Aruba ED Card Application


If you want to visit a relaxing and peaceful place surrounded by water to escape the stress your city life gives you, then Aruba Island might be the perfect place for you. This small island has beautiful sandy shores, and the clear blue ocean is a stunning sight. To visit this beautiful island, you will require an ED card, but to acquire one, you have to apply for it. If applying for an ED card is new for you, have no worries; this guide will get you through the easy process of applying for an ED card.

Who Needs To Apply For the Aruba ED Card

The Aruba embarkation/disembarkation card, commonly known as the ED card, is required for all travelers including minors and infants, entering or departing from the island of Aruba. The ED card is required for both residents and non-residents of Aruba.

What is the Aruba ED card?

The Aruba ED card is a new travel document required by nationals and travelers for entering or exiting Aruba. It is also known as the Aruba embarkation/disembarkation form, and it replaces the physical form that tourists required to enter the country. It’s a completely digital form, and applying for it is easy. You don’t have to carry several documents because the Aruba ED card has verified everything necessary for you to travel. It also shows that you have purchased the visitor’s insurance for Aruba.

How to fill out the Aruba ED card application?

Filling out the Aruba ED card application form is easy. Simply follow the steps below.

Step 1:

Firstly, go to the official Aruba portal, and on the main screen, you will select from two options; resident or non-resident. If you’re traveling to the country as a tourist, select “non-resident.”

Step 2:

After clicking on the non-resident arrow, a pop-up will come up asking about your arrival date and notifying you that you can fill out your Aruba ED card 7 days before your arrival on the island.

Step 3:

On the start page, you will have to fill in personal information such as your last and first name, date of birth, passport number, nationality, passport type and expiration date, phone number, and email address.

When you have correctly filled in all of this information, click “next.”

Step 4:

Now, the Aruba ED card form will require you to fill in more personal information about yourself, such as a permanent address, employment details, gender, etc.

Step 5:

When you reach the fourth section of your Aruba ED card application, you will have to provide flight details such as the name of the airline, name of accommodation, number of times you have visited the island previously, and date of departure, etc. You will also have to provide information related to your visit to Aruba.

Step 6:

Next, for your online ED card form, you will have to read and answer several disclaimers regarding Conditions to qualify for the board, costs, regulations, testing, screening, and other instructions.

Step 7:

After you have completed every step of your Aruba ED card form, you can get either one of the two possible responses to your ED card application which are qualified or denied. If you have qualified for the application, you will receive an email with a green checkmark and a barcode.

This barcode will grant you entry to Aruba. Ensure you save it on your phone or a physical copy as a printout and show it when the authorities at the airport ask for it.

When Is The Aruba ED Card Checked?

Your Aruba ED card will be checked twice; first, it will be checked during the departure when the airline assesses it. The second time it will be inspected by the authorities on your arrival to Aruba.

How Long Can I Stay In Aruba?

The maximum number of days a traveler can stay on the island is for 30 days, but you can extend it by applying for an extension of stay, but it cannot exceed 180 days per year.

How long is the Aruba ED Card Valid for?

The Aruba ED card is a single-entry-only document and will be valid until you enter the island. You will have to get an ED card each time you enter or leave the country.

Who Doesn’t Require A Visa To Enter Aruba?

Citizens from America, the Caribbean, Canada, European, and most citizens from South America are not required visas for entry in Aruba. If you’re from these countries, then you won’t also require a visa to Aruba, but if you are not from these countries, you will need a visa.

What are The Aruba ED Card Covid-19 Test Requirements?

Travelers are now no longer required to provide any proof of vaccination or any covid-19 negative test. However, it is advised to download the health app of Aruba so you can stay up to date with any changes or alternations related to Aruba’s health and safety regulations.
