What are the current entry requirements?

Traveling to Bonaire is fairly easy! Prior to arrival, you must fill in and submit a Health Declaration Form. As entry requirements are changing please visit the official Bonaire page for the latest update per country.

Bonaire has made an antigen test location available at Bonaire International Airport for arriving travelers* who have not been able to take an antigen test in their country of origin, 24 hours prior to departure. In addition to the antigen test, travelers must present a negative PCR test result, taken up to 72 hours before arrival on Bonaire.

The best part? Once you’ve done the testing and your results are negative, you’re free to roam the island and discover Bonaire as no quarantine is required.

Does your home country require testing on your way back? There are several test facilities available throughout the island. Including one down the street from the resort!

Can I still make the most of my trip and enjoy activities?

Definitely! As Bonaire has always been an outdoors destination, most activities will take place outside in open air with plenty of distance. Although there may be some measures involving group activities (limited capacity) you can enjoy all the activities the island has to offer.

What are some measures on the island that I need to take into account?

Bonaire is not much different than other destinations around the world. The basics apply here as well, such as keeping your distance, avoiding large crowds, coughing and sneezing into your elbow and making sure you wash and sanitize your hands frequently. It may be required to wear a face mask upon entry into some stores, but not when you are in open air with enough distance. Easy right? And in the unfortunate event that you do start to feel sick, stay inside, you contact our front desk and we will guide you on what to do.
