Traveling to Hawaii


The State of Hawaii's online Safe Travels program is mandatory for all* travelers. The form, which collects the required health and travel information, is critical to protecting the health of residents and visitors alike. Click here for FAQs and instructions.

*Beginning Nov. 8, international travelers flying directly to Hawaii do not need to complete a Safe Travels application. The airlines will screen passengers prior to their departure to the U.S. Please make sure you meet the CDC requirements.

Travelers are encouraged to enter their information, details, proof of vaccination and COVID-19 test result in advance of their flight. Once their health information is entered 24 hours before departure, travelers receive a QR code via email. The QR code on their mobile device or printed on paper gets scanned by the airport screener upon arrival.

To qualify for the vaccination exemption:

1.  You must be fully vaccinated prior to boarding your last leg of flight to Hawaii
2.  You are considered fully vaccinated on the 14th day after the vaccination series.
How to “calculate”: You are considered fully vaccinated on the 14th day after the vaccination series was completed. For example, if your last dose was any time on October 1st, then October 15th would be the first day that you meet the 14-day requirement.

New features and data elements will be added in future phases, as the Safe Travels process and State travel requirements evolve. Travelers without smart phones or computers can ask a friend or relative for assistance or receive assistance at the arrival airport. Travelers without email addresses will need to create one on an email service to comply with the conditions of quarantine.
