The Aruban Government will Accept a Smart Health Card
In its ongoing efforts to make travel to One happy island as convenient and safe as possible, and as part of the Traveler Health Requirements, the Aruban government is happy to announce that, beginning July 14th, 2021, some U.S. residents who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 may be exempt from the COVID-19 testing requirement for entry to Aruba.

The Aruban government will still require that the proof of vaccination meet the requirements as part of the Aruba online Embarkation/Disembarkation (ED Card) process. While the program is being introduced for eligible travelers, other travelers who may not be eligible will still need to provide a negative COVID-19 test prior to entry to Aruba.
At this time, U.S. residents are able to travel to Aruba without providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test if they meet all of the following requirements:
- Have been vaccinated with an FDA or EMA authorized COVID-19 vaccine in the U.S. See the list in the FAQ.
- And are fully vaccinated for COVID-19: Either receiving both doses for 2-dose vaccines (a single dose for 1-dose vaccines).
- And 14 days must have passed since they received their last COVID-19 vaccine before traveling.
- And have a SMART® Health Card vaccine record.
- And use the CommonPass digital health app as part of Aruba’s ED Card online travel qualification process before their flight.
