Aruba is very receptive to U.S. products. At the present time, Aruba has no food-specific legislation to regulate imported foods. U.S. standards for food and agricultural products are fully accepted. Import licenses are required for select agricultural products. In addition, meat products imported from the United States require a USDA export certificate. Health authorities also require that first-time shipments of perishables be accompanied by a sanitary certificate from the country of origin, after which the requirement is waived as long as the subsequent shipments are from the same supplier. U.S. exports of agricultural products to Aruba generally clear customs quite quickly and without obstacles.
