Latest Update on Hawai’i COVID-19 Travel Requirements

UPDATED 7/13/2020

As Hawai’i slowly starts to reopen and welcome guests back to our island again, it’s important that we all feel safe and stay healthy. Here’s the latest update on the COVID-19 requirements if you’re planning on traveling.

For Out-of-State Visitors

The state will delay by at least a month the planned Aug. 1 reopening of Hawaii’s tourism industry with a traveler pre-testing program, Gov. David Ige has recently announced.

During a legislative briefing Monday, Ige said he would be extending the 14-day mandatory quarantine for all trans-Pacific travelers through the end of August as the State continues to hammer out the details of how the testing program would work ― and ensure that visitors don’t slip through the cracks.

For Hawai’i Residents

On June 10, Governor Ige announced that Hawaii residents will no longer be required to self-quarantine when traveling interisland beginning on June 16, 2020, allowing Hawaii residents to travel more freely around the state.

Also announced on June 10, 2020, short-term vacation rental properties will be allowed to resume limited operations and rent to inter-island visitors only, beginning on June 16, 2020.
