Prior to arrival, all adults 18 years of age and older are required to create an online account and register with the State of Hawai‘i’s Safe Travels Hawai‘i program. The names of each child/children traveling with an adult registering will need to be included in the adult’s Safe Travels Hawai‘i program application form.
Travelers five years of age and older will need to take a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) from a certified Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) lab. Test results will only be accepted from Trusted Testing and Travel Partners. Please also inquire directly with your air carrier to learn whether it offers pre-travel testing programs and is a Trusted Partner of the State of Hawai‘i’s Pre-Travel Testing Program.
You will be required to complete testing no more than 72 hours before your flight’s departure time. If you have a multicity flight itinerary, the departure time is from the last city you leave before arriving at a Hawai‘i airport (e.g. if your travel is from Chicago to Seattle to Honolulu, the departure time to look at is your flight from Seattle).
You must upload your negative pre-travel test result to your Safe Travels Hawai‘i program account. You will also need to enter each leg of your travel schedule to avoid delays in Hawai‘i during the screening process. Upon your completion of the form, a QR code for each leg of your trip will be emailed to you to present to airport personnel upon deplaning in Hawai‘i either on paper or on your mobile phone. You will also need to present a legally valid photo ID. Completing the state of Hawaiʻi’s Safe Travels Hawaiʻi program application form and obtaining your QR code(s) for Hawaiʻi airport processing PRIOR TO departure will significantly reduce your arrival airport screening and processing time.
Travelers must upload negative COVID-19 test results to the Safe Travels Hawaii platform prior to departure or print out the negative test result prior to departure and have it in hand on arrival to Hawai‘i in order to avoid the 10-day quarantine. If test results are not available before boarding the final leg of the trip, or are indeterminate, the traveler must quarantine for 10 days or the length of the stay, whichever is shorter. Travelers will not be able to exit quarantine upon receiving test results.

If you need assistance with logging in or any technical issues, call the Safe Travels Hawai‘i Program Service Desk toll-free at 1-855-599-0888 between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Hawai‘i Standard Time. Domestic and international callers are accepted.
If you receive a POSITIVE TEST RESULT while you are in quarantine in Hawaiʻi, you will be required to go into isolation until you recover and at least 24 hours have passed since symptoms such as fever have resolved without the use of fever reducing medicine or at least 10 days have passed since the start of symptoms, whichever is longer. Health services guidance will be provided to you by the Hawai‘i State Department of Health (DOH). If you are traveling with others, they will also be required to quarantine in Hawaiʻi for 10 days.
