Traveling Testing & Quarantine
Trans-pacific travelers are subject to the mandatory 10-day quarantine, unless they have an exemption or a negative COVID-19 NAAT (Nucleic Acid Amplification Test) test result from a State of Hawaii “trusted partner”. Please read through the State’s Safe Travels Program before booking a trip. Travelers who are vaccinated in the United States may submit their vaccination card to the Safe Travels program to be exempted from quarantine upon arriving in Hawaii.
The official quarantine exemption timeline begins the moment your Safe Travels QR code is scanned at the airport. The State of Hawaii will require all travelers to upload their negative test results before boarding their fight to Hawaii.
While you are in quarantine, you must remain in your hotel room. You may use your room’s personal lanai (balcony). Meals and other necessities must be ordered and delivered to your room. You may leave your room only in the event of an emergency or to seek emergency medical attention.
Travelers that are subject to quarantine are not allowed to rent a car or use public transportation. Please utilize private transportation to your accommodations where you will be quarantining. Quarantine travelers must go straight to place of quarantine from the airport, with no detours.
Military - In order to qualify for a COVID-19 exemption to the 10-day quarantine, military on active duty must submit their military-issued travel order upon deplaning in Hawaii at the time of screening. Your spouse and dependents are subject to a 10-day quarantine or the State of Hawaii Pre-Travel Testing Program as described above.
