COVID-19 Hawaii Travel Requirements

Starting October 15, 2020, travelers can bypass Hawaii's mandatory 10-day self-quarantine with a negative COVID-19 taken no more than 72 hours before your flight departure time. If you have a multi-city flight itinerary, the departure time is from the last city you leave before arriving at a Hawaii airport (e.g. if your travel is from Chicago to Seattle to Honolulu, the departure time to look at is your flight from Seattle). The test must be an FDA-authorized NAAT test from a CLIA-certified lab (see below info about trusted travel partners).

This COVID-19 test requirement applies to travelers five years of age and older (children ages 0-4 years won't need to be tested). No COVID-19 testing will be provided upon arrival at the airport. The 10-day self-quarantine will remain in place for those who choose not to get pre-tested.

Travelers (age 18 years and older) must also create an online user account and register with the State of Hawaii Safe Travels Hawaii program, located at

The negative test result must be uploaded onto the Safe Travels Hawaii account prior to departure or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawaii. Failure to do either will result in a 10-day self-quarantine upon arrival in Hawaii.

Upon your completion of the form, a QR code will be emailed to you for each leg of your trip, which you need to present to airport personnel upon deplaning in Hawaii. The QR code can be either on paper or on your mobile phone and must also be presented with a legally valid photo ID. 

All incoming trans-Pacific Hawaii travelers will receive temperature checks upon arrival. Temperature scans will be taken via thermal temperature screening. Photos will be temporarily retained only for persons with elevated temperatures of 100.4 degrees F and above for identification and additional assessments by airport representatives. Face masks are required in all Hawaii airports and when entering places of business (allowances are given for young children and those with health conditions). More information is available on

The counties of Kaua‘i, Maui, and the island of Hawai‘i are each managing their own inter-county travel quarantine processes. If you wish to seek an exemption from the quarantine requirements of these counties, please contact the appropriate county office: County of Kaua‘i, County of MauiCounty of Hawaii.

The state of Hawaii 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. A negative COVID-19 test result is required prior to departure to avoid quarantine in Hawaii.
