Hawaii’s 10-day mandatory self-quarantine remains in place for only domestic travel from the U.S. and its Territories. Travelers entering the state who have been fully vaccinated 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 Hawaii. The State of Hawaii will also accept vaccine records that are digitally validated by Digital Health Pass Partners (AZOVACLEAR 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).

The State of Hawaii is in alignment with federal international requirements for passengers flying directly into Hawai‘i from an international destination and  there are no additional State of Hawaii requirements. The airlines will screen passengers prior to their departure to the U.S. International passengers entering the U.S. from another state or territory will be treated as domestic travelers when entering the State of Hawai‘i.

We continue to welcome other travelers to the Hawaiian Islands with a pre-travel test. This applies only for domestic passengers from the U.S. and its Territories.

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 test results 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 Hawaii.
