Anyone traveling to Curaçao will soon no longer need to be tested. From Thursday, March 10, the PCR and antigen test to enter Curaçao will expire. Travelers only need to fill in the Passenger Location Card digitally. The government announced this yesterday. In recent times, the corona measures in Curaçao have been further relaxed. The antigen test on the third day of arrival was withdrawn earlier.
MOUTH CAPS ONLY IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT AND CARE; NO MORE VISITOR LIMIT FOR PARTIES
The mask obligation expires almost everywhere on Curacao. Prime Minister Pisas announced this this morning. A face mask is only mandatory in hospitals, other healthcare institutions and public transport. Owners of shops and other buildings can decide for themselves whether they still require a face mask in their space. They must announce this at the entrance.
There is no longer a visitor limit for parties and other group activities. That was initially 200 people inside and a maximum of 400 people outside. “That doesn’t mean we should immediately turn it into a madhouse,” Prime Minister of Curaçao said, “because the virus is still there.”

1. FILL OUT DIGITAL IMMIGRATION CARD

Are You Traveling to Curacao?
While the pandemic seems to be heading in the direction of an endemic, government measures around the island are becoming more relaxed. Despite this, we think it is still important as hosts of our tourists visiting our island, to address how to handle a possible infection, in the best, safe, and most comfortable way.
Therefore, with the support from our local health department (GGD), and local government officials, we created a simple guidelines document in the form of a Q & A.
Due to this dynamic situation, please continue to check back in case changes to government measures or guidelines.
