What do I need to travel to Hawaii?

Although the state of Hawaii has had some of the most stringent travel restrictions in the nation, they removed all formal entry requirements as of March 26, 2022. Now, US residents no longer need proof of vaccination or testing results in order to visit any of the Hawaiian islands.

If you’re planning a trip to Hawaii, it’s still best to double-check on entry requirements before your trip. Since the state has a history of strict compliance (and, at times, mandatory quarantines), you won’t want to be caught off-guard if they reinstate guidelines.

International Travel Requirements

The state of Hawai’i is aligned with federal international requirements and there are no additional requirements for travelers flying directly into Hawaii from an international destination. International travelers entering the US from another state or territory will be treated as domestic travelers when entering Hawai’i.

Bottom Line

The state government of Hawaii previously had strict rules to protect residents and visitors from the spread of Covid-19, but entry requirements are lifted now. Once in Hawaii, check county and municipality guidelines regarding the wearing of masks and limitations on dining or other high-transmission-risk activities and be sure to comply with local regulations
