UPDATE AS OF MARCH 2, 2022 – On March 26, 2022, the State of Hawaii will discontinue the Safe Travels program. Starting March 26th domestic travelers can travel to Hawaii without needing to quarantine or show proof of vaccination or negative test results.

International guests – check the CDC site – it provides excellent information: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/international-travel/travel-assessment/index.html
I am fully vaccinated, must I still satisfy the pre-departure requirements?
Hawaiʻi will accept vaccination records from any US states and US territories to bypass quarantine and pre-travel testing. This does not apply for international guests.
What should I expect after I arrive? subject to change at any time.
UPDATE: Effective January 24th, Maui County’s definition of “fully vaccinated” will include the booster shot. THIS ONLY APPLIES TO SERVICES ON THE ISLAND, NOT THE REQUIREMEN TO COME TO HAWAII. Indoor service at restaurants, bars, gyms, as well as entry to State facilities will only be available to vaccinated guests. Non-vaccinated guests are still able to dine outdoors or order take-out.
Masks are no longer required outdoors. They are required indoors in public places.
Our beaches are open and shops and restaurants are open with reduced occupancy limits. Please be sure to bring your masks and wear them indoors in public places. The county has clarified that masks must be worn to gyms, yoga studios and similar venues, for indoor activities.
Please practice responsible social distancing.
Dining out – subject to change at any time
To dine indoors: “Customers will be required to show vaccination, vaccination cards, or some sort of verification. And those who don’t have proof of vaccination, if the restaurant has outside seating, they’re allowed to sit outside and/or takeout,” said Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino.
Please be sure to bring your vaccination card with you.
This does not apply to children under the age of 12 as they are not yet eligible for vaccination.
