It's extremely unlikely that the borders will close. The island is now more prepared since we expanded the IC beds and medical staff in the hospital. High-risk countries are obligated to do a PCR test and can only enter our island if that test result is negative.
What we have learned from 2020 is that the corona virus is not spreading amongst travelers. This is the reason why the island has opened its borders for all countries as of January 1, 2021.
Thanks to our local virologist Dr. Izzy Gerstenbluth, the island has been successful in avoiding the Coronavirus and keeping those risks at a far minimum.
In close cooperation with hotels, tourist attractions and restaurants our government obligated strict measures on the basis of Dr. Izzy Gertenbluth's thorough knowledge and advice.
Standards for hygiene and cleanliness are taken very seriously including additional steps to ensure your safety (see top of this page).
When the Coronavirus enters Curacao again via tourists originated from low-risk and medium-risk, the island is sufficiently prepared to avoid a complete lockdown as this is the last thing Curacao wants because the island is overall depended on tourism.
