COVID-19 Update

Last updated 11/25/2020

Effective November 24, 2020, Governor Ige’s 16th proclamation changes the Hawai`i pre-travel testing program to avoid an influx in travelers arriving to the state with positive test results. Below are the important points to the current proclamation:


For more information and to apply, please visit:


     •  All travelers must, prior to departure to the State, upload into the State’s Safe Travels program or otherwise provide a hard copy

        confirmation from a Department of Health approved COVID-19 testing facility (“Trusted Testing Partner”) of a negative test result

        from an observed test administered to the traveler within 72 hours from the final leg of departure.

               •  If your test results are not yet available when you arrive in Hawai`i, you will need to self-quarantine at your accommodations

                  for 14 days or the duration of your stay in the State, whichever is shorter.

               •  If you receive a negative test result or an indeterminate test result, while you are in self-quarantine, you will need to remain in

                  quarantine for 14 days or the duration of your stay in the State, whichever is shorter.

               •  If you receive a positive test result while you are in quarantine in Hawai`i, you will be required to go into isolation until you

                  recover and at least 10 days have passed since the start of symptoms or positive test, and at least 24 hours have passed

                  without a fever without the use of fever reducing medicine. Health service guidance will be provided to you by the Hawai`i

                  State Department of Health. If you are travelling with others, they will be required to quarantine in Hawai`i for 14 days since

                  their last contact with you, plus an additional or 14 days after you are cleared from isolation IF staying together.


     •  All persons in the State of Hawai`i shall wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when in public.


All travelers must register an account with the Safe Travel Hawai`i program and must complete the mandatory State of Hawai`i travel and health form.
