Hawaiʻi Safe Travel Guidelines Remain in Place
Travelers are strongly advised to take a pre-travel COVID-19 test from a trusted testing and travel partner PRIOR to the final leg of their trip to the State of Hawai‘i. Trans-Pacific travelers arriving WITHOUT a confirmed negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of departure are subject to a mandatory 10-day quarantine.
All travelers must have a negative test result BEFORE beginning the final leg of their trip. Anyone without a negative test result PRIOR to departure must quarantine upon arrival.
The negative test result must be uploaded onto Safe Travels prior to departure or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawai‘i.
The CDC Order that went into effect on Jan. 26, 2021 does not impact the Safe Travels program. For international travelers arriving in the State of Hawai‘i from Japan, Canada and Korea, only tests from Trusted Testing Partners will be accepted for purposes of bypassing the State’s 10-day traveler quarantine. Travelers originating from any other international destination and coming directly to Hawai‘i do not have the ability to test for purposes of bypassing the State’s 10-day traveler quarantine.
On Jan. 21, 2021, the President of the United States issued an executive order related to travel. For the time being, there are no changes to the SafeTravels program.
