ORANJESTAD - Because the number of coronavirus infections in Aruba has decreased, the island is now also a so-called code yellow destination for passengers from the Netherlands. The color code was converted from "orange" to "yellow" on Thursday. With orange, only necessary journeys are allowed. With yellow, you can simply travel to the destination, but there are safety risks. People returning from Aruba to the Netherlands no longer need to go into home quarantine.
Travelers going to Aruba from the Netherlands must complete an online immigration card. This card must have a negative PCR test result from 72 to 12 hours prior to departure, which must also be presented at check-in.
Aruban Tourism Minister Dangui Oduber said on Wednesday that he expected the travel advice to be adjusted, after a conversation with Undersecretary Paul Blokhuis of Health, Welfare and Sport. Oduber called it "unfair" that Aruba had an orange code and Curaçao a yellow code, while the infections are much higher there.
