As of October 15, 2020, all visitors to the Hawaiian Islands must have a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of their flight. The test must be taken within the state of Hawaii or within the jurisdiction of the United States. The test must be a molecular or antigen test.
If you have a test result that is positive, you will be required to quarantine for 14 days. If you have a test result that is negative, you will be allowed to proceed with your vacation.
There are a few exceptions to the 72-hour testing requirement. If you are traveling from an area that does not have a testing site, you may be able to take a test within 48 hours of your flight. You will need to present proof of your negative test result to the airline prior to boarding your flight.
If you are unable to take a test prior to your flight, you will be required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Hawaii.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of Hawaii has implemented a mandatory 14-day quarantine for all visitors and residents arriving from out of state. This means that you will not be able to leave your accommodation or interact with other people for the 14 days that you are in Hawaii.
The only exceptions to this rule are for essential workers, such as medical professionals and airline crew members, who are required to undergo a COVID-19 test within 72 hours of their arrival.
This quarantine is in place in order to protect the residents of Hawaii and to help prevent the spread of the virus. It is important to note that the quarantine is not a travel ban, and you are still able to travel to Hawaii if you are willing to comply with the restrictions.
As of October 15, 2020, all incoming travelers to Hawaii must have a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of their final destination in the state. The test must be taken no more than 72 hours prior to the final destination in Hawaii.
