    The existing rule is sort of irrelevant isn't it as Bonaire airspace is closed to high risk countries. My concern is what is required once airspace opens back up. I can't meet a 72 requirement at this time in my home state so, if it is no longer a requirement, thats one hoop I won't have to jump through.

    This may help. A new release from InfoBonaire says...

    The reason for the Emergency Ordinance is that Aruba has opened its borders to high-risk countries. This makes it possible for travelers from a high-risk country to travel to Bonaire within 14 days after a stopover in Aruba. The emergency ordinance has been introduced to enforce..."

    This links to: https://www.infobonaire.com/emergenc...or-bonaire_233

    So if you go to Aruba, say, you can come Bonaire after 14 day, as I read it. Am I right?

    You're right but its irrelevant because the vast majority are not going to do that. Its tantamount to sneaking onto Bonaire. Whats critical are the requirements once Bonaire's air space opens back up to so called high risk countries. My concern is, once that happens, will the 72 hour requirement be in place? Apparently not based on my reading of the Bonaire Reporter....

    Can anyone point out the list of high risk and low risk countries? Where, for example, does Canada or the UK fit in now?

    Low-risk: European Netherlands, Germany France, Belgium, and Switzerland. The only low-risk countries in the western hemisphere are Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten, and the other BES islands (St. Eustatius and Saba). This can change at any moment.

    No word yet on UK or Canada.

    Noticed that a new online Health form was posted on BonaireNu today.. wondering if they will announce opening up to us high risk countries, based on the questions asked...probably wishful thinking

    A guest from the USA was able to travel via Aruba to Curacao.
    he was diagnosed with corona.
    Not a good eample voor Bonaire

    On Aruba, 3 guests from the USA were tested positive on Corona.
    I wish people had themselves tested, before leaving the USA
