Leaving Hawai‘i

Hawai‘i residents leaving Hawai‘i should be prepared to undergo a government-mandated 14-day quarantine upon their return.

On October 15, 2020 residents will have the option to have a pre-travel test upon returning to Hawai‘i. Travelers who, upon entry into the state, provide written confirmation from a state approved COVID-19 testing facility of a negative test result from a test administered to the traveler within 72 hours from the final leg of departure, will be exempt from the 14-day mandatory quarantine.

You should evaluate all risks associated with travel and take the appropriate proactive measures. The situation is dynamic and you may be unable to access medical services if you become ill in a country that begins to experience a heavy burden of COVID-19 infection.
