Eagle Beach, Aruba
Reopening of Aruba
The island of Aruba reopened to Brazilian travelers on June 7th.
The reason: with 65% of the population already vaccinated, the island is less afraid of the Brazilian variant, which meant that the borders remained closed to us between January 25th and June 6th.
The Aruba Protocols
Aruba created a unique protocol. In addition to the negative PCR test for covid, it requires the purchase of a own insurance against covid, which starts at 15 dollars a day. The insurance covers hospital and isolation expenses up to $75,000.
You need to fill out an online form, the ED Card, from 72 hours before boarding. In addition to providing all the information, you will need to upload a negative result from a Covid RT-PCR test taken at least 72 hours prior to travel.
Masks are mandatory on public transport and in places like hotel lobbys.
At the moment, restaurants are only open until 11 pm and can serve a maximum of 8 people per table.
Drinking alcoholic beverages on the beach is allowed, provided it is in your own hotel or within the limits of a bar or restaurant.
It is possible to go to the beach in Aruba with social distance, especially at beaches like Eagle and Arashi, which do not have hotels that face directly onto the sand.
Important: Brazilians must present an international certificate of vaccination against yellow fever to enter Aruba. The vaccine needs to be taken within 10 days of departure.
The shortest route from Brazil to Aruba is currently via Panama.
