Inter-County Travelers Vaccinated in Hawaii May Bypass Pre-Travel Testing, Quarantine Starting May 11, 2021


Effective May 11, 2021, individuals fully vaccinated in the State of Hawaii may travel inter-county, including to Kauai, without pre-travel testing/quarantine starting the 15th day after the completion of their vaccination.

Travelers who arrive in Kauai, Maui and Hawaii counties before they are fully vaccinated or before the 15th day after the completion of their vaccination, will be placed into mandatory quarantine for the full 10 days, unless they meet the criteria for other exceptions (pre-travel testing and CISA). The City and County of Honolulu does not have an interisland travel quarantine order.

Vaccinated individuals traveling inter-county will need to:

  • Provide a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card with name, birthdate, type of vaccine, date(s) vaccine was administered and lot number(s) for each vaccine dose.
  • Create an online account and register with the State of Hawaii Safe Travels Hawaii web program.
  • Affirm that they are fully vaccinated, and that the uploaded CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card is accurate and authentic.
  • Upload a PDF file or digital image of a properly filled CDC Vaccination Record Card to the Safe Travels Hawai‘i web program.
  • Bring a digital image as well as the original CDC Vaccination Record Card with you in case you are asked to produce it.

At this time, the State of Hawaii will accept only the “CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card” or a printout from the Vaccination Administration Management System (VAMS). Vaccinated individuals who did not receive the CDC card or VAMS printout must return to the provider that administered their vaccination, for a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card. State or territory Department of Health issued cards will not be accepted.

  • Travelers under the age of 5 may bypass quarantine requirements, provided they are traveling on the same itinerary as a parent/guardian who has met vaccination verification requirements.
  • Travelers 5 years of age and older who are not vaccinated can take a pre-arrival test to bypass the quarantine.
  • Travelers ages 16 and 17 who are fully vaccinated should follow the vaccination verification requirements for adults.
  • Travelers must continue to monitor for symptoms and must follow local county regulations – wearing a mask, physical distancing and hygiene practices.
