If just planning on visiting Aruba, U.S. citizens do not need a visa for stays of up to 30 days.If looking to stay a little longer, U.S. and Canadian citizens can request an extension of this visa to 180 days if they have property in Aruba or have a declaration of guarantee from a resident of Aruba who will act as guarantor for and be liable for any costs incurred during their stay.

All tourists who apply for an extension of their stay beyond 30 days are required to have travel insurance (medical and liability) valid for the duration of the extended stay.

If you want to live and work in Aruba, you must have a valid residence permit from the Directorate of Alien Integration,Policy and Admission (DIMAS). Find more information at:
