Traveling to Hawaii – State of Hawaii Safe Travels

Aloha! The State of Hawai‘i is ending is COVID-19 rules for domestic flights.

NOTICE: At the end of the day, March 25, 2022, the Safe Travels Hawai‘i program concluded. Beginning on March 26, 2022, there will be no COVID-related requirements for arriving domestic passengers. It’s been a long time coming and we are very happy that the restrictions are being lifted at this time.

Travelers from the U.S. or its Territories not participating in Safe Travels MUST quarantine for five days or the length of your stay, whichever is shorter.

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

Individuals arriving from the U.S. or its Territories who are up to date on their vaccination may enter Hawaiʻi without pre-travel testing/quarantine starting the 14th day after the completion of their vaccination. The vaccination record document must be uploaded onto 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 (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). More information on the FAQ page.

Hawaii Airport ProtocolsThe pre-travel testing program remains available for all travelers from the U.S. or its Territories who are NOT vaccinated.

Travelers from the U.S. and its Territories who board a plane on the final leg of their trip to the Hawaiian Islands without first securing a negative test within 72 hours before departure from a Trusted Testing and Travel Partner will be subject to mandatory quarantine.

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, and Digital Health Pass Partners AZOVACLEAR and CommonPass. Travelers will not be able to obtain a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) upon arrival at any Hawaiʻi airport.

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