IMPORTANT TRAVEL UPDATES AS OF 11/19/2020: 

New Policy - IMPORTANT!  PLEASE READ!!

Starting on Nov. 24, travelers wanting to bypass Hawai‘i‘s 14-day mandatory quarantine must have COVID-19 test results, from a trusted travel partner, prior to departure to the islands. Gov. Ige made the announcement this afternoon at a news conference.

“We’re taking this added safety precaution now in response to the dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases on the mainland and around the world. The health of our residents and visitors is our primary concern, particularly with more people traveling to Hawai‘i over the holidays,” said Gov. Ige.

If a traveler’s test results are not available before boarding their final flight segment, the traveler must quarantine for 14 days or the length of their stay, whichever is shorter.

The new policy applies to domestic transpacific flights and international flights departing from locations in which the State of Hawai‘i has pre-testing programs in place.

Because short-term vacation rentals are prohibited by law from hosting guests subject to quarantine, guests arriving without their negative pre-travel Covid test results in-hand must find alternative accommodations at a hotel and quarantine there.  As such, if you do not have your negative test results in-hand prior to your flight's departure to Hawaii it is strongly suggested that you reconsider flying into the state.

Governor Ige announced that the launch of pre-travel testing program will now begin on OCTOBER 15, 2020.  

The Pre-Travel Testing Program is scheduled to begin on October 15. Travelers who, upon entry into the state, provide written confirmation from a state approved COVID-19 testing facility of a negative test result from a test administered to the traveler within 72 hours from the final leg of departure, will be exempt from the 14-day mandatory quarantine.

Currently approved is the processing by laboratories that are licensed or certified by Clinical Laboratories Improvement Amendments (CLIA) of specimens for nucleic acid amplification testing approved or authorized by the United States Food and Drug Administration, pursuant to an Emergency Use Authorization or other authorization for COVID-19 testing. The State of Hawaii thus far announced partnerships with Kaiser Permanente, CVS Pharmacies, and Walgreens. Recently, United Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines announced they will be offering COVID testing for passengers at designated airports. Please check the state travel links below to make sure yours is a participating testing facility.

Travelers with Pending COVID Test Results Upon Arrival to Hawaii

As of Nov. 24th, Hawaii visitors with pending coronavirus test results will no longer have chance to bypass quarantine.

Governor David Ige announced today that starting next Tuesday, Nov. 24, travelers wishing to bypass the 14-day mandatory quarantine must have their COVID-19 test results – from a trusted testing partner – prior to departure for the State of Hawaiʻi.  If test results are not available before boarding the final leg of the trip, the traveler must quarantine for 14 days or the length of the stay, whichever is shorter.   

Because short-term vacation rentals are prohibited by law from hosting guests subject to quarantine, guests arriving without their negative pre-travel Covid test results in-hand must find alternative accommodations at a hotel and quarantine there.  As such, if you do not have your negative test results in-hand prior to your flight's departure to Hawaii it is strongly suggested that you reconsider flying into the state.

Travelers Without Negative COVID Test Results Upon Arrival to Hawaii

Travelers who did not submit to a COVID test prior to their departure must quarantine for a minimum of 14 days or their entire stay whichever is shorter. The traveler must stay in a designated quarantine property. By law, Chase ‘N Rainbows cannot accept guests subject to quarantine restrictions. By law, Chase ‘N Rainbows cannot accept guests subject to quarantine restrictions due to failure to participate in the pre-travel Covid testing program.
