The unprecedented challenge of COVID-19 keeps disrupting many parts of our society and it looks like 2022 will continue the trend set in the past years: rising and waning restrictions needed to control the number of hospitalizations and safe lives. For now, however, travel restrictions are minimal.
Hawaiʻi Safe Travels Program and indoor mask mandate ended March 25, 2022Passengers arriving from the mainland will not be required to create a Safe Travels account, show their COVID-19 vaccination status, or take a pre-travel test when traveling to the Hawaiian Islands.
Passengers arriving to Hawaii on direct international flights must still adhere to federal U.S. entry requirements. However, as of June 12 2022, the CDC will no longer require air passengers traveling from a foreign country to the United States to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board their flight (more info).
Hawaii’s statewide indoor mask mandate was also discontinued at the end of March 25th. Take care however, that masks won’t entirely go away in Hawaii. They will likely still be required at all airports, and private businesses are free to enforce their own mask mandates.
