How to get tested before your trip to Hawaii

Spend less time worrying about your pre-travel COVID-19 test and more time getting excited for your upcoming trip. We’re making it simple and easy for you by walking you through the process and providing a list of state-approved testing options to choose from. Learn more about the State of Hawaii pre-travel testing program.

Follow these steps:

Select a COVID-19 test option

Choose one of the test options listed below – they are all state-approved and meet the pre-travel testing program requirements. Order a home test kit or make an appointment at a local test location as early as possible.

Take test no more than 72 hours prior to last leg of departure

Specific timing information is provided for each test option. Plan accordingly; without providing a negative test upon arrival, you’ll need to quarantine until you receive your results. See the state's travel FAQs.

Create an account on the State of Hawaii “Safe Travels” website

Create your Safe Travels account at least 24 hours before your flight. Fill out the Safe Travels travel and health form and you’ll be provided a QR code that will be scanned at the airport when you arrive in Hawaii. Learn more.

Upload your negative test result to your "Safe Travels" account

Once you’ve uploaded a PDF of your test results, your negative pre-travel test result will be verified and your quarantine exemption status will be reflected on your account. Be sure to bring a physical copy of your test results, as you may be asked to show your test results at the airport in Hawaii.
