Temporary Admission to Aruba

A VTA is a temporary decision that gives the applicant the opportunity to come to Aruba to take the medical tests in order to complete the permit process for obtaining a residence and/or work permit. If the person requiring a permit comes from a country that requires a visa, he/she must have a valid visa in addition to the VTA to enter Aruba.

Important deadlines

After receiving the VTA by email, the permit applicant has 3 months to travel to Aruba. Upon arrival in Aruba, the applicant has a maximum of 30 days to report to the Department of Public Health to take the medical tests in order to complete the permit application process. Of course, this does not apply to clandestine entry! Persons who have entered Aruba clandestinely will in any case receive a negative decision.
