Required Documents to Apply
Even though Aruba is a Caribbean island located just 15 miles north of Venezuela, it remains a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Needless to say, like all Caribbean islands, Aruba is a slice of tropical paradise where tourists flock to its pristine beaches. One of the most popular tourist attractions is the "Natural Pool" on the northern part of the island. Aside from lounging on the beach, Aruba offers plenty of activities for travelers. For example, you can go hiking, diving or snorkeling, horseback riding, or take a jeep safari trip around the island. There is just no way you can get bored in Aruba.
Before you travel to Aruba, you need to check if you need a visa or not. Although Aruba is a part of the Netherlands, a Schengen visa does not apply, which is why you need to get a special visa for Aruba by submitting an application to your nation's diplomatic mission or embassy of the Netherlands. This visa offered is for stays up to 30-day, however, according to the visa policy of the Netherlands in the Caribbean, there are many nationalities that can travel to Aruba without a visa if their stay does not exceed 90 days.
In order to see if you need a visa or not, you can check out the visa policy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the Caribbean to find info on your country of origin. But we think using iVisa’s Visa Checker will make the task a whole lot simpler. All you have to do is click on the Visa Checker button you see in the top right corner of this page and fill in the boxes. You must select your nationality from the drag-down menu on the left, and you must choose Aruba as your destination on the right. The result will tell you if you need a visa or not. If you do, we provide some useful information on the embassies closest to you, where you can apply in-person.
Unfortunately, iVisa does not process applications for Aruba because electronic visas are not available. Nevertheless, we still want to help you in any way that we can, which is why our support service is at your disposal 24/7 and is free of charge.
At the same time, you need to check out the visa requirements to ensure that you meet them. You can find a lot of information online, but we advise you to use it as a reference only. We recommend that you contact the issuing authority in your home country and ask your questions there - they can give you the most legitimate and up-to-date answers. Meanwhile, what we can tell you is that all travelers who take a trip to Aruba need a passport with at least 6 months of validity from the date of arrival.
Even though we cannot provide further assistance with the process of obtaining a visa for Aruba, we hope that the above information helps!
