Starting on Nov. 24, travelers wishing to bypass the 14-day mandatory quarantine must have their COVID-19 test results – from a trusted testing partner – prior to departure for the State of Hawaiʻi.
The state of Hawaii will ONLY accept test results from TRUSTED TESTING AND TRAVEL PARTNERS. For full details, visit the website Here
The new policy applies to domestic transpacific flights and international flights departing from locations in which the State of Hawaiʻi pre-testing programs are in place.
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. (Minors four years and younger do NOT need to take the pre-travel test.) The traveler is responsible for the cost of the pre-travel test.
When do you need to take the test? Within 72 hours from the final leg of departure. If you have a multi-city itinerary, it’s the departure time at the last city before arriving at a Hawaii airport.
How can travelers access the ONLY tests accepted by the state of Hawaii, the TRUSTED TESTING AND TRAVEL PARTNERS?
An updated list of the trusted testing and travel partners is available on the Hawaii State Department of Health COVID-19 Website.
