pre-travel COVID-19 testing

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.

For a smooth travel experience, we recommend following these steps:

Select a COVID-19 test option

Choose one of the state-approved test options listed below and order a home test kit or make an appointment at a local test location as early as possible. You’ll want to confirm that your test provider can meet the 72-hour timeframe; for trans-pacific travel, negative test results must be received prior to your scheduled flight departure in order to bypass the mandatory 10-day self-quarantine.

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

Specific timing information is provided for each test option. Please validate that your provider can provide test results before your flight departs. 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

Prior to your flight, upload the negative test result in PDF format to your Safe Travels account. Your result will be verified and your quarantine exemption status will be reflected on your account. Be sure to print and bring a physical copy of your test results prior to your flight, as you may be asked to show your test results at the airport in Hawaii.
