Hawaii Allows Vaccinated Visitors

As of November 1, 2021, vaccinated travelers are now welcomed to Hawaii’s shores. According to Governor David Ige, “. . . it is now safe for fully vaccinated residents and visitors to resume nonessential travel to and within the state of Hawaii.” This statement is in response to Hawaii’s current pandemic statistics. At least 59% of its residents are fully vaccinated, and 78% have had their first shot. New COVID-19 cases are at the lowest per capita of any other state. “We want to invite and encourage fully vaccinated visitors and residents to travel for business or leisure, trans-Pacific and inter-island,” says Ige.

To be cleared for travel, visitors have several options:

  • They may upload their vaccination records to Hawaii’s Safe Travels website. From there, they must print a hard copy of these records, ready for presentation upon arrival.
  • They can also use digital records verified by Digital Health Pass Partners, including AZOVA, CLEAR, and CommonPass.
  • If they already have digital records with one of Hawaii’s partners, they can link those records with Safe Travels and receive expedited processing at an airport. People who have been fully vaccinated in the state can already use this benefit.

Visitors may also use a pre-travel test. No more than 72 hours before the final leg of their journey, they must be tested for COVID-19. If they are negative, they are free to travel. Without this testing, visitors must stay in quarantine when they arrive.
