Safe Travels

Destination Hawaii

The pre-travel testing program for COVID-19 enables travelers to avoid a mandatory 14-day quarantine if they are tested within 72 hours before their flight to Hawaii departs with a FDA-approved nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) only acceptable from State of Hawaii Trusted Testing and Travel Partners and can show proof of a negative test result. Travelers also will have their temperatures checked upon arrival and must fill out the Safe Travels travel and health form. Upon arrival in Hawaii, passengers unable to provide proof of an approved negative test will be required to go into quarantine for 14 days or until they can provide proof of negative test results.

For a step-by-step overview of Hawai‘i’s pre-travel requirement process and options, please reference this downloadable  Quick Reference Chart.

If you arrive on Kaua‘i without valid proof of a negative COVID-19 NAAT from a Trusted Partner lab accepted by the Safe Travels program you will be subject to the State of Hawai‘i’s strict 14-day mandatory self-quarantine requirement. Travelers who took a pre-travel test but have not yet received the results will also be subject to the mandatory quarantine until proof of a negative test is uploaded to the Safe Travels program.

Those in quarantine will need to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Under self-quarantine, you will not be allowed to leave the room at your place of lodging under any circumstances, except for a medical emergency or to depart the state.
  • Travelers subject to the quarantine are prohibited from renting a vehicle or staying in a short-term rental or vacation rental until completion of the quarantine period, so please plan ahead.
  • Travelers who violate the terms of the 14-day mandatory self-quarantine will be prosecuted and may face fines of up to $5,000 and one year in prison.
  • Travelers subject to the quarantine will also be required to fill out the Kaua‘i Arrival Form upon arrival. This form will be provided at the Lihue Airport and the submitted information will be used by law enforcement to conduct quarantine compliance checks.


Transpacific travelers who complete the Safe Travels program and receive a quarantine exemption are urged to Rest, Test, and Enjoy! Please take a voluntary second test three days after arrival to help keep our community safe. Until then, please wear a mask, wash your hands, and avoid community contact.

As a mahalo to visitors who choose to pay for and take the second test, they will receive a $150 certificate from a participating Kauai business.  American Medical Response will be accepting walk-ins for visitor post-arrival testing. Cost for the test will be at the individual’s expense.
For more information, please visit the Visitor Post-Arrival Testing page.

Kaua‘i has instituted a tier system of safety restrictions based on the number of COVID-19 cases on the island average over the past week. Visitors are encouraged to check the current case count and current tier level before traveling.
