State of Hawaii Travel Procedures
TRAVELING TO HAWAII
- All incoming travelers are required to have their temperatures checked & complete a health questionnaire using the Safe Travels online program before they can leave the airport. Beginning 10/15/21, a pre-travel testing option will allow travelers a 14-day quarantine alternative.
- A negative COVID-19 test result must be provided upon arrival. Hawaii requires travelers take an FDA-authorized NAAT test from a CLIA certified lab within 72 hours from the final leg of departure. Travelers will have their temperatures checked upon arrival and must fill out a travel and health form on the Safe Travels online program. Travelers who arrive without proof of a valid negative COVID-19 NAAT will be subject to the state’s strict 14-day mandatory self-quarantine.
- FDA-authorized NAAT tests, processed by a CLIA-certified laboratory are the only types of coronavirus tests currently approved by the state of Hawaii. The state of Hawaii will ONLY accept test results from one of the state’s trusted testing and travel partners (listed here).
- Minors five years and older must take the pre-travel test. (Minors four years and younger do NOT need to take the pre-travel test.)
- All visitors are required to wear a mask (allowances given for young children and those with health conditions) at all airports and until they are in their room in their confirmed place of lodging.
- Travelers entering the state who have been fully vaccinated in Hawai‘i may bypass quarantine without a pre-travel test. The vaccination record document must be uploaded to Safe Travels online program or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawai‘i. Beginning June 15, 2021 at 2 a.m. HST, travelers who received vaccination in Hawaiʻi will be able to upload their vaccination document into the Safe Travels Digital Platform to receive exception from quarantine.
