We are excited to welcome travelers back to the Hawaiian Islands!

The Presidential Proclamation and CDC Order is effective November 8, 2021, for travel from international airports to the United States. “Direct International Travelers” will no longer need to have a Safe Travel Account to present upon arrival to Hawaii. “Non-Direct International Travel” will be considered domestic travel and passengers must have a Safe Travels account. More information on international travel to Hawai’i at:

Transpacific travelers who have recently recovered from COVID-19 may also be eligible to be exempt from the travel quarantine. More information can be found at:

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Travel Requirements:

What happens I’m vaccinated but my children are not? 

Children ages 5-11 may bypass the quarantine requirements by following state and county testing protocols and testing negative for COVID-19 72 hours prior to arrival.

What happens if my flight is delayed by weather or mechanical issues? Will my test result be accepted?

A traveler who takes a test within 72 hours from the scheduled final leg of departure, and has a negative test result, and whose departure is delayed by the airline, will not be subject to the state 10-day quarantine. This provision will not apply to any additional county-imposed quarantine rules separate and apart from the state’s pre-test waiver.

Traveler’s 72-hour window will still be approved when the flight time changes, or delays are caused by the airline. Instruct traveler to hold onto original board pass and inform airport screener upon deplaning (they should already be aware before landing). Traveler to input new/rescheduled flight information into Safe Travels account, which should match updated boarding pass.

Traveler ALERT: The State of Hawaii DOES NOT charge fees to apply for the Safe Travels program, or to create a Safe Travels account, or to access the Safe Travels application, or for Safe Travels information.
