State of Hawaii Travel Procedures
TRAVELING TO HAWAII
- What do I need to do if I am planning a trip 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, a pre-travel testing option will allow travelers a 14-day quarantine alternative.
- How do I avoid a 14-day quarantine while in Hawaii? 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.
- What types of COVID-19 tests are accepted and where can I get a test? 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).
- Can travelers get a COVID-19 test upon arrival? No. However, if symptomatic, you maybe be offered a test, not in place of pre-test program.
- Do minors need to get tested? Yes. 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.
