State of Hawai’i travel protocol update

Posted: July 10, 2021

Below is the latest update from the State of Hawaii Covid-19 Portal. Hawai’i is now allowing fully vaccinated travelers from the U.S. States and territories to bypass quarantine and negative Covid testing requirements. Please read the information below.

Hawai‘i’s 10-day mandatory self-quarantine remains in place for all trans-Pacific passengers, but we are excited that new exceptions are now available as a direct result of Hawaii’s robust vaccination rate. Travelers entering the state from the U.S. and its Territories who have been fully vaccinated in the United States (including its Territories) may bypass quarantine without a pre-travel test. The vaccination record document must be uploaded to Safe Travels or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawai‘i. The State of Hawai‘i will also accept vaccine records that are digitally validated by Digital Health Pass Partners.
