CTB response to news article about CDC advisory 


WILLEMSTAD- March 5, 2021 – Recently the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) took notice of the fact that Curaçao has been included in headlines in the US market citing a “Level 4” advisory as issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. While the notice was highlighted by media on March 1, this is not a new development or a sign of deteriorating circumstances, as the level 4 designation for Curaçao is from fall 2020. Curaçao, as well as many countries in the Caribbean region, share this same designation by the CDC. The fact that this news is being highlighted now is taken very seriously by the CTB and private sector partners, as it could have negative consequences for bookings from the US to Curaçao. 


Travel restrictions for travelers from the entire US states were lifted by the Curaçao Government as of January 1st. Since then the market has been gradually picking up considering the current airlift from this particular market. As soon as the CTB took notice of the headlines in the US market we reached out to the media who highlighted this news to discuss this issue with them and present them with the current facts. Besides that, a statement was sent out to all US travel partners highlighting the fact that in the last 28 days, the island has maintained a positivity rate of less than 3%. The statement also covers the fact that, the CTB implements several programs designed with Curaçao’s visitors and locals at the forefront, stressing complete transparency and continuously updating its website,, with the latest travel updates. CTB also widely publicizes the island’s physical distancing efforts, entry protocols and new tools available to visitors. Furthermore, the island’s hotels, restaurants and attractions have adapted their offerings to meet the ever-evolving needs of today’s travelers. 


The CTB will continue to monitor this situation closely and will take the actions necessary to mitigate any possible effect on future bookings to Curaçao.
