Hawaii Tourism door wide open

Travelers should bring a hard copy of their vaccination documentation to show screeners at the gate prior to boarding and/or upon arrival in Hawaii. Screeners will review and verify the vaccination documents, match photo IDs, name, and DOB, as well as confirm that the attestations are signed.

Children under 5 years old are not required to test and will not be quarantined if traveling with an adult who has a pre-travel test exception or a vaccination exception.

Spokesperson for the Hawaii Dept. of Transportation

International Travelers

Anyone arriving in the United States with valid testing from another country is not automatically accepted for travel to Hawaii.

A test has to be administrated from an approved facility in the United States making it technically impossible to go on a through flight from a foreign country without stopping for a day or more to get the test and avoid quarantine.

There are approved facilities in Japan making it the only international exception.
