COVID-19 BOOSTER SHOTS NOT REQUIRED FOR TRAVEL TO HAWAII

kona hawaii covid guidelines

For those considering booking Kona Hawaii accommodations this spring it is great to know that the Governor of Hawaii announced earlier this month that domestic travelers will not be required to provide proof of COVID-19 booster shots. Individuals who have received their primary COVID-19 vaccination series at least 14 days prior to arrival to the island will be exempt from the mandatory five-day quarantine. Additionally, those who provide an acceptable negative pre-travel test will also continue to be exempt.

While booster shots are not required to travel, visitor are still encouraged to stay up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines. It is also recommended that visitors continue to wear their masks, and travel responsibly throughout the island. Hawaii Tourism Authority’s president and SEO John De Fries went on to add that “Many of Hawaii’s businesses and visitor industry partners continue to work diligently to get their employees vaccinated and boosted to ensure that we can continue to keep Hawaii safe and to be effective hosts to our visitors. We appreciate everyone taking personal responsibility to mālama (care for) ourselves and one another.”

Hawaii’s Safe Travels program applies to all individuals traveling from the U.S. mainland and its Territories to the Hawaiian Islands. Travelers are considered up to date on the 14th day for vaccines that require two shots or for vaccines that require only one shot.

Travels must upload their vaccination records to the Safe Travels website at https://travel.hawaii.gov/ prior to departure. Travelers arriving without proof of vaccination or acceptable negative pre-travel test result will be subject to a mandatory five-day quarantine. This does not apply to passengers arriving directly from an international destination. Federal requirements for entry into the United States remain in place.
