All incoming travelers will be required to have their temperatures checked & complete a health questionnaire using the Safe Travels online program(link is external) before they can leave any Hawaii airport. Beginning 10/15, a pre-travel testing option will allow travelers a 14-day quarantine alternative.
  • How do I avoid a 14-day quarantine while in Hawaii? You must provide a negative COVID-19 test result must be provided upon arrival.
