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 Requirements for Aruba

As of July 8, 2022, all travelers to Aruba are no longer required to purchase the Aruba Visitors Insurance, however, travelers are still required to complete Aruba’s Embarkation/Disembarkation Card before arrival, which is the country’s digitized customs and immigration process. 

It is highly recommended for each traveler to have travel insurance with COVID-19 coverage. 

A travel medical insurance policy provides coverage for trip delay, missed connections, lost or damaged checked luggage, trip interruption and medical evacuation, in addition to coverage for illness or accidental injury. 

So, when you're packing your swim trunks or summer dresses, consider travel medical insurance to 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.
