Dear families and friends of dolphin aid,

The therapy center CDTC on Curaçao continues to provide dolphin therapies.
Please find the conditions and entry requirements Curaçao here and here.
Germany is currently a country with a low COVID-19 risk for Curaçao. Entrants from this country category can enter Curaçao with a complete COVID-19 vaccination and presentation of the European digital vaccination certificate (EU DCC via “DCC cross border scanner app NL”) without additional tests. Unvaccinated people need a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test to enter Curaçao. These must be deep nasal or throat swabs carried out 48 hours or 24 hours before departure by recognized laboratories. In addition, an antigen test is required 3 days after arrival on Curaçao. Symptom-free children up to 12 years of age do not need a test / proof.

The IDC therapy center in Florida, USA is currently closed for visits due to COVID-19 and offers Virtual Dolphin Programs. As soon as dolphin therapies can take place here again, we will be happy to inform you.

The current entry regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany require for all travelers over the age of 12, from all countries, with all means of transport, a COVID-19 negative proof in accordance with the 3G rule. This means either fully vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 disease or tested negative.
