Travel Resources > COVID-19 Hawaii Travel Updates

  • As of 10 Nov 2021: There have been 85,360 cases of COVID-19 in Hawaii to date, resulting in 968 deaths. Average daily new cases 99 island-wide (48 Oahu, 12 Maui County, 17 Kauai and 22 Hawaii Island).

Hawaii officially welcomed tourists back from 1 Nov 2021.

Of course, there are some entry requirements in place. Per the press release:

  • NON-U.S. citizens traveling directly to Hawaii from an international destination 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 United States.
  • U.S. citizens flying directly to Hawaii from an international destination have two options:
  1. Fully vaccinated travelers must provide proof of vaccination and present a test taken within three (3) days of boarding flight to U.S.; OR
  2. 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 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.

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
International passengers entering the U.S. from another state or territory will be treated as domestic travelers when entering the State of Hawaii. The Safe Travels Hawaii program remains in place for domestic travelers.
