Hawaii To Welcome International Travelers In Alignment With Federal Requirements

Starting Monday, November 8, the state of Hawaii will welcome international travelers under the new federal requirements.

Non-U.S. citizens who are traveling directly to Hawaii from an international destination must present their vaccination records and negative COVID-19 test results within three days of boarding a flight to the United States.

For U.S. citizens flying directly to Hawaii from an international destination, they have two options: provide proof of vaccination or provide proof of negative COVID-19 test result within one day of boarding a flight to the United States.

There will be no additional State of Hawaii requirements for travelers from an international destination. If the passengers fail to meet the stated requirement above, they will not be allowed to board the flight.

For travelers from another U.S. state or territory, the Safe Travels program will remain in place.

The current Safe Travels Hawaii requirements includes: creating a Safe Travels Hawaii account on a digital device, entering trip details, filling out a health form and attesting that all information is correct.

Domestic travelers may bypass the state’s mandatory 10-day quarantine if they upload a vaccination document or upload a negative NAAT test result taken by a Trusted Travel Partner within three days of departure.

“Thanks to the people of Hawaii for their patience and for taking precautions to keep our communities safe,” said Governor David Ige.

“As more and more people are vaccinated, we are moving to ease pandemic mitigation measures, including travel restrictions, in a way that ensures the health and safety of our communities.”
