Travel Restrictions

Updates Requirements for Entry into Hawaii


Travel Restrictions are currently in effect for all the major Hawaiian Islands, including the islands of Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Hawaii, Molokai, and Lanai. This includes trans-Pacific travel restrictions required for all travelers not currently vaccinated within the U.S.

Hawaii’s 10-day mandatory self-quarantine remains in place for all incoming passengers, with vaccination exemptions granted as of July 8th, 2021.

For international travelers coming to the State of Hawaii, only tests from Trusted Testing Partners will be accepted to bypass the 10-day traveler quarantine.

Vaccine Exemptions

As of July 8th, travelers from the continental United States who were fully vaccinated in the U.S. may bypass the quarantine without taking a pre-travel test.

Options for Non-vaccinated & International Travelers

Pre-travel testing is available for non-vaccinated & international travelers as an alternative to Hawaii’s mandatory 10-day quarantine restrictions. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test from a state-approved trusted testing partner is required.

Children below 5 years are not required to submit a test.

The negative test result must be taken 72 hours from the final leg of departure and must be uploaded onto the Safe Travels website or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand upon arrival in Hawaii.

Safe Travels Program

The Hawaii Tourism Authority has stated that once the state achieves a 70% vaccination rate, all restrictions on travel will be lifted and the Safe Travels program will come to an end.
