Pre-Arrival Testing Information for Travelers to Hawaii

All travelers must pre-test within 72 hours prior to flying to Hawaii. Only FDA approved NAAT test processed by a CLIA-certified laboratory will be accepted. All adults (18 years and older) must register on the state of Hawaii Safe Travels digital system. You will be required to upload your negative pre-travel test result and answer a health questionnaire 24 hours prior to your departure.  A negative COVID-19 test result is necessary. Upon arrival at the airport, all travelers will undergo a temperature check and complete an online Safe travels form.

If you plan on flying to another island during your Hawaiian vacation, the mandatory 14-day quarantine period remains in effect for all inter-island travelers, except for traveling to the Island of O’ahu from another Hawaiian island. Guests may be subject to temperature checks (by handheld device and/or non-invasive heat camera) upon entering and exiting the resort. Any guest showing symptoms may be required to follow local health department protocols, including, but not limited to, mandatory quarantine. Because travel restrictions may change in Hawaii, please be sure to frequently visit the Hawaii Department of Health website for the most up to date information and list of trusted NAAT testing partners.

Enhanced Movement Quarantine (EMQ) Program for Kauai

As of January 5, 2021, travelers who participate in the Enhanced Movement Quarantine (EMQ) program shall be exempt from the 10-day mandatory self-quarantine described in Sections IV.B and V of the Governor’s Proclamation if they provide confirmation of negative test results from two separate, approved COVID-19 tests administered to the traveler. Travelers must take a COVID-19 diagnostic test with an emergency use authorization (EUA) from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).  The first test shall be administered within 72 hours from the final leg of departure of their trip to Kaua‘i. The second shall be administered 72 hours or more after their time of entry on Kaua‘i.

Under Kaua’i’s amended Emergency Rule 23, travelers who have been in the State of Hawaii for more than 72 hours, may be exempt from the 10-day quarantine if they can provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken less than 72 hours before inter-island travel, and by following these steps.
