Curacao Travel Guide for U.S. and Canadian Citizens

Curacao Entry Requirements for North American Residents

As per December 25, 2021, all countries are considered as “very high risk”. This means that the PCR test 48 hours prior to the flight in the country of origin is mandatory for entry to the island as well as the 3rd day antigen test (regardless of vaccination). CLICK HERE for all current travel related announcements and the country classification list.

The government makes a strong appeal to the community to adhere to the measures in place, as the number of positive cases is increasing fast.

These new measures and guidelines allow flexibility and to make sure your stay here is as comfortable as possible, while keeping Curaçao safe for our visitors and our local community.

Curaçao is currently focusing on decreasing the number of COVID-19 cases on the island. Simultaneously, local authorities are continuing their efforts to keep the island safe for both visitors and the local community. The requirement to take an antigen test on the third day of their stay is an additional measure as a result of these efforts.

The required third-day antigen test is required for all travelers entering Curaçao and is additional to the mandatory PCR test. The PCR test (48 hours before departure) must be submitted via the online Curaçao Digital Immigration Card. The results must be certified negative from an accredited laboratory.

Making an appointment for the antigen test is an integrated step to successfully register for the Passenger Locator Card. This is the last step of the registration process on Travelers can choose between several local laboratories.

The government of Curaçao requires all travelers to follow mandatory steps before departure. These steps are different for residents of Curaçao and international visitors.

* Complete a Digital Immigration Card.

* Fill out a Passenger Locator Card (PLC) within 48 hours prior to departure and carry a printed copy as proof upon arrival.

* Upload proof of a negative result from a certified COVID-19 PCR test taken within 48 hours prior to your departure for Curacao. Visitors must carry a printed copy as proof upon arrival. Note: PCR tests based on Gargle samples will not be accepted. Additionally, children six-years-old and younger showing no symptoms, and whose parents provide valid negative PCR tests, are not required to undergo a PCR test.
