HTA, VASH Release Safety eBrochure

To enhance the safety of our visitors, the HTA worked with the Visitor Aloha Society of Hawai‘i (VASH), an HTA-sponsored traveler’s aid organization, to release an online Safety eBrochure that offers safety tips from state and county agencies.
“We want people who visit the Hawaiian Islands to have a safe and memorable experience,” said Jadie Goo, tourism brand manager. “This project was important for us in getting information to our visitors and will continue to work with the hotels, tour operators and airlines to share this with people visiting Hawaii.”  
Available in English, the Safety eBrochure will be translated into Chinese, Japanese and Korean later this year. It is currently available for download on the HTA’s Travel Smart Hawaii website at We encourage you to download the eBrochure and share this information with your guests.
The HTA’s Travel Smart Hawaii website serves as an online resource for both visitors and residents to access practical information on travel throughout the Hawaiian Islands. In addition to the Safety eBrochure, website content includes pre-arrival travel tips, a guide to customs and visas, and other basic information about the destination and environment. 
The HTA is also producing video greetings for in-flight and in-room hotel viewing, which will include safety tips. Available later this year, this video series will serve as another communications channel to encourage visitors to take proper precautions when traveling throughout the Hawaiian Islands.  

DIACRITICALS recognizes the use of diacritical markings of the (modern) Hawaiian language including the `okina [`] or glottal stop and the kahakō [ō] or macron (e.g., in place names of Hawai`i such as Lāna'i). However, you may notice these diacritical markings have been omitted throughout the website to ensure the best online experience for our visitors. recognizes the importance of using these markings to preserve the language and culture of Hawaii and respectfully uses them in all communications beyond the online platform.
