Planning Travel to Hawaii During COVID-19

Planning Travel to Hawaii During COVID-19

With COVID-19 precautions stretching on, you may be craving a vacation in paradise. Hawaii is one of the U.S. states with the lowest death rates from Covid per capita. So if your state guidelines allow for travel and you do not have Covid, planning a getaway to the tropics can be on your itinerary.

Hawaii is known for warm temperatures, bright sun and relaxing waves. After safety precautions and longer stretches without travel, many are planning to travel to the islands, even if that means working remotely from a hotel room.

Work remotely in Hawaii and keep you options open with travel insurance

However, the state of Hawaii has implemented some of the most stringent rules surrounding inbound visitors. Heres what you need to know if you want to visit in the coming months.

As the only U.S. state made up of a collection of islands, Hawaii has more stringent entry requirements than most other states. Before you book your trip, double-check the entry requirements on the Hawaii tourism or Hawaii state COVID-19 sites.

We also recommend Cancel For Any Reason (CFAR) Insurance in case you need to rethink your vacation at the last moment due to exposure to COVID-19 or feeling unsafe traveling as the situation develops.

Heres what travelers to the Hawaiian islands need to know before setting off.

  • Since July 8, 2021, individuals who are fully vaccinated in the U.S. may enter Hawaii on domestic flights without any pre-travel testing and without having to quarantine.
  • All other travelers must have their negative test results from a Trusted Testing and Travel Partner
  • If you choose not to take a COVID-19 test, you’ll be subject to a mandatory 10-day quarantine.
  • Once a flight to Hawaii is booked, all travelers 18 years or older must register on Hawaiis Safe Travels system.

Beyond requirements, here is some other information that will be useful for your trip to Hawaii:

  • Dont forget to pack your face masks in your carry-on luggage, as masks may be required in specific areas in Hawaii.
  • If youre traveling between counties (or the islands of Maui, Kauai, Oahu and Hawaii) youll also need to follow similar procedures including Covid testing within 72 hours of your flight.
  • Be sure to allow extra time for airport security on both ends of your flight as there are increased security measures, including temperature checks, during the pandemic.
  • Please be flexible and follow the rules and guidelines of air carriers, cruise lines and Hawaii state officials during your travels including wearing face masks and undergoing additional testing if necessary.
  • Purchasing trip insurance is a smart way to ensure that the financial investment of your vacation is protected

Getting away from it all to the beautiful Hawaiian islands can be a great way to spend some time during the Covid pandemic. By following these rules and regulations, you can do your part to keep everyone safe while enjoying all that Hawaii has to offer.
