Keeping Hawai‘i Safe. Today and in the future.

Whether a returning resident or a visitor to the Hawaiian Islands, we want to ensure that all travelers remain safe and healthy.

Hawai‘i’s 10-day mandatory self-quarantine remains in place for all trans-Pacific passengers, but we are excited that new exceptions are now available as a direct result of Hawaii’s robust vaccination rate. Travelers entering the state from the U.S. and its Territories who have been fully vaccinated in the United States (including its Territories) may bypass quarantine without a pre-travel test. The vaccination record document must be uploaded to Safe Travels and printed out prior to departure and the traveler must have a hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawaiʻi. The State of Hawai‘i will also accept vaccine records that are digitally validated by Digital Health Pass Partners (CLEAR and CommonPass). Travelers who use one of the State’s partners to link their digitally validated vaccine records with Safe Travels may enjoy expedited processing at the airport (no secondary visual inspection of paper vaccine records). Travelers who were fully vaccinated in Hawai‘i are already eligible for this exception.

We continue to welcome other travelers to the Hawaiian Islands with a pre-travel test.

Travelers wishing to use the pre-travel test to bypass quarantine must have a negative result from a test taken from a Trusted Testing and Travel Partner no more than 72 hours BEFORE beginning the final leg of their trip. Anyone without a negative test result or U.S. vaccination PRIOR to departure must quarantine upon arrival. The State of Hawai‘i will also accept vaccine records that are digitally validated by Digital Health Pass Partners.

The negative test result must be uploaded onto Safe Travels or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawai‘i.

When the state reaches a 70% vaccination rate, all restrictions on travel will be lifted. Specific dates will be announced as milestones are reached.

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, Korea, Taiwan, Philippines and Tahiti, only tests from Trusted Testing Partners will be accepted for purposes of bypassing the State’s 10-day traveler quarantine including any tests verified through the State’s Digital Health Pass Partners – CLEAR and CommonPass. 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.
