The State of Hawai‘i Safe Travels Hawai‘i program is a multilayered process designed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community from trans-Pacific visitor and resident passengers arriving at airports/ports across the Islands.

This enhanced entry into Hawai‘i includes a pre-travel testing program, the Mandatory State of Hawai‘i Travel and Health Form, and temperature screening at all Hawai‘i airports upon arrival. Beginning April 5, Kauaʻi rejoined the Safe Travels trans-Pacific program. Travelers to Maui must download the AlohaSafe Alert App in addition to other requirements. Visit mauicounty.gov/2417/Travel-to-Maui-County for details.

The state of Hawai‘i will ONLY accept Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) from a certified Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) lab test results from TRUSTED TESTING AND TRAVEL PARTNERS.

A 10-day mandatory quarantine will be required for trans-Pacific travelers arriving WITHOUT a confirmed negative COVID-19 test taken within the 72 hours before departure of the final leg of their trip to Hawai‘i. Travelers will not be able to obtain a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) upon arrival at any Hawaiʻi airport.

All trans-Pacific travelers who board a plane on the final leg of their trip to the Hawaiian Islands without first securing a negative test will be subject to mandatory quarantine. Tests must be taken with trusted testing and travel partners with 72 hours of departure.

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.

Travelers without a negative test result before boarding the final leg of their flight MUST quarantine for 10 days or the length of their stay, whichever is shorter.

It is important travelers consider the duration and considerable expense of possible quarantine before embarking.

Travelers from Japan, Canada and Korea may also bypass the State of Hawaii’s mandatory 10-day quarantine by securing a pre-travel test from a trusted testing and travel partner 72 hours prior to departure on the final leg of their journey to Hawai‘i.

Travelers from Japan, Canada and Korea who do not secure a negative COVID-19 test BEFORE departure will be subject to the same mandatory 10-day quarantine regulation as other trans-Pacific travelers.

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 January 26, 2021 does not impact the Safe Travels program. For international travelers coming to the State of Hawai‘i, only tests from Trusted Testing Partners will be accepted for purposes of bypassing the State’s 10-day traveler quarantine.

On January 21, 2021, the President of the United States issued an executive order related to travel. For the time being, no changes to the Safe Travels program.

For travelers from Canada, please visit Air Canada or WestJet.

For travelers from Japan, please visit Hawai‘i Tourism Japan (Japanese).

For travelers from Korea, please visit Hawai‘i Tourism Korea (Korean)

At this time, there are no other enhanced entry options available for international travel.
