A 10-day mandatory quarantine is still required for trans-Pacific travelers arriving WITHOUT a confirmed negative COVID-19 test taken within the 72 hours before departure of the final leg of their trip to Hawai‘i. Travelers will not be able to obtain a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) upon arrival at any Hawaiʻi airport.
All trans-Pacific travelers who board a plane on the final leg of their trip to the Hawaiian Islands without first securing a negative test will be subject to mandatory quarantine. Tests must be taken with trusted testing and travel partners within 72 hours before the departure of the final leg of your flight. Even if you have been vaccinated, you are still currently required to follow these guidelines.
The negative test result must be uploaded onto the Safe Travels website prior to departure. (It is also recommended that you print out a hard copy as well.) Within your account on the Safe Travels website, you will find a health questionnaire that needs to be filled out within 24 hours of the last leg of your flight. After your negative results have been uploaded and you have completed your questionnaire, a QR code will be emailed to you. Keep this handy, you will need to show this QR code at the airport.
Travelers without a negative test result before boarding the final leg of their flight MUST quarantine for 10 days or the length of their stay, whichever is shorter. For full details, visit the website Here
The state of Hawaii will ONLY accept test results from TRUSTED TESTING AND TRAVEL PARTNERS. For full details, visit the website Here
After you make airline reservations, what’s the first step you take to prepare for your Hawaii trip? All adults (18 years and older) must register on the state of Hawaii Safe Travels website. You will be required to upload your negative pre-travel test result and answer a health questionnaire. Each child traveling with an adult should be included in the adult’s Safe Travels form. Minors five years and older must take the pre-travel test. The traveler is responsible for the cost of the pre-travel test.

Travelers who do not secure a negative COVID-19 test BEFORE departure will be subject to the same mandatory 10-day quarantine regulation as other trans-Pacific travelers.
The negative test result must be uploaded onto Safe Travels prior to departure and it’s also recommended to have a hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawai‘i.
