The Caribbean island of Curaçao announced today entry requirements and special offerings for travelers this season. Curaçao reports that 86,000 people of those eligible have been vaccinated, and over the past three weeks, documented a record-low positivity rate of 0.15%.
Considering these significantly reduced numbers, the nightly curfew has been removed for the first time in over a year. On-island restrictions have also been lifted with outdoor restaurants, bars and lounges allowed to operate at full capacity. Additionally, the airlift offered prior to the pandemic has resumed. Direct flights are available from major cities and airports including Miami (MIA) and Charlotte (CLT) via American Airlines and from New York (JFK) via JetBlue, making Curaçao an easily accessible destination.
To welcome back travelers, starting now through June 29, visitors can book and take advantage of an island-wide promotion, which is valid for travel June 19 – October 30, 2021. Every fourth night is free at participating hotels, ranging from family-friendly boutique hotels and all-inclusive resorts to luxury villas, private island retreats, trendy bungalows, and internationally known brand-name properties with suites of all sizes. The island’s unbeatable location below the hurricane belt offers year-round sunshine and reliable weather, making it a favored destination for Caribbean enthusiasts and tropical vacation seekers this summer.
Welcoming all international visitors since January 1, 2021, Curaçao’s entry requirements and safety protocols have adapted to coincide with the evolving travel environment. To enter the country, travelers must complete the three mandatory steps on www.dicardcuracao.com:
- Complete the digital immigration card online before departure.
- Fill out the Passenger Locator Card (PLC) 48 hours prior to departure and carry a printed copy upon arrival, as well as schedule an antigen test at a local laboratory on their third day of travel in Curaçao.
- Provide proof of a negative result from a certified COVID-19 PCR-test and carry a printed document of proof with them. Travelers will be required to upload their negative test results on www.dicardcuracao.com before their departure.
Current protocols require all potential visitors, both vaccinated and not, to show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, though government officials and a consulting team of respected doctors are discussing possible future amendments to this policy.
