aruba? Not necessarily. While any other travel insurance you buy can't replace the required Aruba Visitors Insurance plan, it can be a good supplement, especially if you want travel health insurance for Aruba that covers more than just Covid related issues.

Travelers who purchase supplemental insurance in addition to the required Aruba insurance can benefit from coverages such as: trip delay, missed connection, lost/damaged checked luggage, trip interruption, etc. These benefits are not offered by the Aruba insurance. Plus, the maximum coverage on Aruba insurance is $75k, which is low. Any costs over this amount is the insured's responsibility, unless you have a more robust supplemental insurance.

So, when you're packing your swim trunks or summer dresses, don't forget to buy the basic travel insurance plan required by the Aruban government and protect yourself and your loved ones even more with comprehensive travel insurance.

Health & safety

Here are some general considerations to keep yourself safe and healthy as you experience all Aruba has to offer.

Aruba's tap water is safe to drink. This is very convenient given that you'll need to drink a lot of water to guard against the hot sun. Make sure you wear a hat and sunglasses, bring a high SPF sunscreen, and be sure to stay hydrated.

Bring mosquito repellent. Malaria isn't a concert in Aruba, but you still don't want to get bitten by mosquitos.

Finally, be wary of street vendors. Be cautious of purchasing any street food that has been sitting out for a while. Opting for food that's been cooked in front of you is a smarter way to purchase street food.

Necessary vaccinations

Make sure you are up-to-date on all routine vaccines before your trip. Here are some common vaccination recommendations for Aruba.

  • Chickenpox (Varicella)
  • Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis
  • Flu (influenza)
  • Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR)
  • Shingles
  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Polio
  • Meningitis

For the most up-to-date information on required vaccinations and other health requirements, visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website.

Visas & documentation

In order to enter the country, you'll need a passport valid for the length of stay. If you hold a passport from a visa-required country, then a valid visa sticker will also be required. Likewise, you'll need a completed and signed Embarkation and Disembarkation card (ED-card) along with proof of onward travel.

You may also be asked to provide proof of accommodations in Aruba and/or adequate financial means for the duration of your stay.
