Hawaii is Open Again

What are the travel restrictions & requirements in Hawaii for Spring 2022?

Published in Globetrotters

As of March 26, 2022, there are no COVID-related requirements for arriving domestic passengers. Visitors arriving from domestic points of origin no longer have to show proof of vaccination or a pre-travel negative test result to bypass a mandatory five-day quarantine.

Hawaii’s indoor mask mandate also ended on March 26, 2022. Masks are still strongly recommended for people over age 65, those with compromised immune systems or who care for people at risk of severe illness, and those unvaccinated for COVID-19.

Hawaii’s entry policy for international travelers aligns with the federal rules for air travelers that went into effect on November 8, 2021, requiring international arrivals ages 18 and up to be fully vaccinated and have a negative Covid-19 test result.

Best Practices Information

The State of Hawaii offers these suggestions:

Wear a mask in public indoor spaces when you are around people whose vaccination status is unknown, practice good hygiene and when possible, maintain physical distancing.

When you leave your lodging accommodations, please take all necessary precautions prioritizing public health to ensure Hawai‘i remains a safe place for residents and visitors. Be sure your mask covers your nose and mouth.
