Enjoy a Safe Stay on Bonaire
Bon Biní na Boneiru: Welcome!
To date Bonaire has been lucky not to have had a major long-lasting outbreak of COVID-19, primarily because we have implemented measures and have made it difficult for people from other countries to come to Bonaire. This was of vital importance for us. Bonaire is a small community and our health care has its limitations. Now that the borders have opened again we kindly but firmly request that you help us to keep coronavirus on Bonaire under control. Thank you for your cooperation. We wish you a pleasant and safe stay on our beautiful island.

If you cannot present a negative test result, you will be quarantined for 10 days upon arrival on the island. Additionally, you must complete a health declaration form for the Public Health Department and this must be done 48 to 72 hours before departure at: www.bonairepublichealth.org.
