Hawaii Reopens to Tourism October 15!
We are excited to announce that the Hawaiian Islands will welcome travelers once again beginning October 15, 2020!
From GoHawaii.com: "The culture of our Hawaiian Islands is steeped in the values of hookipa (hospitality) and aloha. We warmly invite you to reconnect with our people, culture and home safely and responsibly. Now that travelers can once again enjoy Hawaii’s breathtaking natural beauty, extraordinary open spaces, unique experiences and signature hospitality, we are asking you to join in our efforts to help keep Hawaii safe."
In order to visit Hawaii once it reopens to tourism, there are some steps that incoming travelers will need to complete:
Adults 18 and over must complete register and complete an online health questionnaire at travel.hawaii.gov. Registration can be completed in advance, but the Travel Health Questionnaire should be completed no less than 24 hours prior to flight departure time.
All travelers, including minors age 5 and up, must take an FDA-authorized Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) from a certified lab no more than 72 hours prior to flight departure time. No antigen or antibody tests are accepted.
Alternatively, guests can also quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Hawaii.
All incoming Hawaii travelers will have their temperature checked upon arrival. Temperature scans will be taken via thermal temperature screening and facial-imaging technology. Photos are only temporarily retained for persons with elevated temperatures of 100.4 degrees F and above to help airport representatives identify them and conduct additional assessments.
Please note that this applies to U.S. travelers only. Currently, international travel restrictions prohibit European and other countries from travelling to the U.S.
Remember to pack your mask and/or facial coverings in your carry-on luggage. All visitors are required to wear a mask (allowances given for young children and those with health conditions) at all airports and until they are in their room in their confirmed place of lodging.
