EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 8, 2021
Domestic Travel: The Safe Travels Hawaii program remains in place for domestic travelers. Travelers will need to upload a negative COVID test result or a vaccination record document to the state’s Safe Travels website prior to departure AND have a hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawaii.
(Travelers are considered fully vaccinated on the 15th day after the completion of their vaccine.)
Current Safe Travels Hawaii requirements for domestic travelers include:
1) Creating a Safe Travels Hawaii account on a digital device
2) Entering trip details
3) Filling out a health form, and attesting that all information is correct.
Travelers may bypass the state’s mandatory 10-day quarantine in one of two ways:
1) Upload a vaccination document to the Safe Travels website; or
2) Upload a negative NAAT test result from a Trusted Travel Partner within 72 hours of the last leg of your flight to Hawaii
(Adults 18 years and older must register on the State of Hawaii Safe Travels website. Each child traveling with an adult should be included in the adult’s Safe Travels form. Unvaccinated minors five years and older must take the pre-travel test. The traveler is responsible for the cost of the pre-travel test.)
International Travel for U.S. citizens flying directly to Hawaii from an international destination have two options:
Fully vaccinated travelers must provide proof of vaccination and present a test taken within three (3) days of boarding flight to U.S.; OR
Travelers not fully vaccinated must provide proof of negative COVID-19 test result within one (1) day of boarding flight to U.S.
There will be no additional State of Hawaii requirements for passengers flying directly into Hawaii from an international destination. The airlines will screen passengers prior to their departure to the U.S. If foreign passengers fail to meet BOTH requirements and if U.S. citizens fail to meet ONE of the two requirements, they will not be allowed to board the flight. Once in Hawaii, the CDC will conduct compliance checks.
International Travel for NON-U.S. citizens traveling directly to Hawaii from an international destination must present BOTH vaccination records AND a negative COVID-19 test result (NAAT or antigen) taken within three days of boarding a flight to the United States. There will be no additional State of Hawaiʻi requirements for passengers flying directly into Hawaiʻi from an international destination. The airlines will screen passengers prior to their departure to the U.S. International passengers entering the U.S. from another state or territory will be treated as domestic travelers when entering the State of Hawai‘i.

Note: Tests do NOT have to be done with Trusted Travel Partners under the new international federal requirements, but they MUST be done with a Trusted Travel Partner for unvaccinated domestic travel.
Non-Direct International Travel to Hawaii: Starting Nov. 8 international passengers entering the U.S. from another state
or territory will be treated as domestic travelers when entering the State of Hawaii.
Also, beginning on Nov. 8, the State of Hawaii, in alignment with the federal government, will accept vaccines approved or authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and vaccines listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization. A list of currently accepted vaccines is posted on the CDC’s website.
The test must be taken by a Trusted Travel Partner (TTP) within 72 hours of departure for the State of Hawaii.
