  • Hawaii remains open to visitors thanks to the Safe Travels Hawaii program! In order to bypass the State of Hawaii’s 10-day mandatory self-quarantine, travelers must take a pre-travel COVID-19 test from a trusted testing and travel partner (available on the U.S. mainland, Canada, Japan, Korea and Taiwan) 72-hours prior to the final leg of their trip, and get a negative result returned prior to boarding their flight. An online Travel and Health Form must be completed and temperature screening at all Hawaii airports. Note, these are umbrella rules for the State of Hawaii, in addition, each island has its own entry and arrival protocols to follow. For example, Maui has a post-arrival COVID-19 testing program for transpacific travelers.
  • Oahu remains in Tier 4 of the Honolulu Reopening Strategy.
