Do I need a visa for Aruba?

You don’t need a visa to enter Aruba. As a British passport holder, you can stay as a visitor for up to three months. If you intend to stay for a longer period, you should contact the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Healthcare in Aruba

It’s also important to speak to your GP at least four to six weeks prior to travel to find out whether you’ll need any vaccinations before your trip to Aruba.

UK health authorities have put Aruba under risk of Zika virus transmission. This doesn’t affect you unless you are pregnant, so take care. There have also been cases of Chikungunya virus which is also transmitted by mosquitoes so you should take steps to avoid being bitten. If you’re in a remote area, ambulance services may vary. Please visit the website for the most up-to-date list of countries by level of Zika and Chikungunya risk.

British citizens should note that their EHIC or GHIC is not valid in Aruba. You can find good medical facilities in hotels and hospitals, but these may be expensive. It’s important to make sure you have travel insurance with medical expenses covered in case anything unfortunate happens abroad. If you have pre-existing medical conditions you must declare these before you buy your policy to ensure you’re fully covered.
