Traveling to Hawaii – Domestic
All domestic trans-Pacific travelers to Hawaii are subject to the State of Hawaii’s 5-day quarantine, unless they have an exemption via Hawaii’s Safe Travels Program.
Starting March 26, domestic travelers entering Hawaii will no longer need to show proof of vaccination/negative test or register with Safe Travels.
Any domestic trans-Pacific travelers vaccinated in the U.S. or U.S. Territories may participate in the exemption program starting on the 15th day after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or starting the 15th day after they have received a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Travelers will need to apply through the State of Hawaii’s Travel Quarantine Exemption Request program by uploading one of three vaccination documents: a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, a VAMS (Vaccination Administration Management System) printout OR a DOD DD Form 2766C. Please also please carry a hard copy of the vaccination documentation to show screeners at the gate prior to boarding and/or upon arrival in Hawaii.
Trans-Pacific travelers arriving in Hawaii with proof of a negative test result from a valid NAAT COVID-19 testing partner no more than 72-hours prior to arrival can avoid the 5-day quarantine. Evidence of a negative test result must be provided upon departure to Hawaii. If test results are not available before boarding the final leg of the trip, the traveler must quarantine for 5 days or the length of the stay, whichever is shorter in a quarantine approved hotel, not a vacation rental.
Trans-Pacific travelers who have recently recovered from COVID-19 may be eligible to be exempt from the travel quarantine. Travelers will need to apply through the State of Hawaii’s Travel Quarantine Exemption Request program.
Interisland passengers arriving on Kauai from Oahu, Maui, or Hawaii Island will are not required to complete a Safe Travels profile and are not subject to quarantine.
All travelers are required to create a Safe Travels Account no sooner than 24 hours before their departure at https://travel.hawaii.gov/#/.
Please refer to the State of Hawaii’s COVID-19 trusted travel partners site for the list of approved testing providers: https://hawaiicovid19.com/travel-partners/.
Once received, all travelers must upload proof of negative test results to their Safe Travelers Account.
For a step-by-step overview of Hawaii’s pre-travel requirements process and options, you can download a quick reference chart or visit the State of Hawaii’s Travel FAQ page.
Children under five years old are not required to test and will not be quarantined if traveling with an adult who has a pre-travel test exemption or a vaccination exemption. Children five years and older who have not been vaccinated must participate in the Pre-Travel Testing Program and test with a Trusted Testing Partner to bypass the mandatory 10-day quarantine.
Traveling to Hawaii – International
Direct international flights to Hawaii align with current CDC federal international requirements where NON-U.S. citizens traveling directly to Hawaii from an international destination must present BOTH a vaccination record AND a negative COVID-19 test result (NAAT or antigen) within 24 hours of boarding a flight to the United States.
International passengers entering the U.S. in another state or territory before arriving to Hawaii will be treated as domestic travelers when entering the State of Hawaii and will to participate in the State of Hawaii’s Safe Travels program as noted above.
The State of Hawaii has dropped its mask mandate in outdoor settings, however masks are recommended outdoors if you are in a large group. The State’s indoor mask mandate remains unchanged.
North Shore Update
On March 10, 2021 heavy rains triggered a series of small landslides and then a massive landslide happened on March 11, covering Kuhio Highway approaching Hanalei Bridge therefore cutting off land access to the North Shore. Since then, state and county crews and contractors have been working to clear the highway. Currently there is limited access to the public and we suggest not including trips to Hanalei and beyond until normal access is permitted. For an update on access, please check the State of Hawaii Department of Transportation website. More details also available on our Hanalei Bridge Emergency Road Repair Blog Update.
We are doing everything we can to provide a safe and enjoyable experience when you do get to visit us. Mahalo for your patience, understanding and cooperation.

Are swimming pools at resorts open to hotel guests?
Aloha Ted, yes the pools are open. We just ask that you remain at a safe social distance from unrelated parties. Mahalo
Laura Hoy says
With the current 14 day mandatory quarantine we are unable to come to Kauai. Due to current travel instability, we do not know when we will be able to reschedule our vacation. We request to have our deposit returned at this time.
Thank you so much for your assistance in this matter,
Aloha Laura, per your request your reservation has been cancelled. We are sorry we cannot host you at this time, but look forward to it when things are better. Stay safe. Mahalo
SYLVIA GUERRERO says
Aloha – we had to cancel our reservation scheduled on May 1st, but would like to reconnect in June to look at rescheduling for later year most likely October. Please keep me informed as I would also need to coordinate flight schedules. We did have a reservation at the Poipu Kapili unit 12 and would be interested in rescheduling when appropriate. Mahalo Sylvia
I apologize for the delay in getting back to you! I understand that you would like to rebook for October 2020. We are certainly booking new reservations now for October and are anticipating that any travel restrictions will be lifted, however we do not know that for sure at this time. Should you want to secure October dates now we can do so, and we can always move dates out to the future if needed.
Mahalo and I look forward to hearing from you!
