We all want to travel to Hawaii for those dream vacations. The sun, the beaches, the food, the environment… There’s so much to do and see! And it’s completely possible to turn this into a reality.
Hawaii recently reopened to visitors late last year, which was very exciting to see. In order to ensure that everyone stays safe, they’ve also put in several Covid regulations. This is actually one of the reasons why I’m a huge advocate for traveling there now because it’s one of the safest places to travel to (plus you’d get to live the tropical dream!).
But I understand that Covid is still very much a worry for many people. That’s exactly why I’m here. We’ll breakdown some of the parts to note so that you feel more comfortable about traveling both to Hawaii and in general.
So without further ado, here are all of the things to keep in mind as you prepare to travel to Hawaii!

Before You Travel To Hawaii
- You must provide evidence of a negative Covid test result with 72 hours of your flight. This test must come from a “trusted partner,” which can be found on Hawaii’s Covid website.
- Quarantine and country travel rules
- Only travelers from the U.S., Canada, Japan, and South Korea can bypass the mandatory 10-day quarantine
- Those that have been in Brazil, China, European Schengen Area, Iran, Ireland, South Africa, and the United Kingdom in the past 14 days will be denied entry
- All other countries must do a 10-day quarantine or present a negative test result to enter
- All tourists must complete a Safe Travels Hawaii form and may need to pass a health screening upon arrival. This should be completed at least 24 hours ahead of travel.
- Many airlines (ie. Alaska Airlines, United Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines) has pre-clearance programs in place so that you can show your test results before departure and skip the document screening process when you get to Hawaii
- Updates are constantly being made to the Hawaii Guide website, so keep checking it so you can stay on top of any changes
- If you travel to Maui, you must download the AlohaSafe Alert app so that they can contact-trace you. If you don’t, you have to quarantine for 10 days
When You Get There
- Masks must always be worn when out in public
- Oahu – No more than 10 people can be together for social gatherings (ie. restaurants, boats, helicopters)
- Maui – No more than 5 people allowed for gatherings
- Big Island – 10 people for indoor and outdoor gathers only if everyone wears masks and obeys social distancing
- Kauai – 10 people allowed indoors and 25 allowed outdoors
- What isn’t there to do in Hawaii! Here are just a few examples of activities you can partake in:
- World-renown surfing
- Dozens of sandy beaches
- Hawaiian culture, artwork, and museums
- Volcanic activity and lava tubes
- Botanical gardens
- Snorkeling and diving trips
- Wandering farmers markets
- 90% of the hotels are now open, so you’ll have plenty of places to choose from that suit you and your travel party. And they all have extensive cleanliness procedures so you won’t have to worry about a thing!
- Some attractions now require tickets or reservations to ensure social distancing
It is one of my absolute favorite places to visit because it is beautiful and filled with good vibes. The regulations may look intimidating at first, but they are very manageable and are designed to keep you safe. If you follow through, you are guaranteed to have a magical, tropical vacation!
