Hawaii welcoming back vaccinated travelers

By Hawaii.com Team

With COVID-19 case counts tapering off and Hawaii’s health care system stable, Governor David Ige announced plans to welcome back tourists, both from the mainland United States and internationally.

According to the state’s Safe Travels website, Hawaii is aligning with federal international travel requirements and will not add any state-level requirements for international travel. Airlines will screen passengers prior to departure to the United States.

Hawaii’s mandatory 10-day self-quarantine will remain in effect for domestic travel from the U.S. and its territories, but those travelers can still bypass quarantine by creating an account on the Safe Travels site and uploading proof of valid vaccination.

Ige’s announcement comes a couple of months after he urged tourists to stay away from Hawaii while COVID-19 cases surged throughout the islands.

Restrictions remain in place in the islands, including required proof of vaccination or recent negative test results to enter restaurants, bars and other establishments; capacity limitations for businesses and venues; social distancing and masking indoors.
