Children under 14 years of age will be exempted from the insurance provider but will be subject to a flat fee of USD 10 for one-off administration. 72 hours prior to travel, they must also submit a self-health declaration form and are advised to take a PCR test before traveling and submit the results online. Upon arrival in Aruba, travelers who do not do so will need to pay for a compulsory examination and remain in quarantine while awaiting the test results. Only if they have evidence of a negative test result prior to traveling to Aruba will travelers from US states with a high occurrence of COVID-19 cases be allowed entry; they will not have the opportunity to be checked on arrival. This may refer to citizens of the following states of the United States: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, South Carolina, Wyoming, and South Dakota. 

As of July 25, residents of the aforementioned states have been given a new test option: they will now be able to take an “accessible test” before traveling to Aruba and then take the required PCR test upon arrival in Aruba. An Antigen (QL IA, FIA), PCR Home kit, or any other form of the test could be an ‘open test.’ 

The ED Card website must have evidence of a negative test result.
