Trans-Pacific travelers will be exempt from Hawai’I’s 10-day travel quarantine starting April 5, 2021, by participation in the state’s Safe Travels pre-travel testing program.  Beginning April 5, 2021, it will no longer be necessary for out-of-state visitors to stay in a Resort Bubble or spend time on another Hawaiian island before traveling to Kaua’I in order to receive a quarantine exemption.

Beginning April 5, 2021 travelers can avoid quarantine by taking the following steps:

  • Take a pre-travel test from one of the State of Hawai’I’s Trusted Testing and Travel Partners within 72 hours of departing to Kaua’i:  (NOTE: Tests taken from any other lab will not be accepted)
  • Upload negative test results to your Safe Travel account BEFORE traveling to Hawai’i.  (NOTE: Travelers who arrive without uploading the negative test result will not be accepted.)
