Travelers vaccinated in the U.S. or U.S. Territories may participate in the exception program starting on the 15th day after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine — or starting the 15th day after they’ve received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

When asked by eTurboNews, it was made clear that vaccination passes are not accepted by foreign authorities.

Hawaii-bound travelers will need to upload one of three vaccination documents to a Safe Travels Hawaii account they set up, prior to traveling to the islands. One of the following documents must be uploaded:

  • A CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.
  • VAMS (Vaccination Administration Management System) printout.
  • DOD DD Form 2766C.

The Safe Travels digital platform will ask for an online legal attestations on its website to confirm the uploaded documentation is true and accurate.
