COVID-19 Hawaii Travel Requirements

Effective November 8, 2021, the state of Hawaii will align with federal international requirements and welcome all vaccinated international travelers. Non-U.S. citizens traveling directly to Hawaii must present BOTH a vaccination record AND a negative COVID-19 test result (NAAT or antigen) within three days of boarding a flight to the U.S.

U.S. citizens flying directly to Hawaii from an international destination have two options: (1) fully vaccinated U.S. citizens must provide proof of vaccination AND a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of boarding a flight to Hawaii OR (2) if not vaccinated, a negative COVID-19 test result within one day of boarding a flight to Hawaii.

The Hawaii Safe Travels Program, located at remains in place for domestic travelers. To avoid the mandatory 10-day self-quarantine, domestic travelers must upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination OR have a negative COVID-19 result from a trusted testing partner, taken within 72 hours. All vaccines approved or authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and vaccines listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization will be accepted.

Travelers not participating in the Hawaii Safe Travels Program must quarantine for 10 days or the length of their stay, whichever is shorter. From November 8, 2021, this will apply only to passengers arriving from a U.S. state or territory. 

All incoming 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
