Visiting Hawaii – Starting December 11th, 2020
In summary, as of December 11th:
All travelers ages five and over will be required to take a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) from a certified Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) lab in order to bypass the State of Hawai‘i’s 14-day mandatory quarantine.
The State of Hawaiʻi will accept test results ONLY from TRUSTED TESTING AND TRAVEL PARTNERS
The test will need to be taken no more than 72 hours before your flight departure time. If you have a multi-city flight itinerary, the departure time is from the last city you leave before arriving at a Hawai‘i airport (e.g. if your travel is from Chicago to Seattle to Honolulu, the departure time to look at is your flight from Seattle).
Once you receive your negative pre-travel test result, you will need to upload the result to your Safe Travels Hawai‘i account. This step is crucial, as it will be the only means for airport officials to verify your Safe Travel Hawai‘i information upon your arrival in Hawai‘i.
The negative test result must be uploaded onto the Safe Travels Hawai‘i account prior to departure or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawai‘i. Failure to do either will result in a 14-day quarantine upon arrival in Hawai‘i.
If you receive an indeterminate result or inconclusive result prior to departure, you will be placed in 14-day quarantine upon arrival.
Upon your completion of the form, a QR code will be emailed to you for each leg of your trip, which you need to present to airport personnel upon deplaning in Hawaiʻi. The QR code can be either on paper or on your mobile phone, and must also be presented with a legally valid photo ID. Obtaining your QR code(s) for Hawaiʻi airport processing PRIOR TO departure will significantly reduce your arrival airport screening.
If your test results are not yet available when you arrive in Hawai‘i, you will need to quarantine at your accommodations for 14 days.
Completing the state of Hawaiʻi’s Safe Travels Hawaiʻi program application form and obtaining your QR code(s) for Hawaiʻi airport processing PRIOR TO departure will significantly reduce your arrival airport screening and processing time.
Safe Travels Hawai‘i Registration:
Prior to your arrival, if you are an adult (age 18 years or older) you will need to create an online user account and register with the State of Hawai‘i Safe Travels Hawai‘i program.
