Hawaii’s Safe Travels Form No Longer Required for Domestic Travelers

Hawaii is eliminating the need for domestic travelers to fill out an online health form prior to arrival, making it a little easier to visit the islands going forward.

As of this week, travelers heading to Hawaii from another U.S. state or territory are no longer required to fill out the State of Hawai’i Travel and Health Form as part of the state’s Safe Travels program, according to Hawaii’s COVID-19 website. Previously, the form would need to be filled out 24 hours before departure in order to receive a QR code through email, which would be used at the airport to verify a passenger’s Safe Travels Hawai’i information.

Hawaii will still allow domestic travelers to visit quarantine-free if they show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative test.

Is It Safe To Travel Yet? Here’s The Definitive Answer

It’s a confusing time to be a traveler. Many airlines, hotels and travel advisors promise it’s safe to book a vacation. But health officials are telling you to stay home. 

So who’s right?

Both are. (Told you this was confusing.)

It’s safe to book a vacation — new consumer-friendly refund rules mean you won’t lose your entire trip if you cancel — but not necessarily to take one. Health officials are correct, too. You should stay home, particularly if you’re in an at-risk group. The exception: If you’ve had both shots and waited the required 10 days to develop your antibodies, you can probably safely travel now.
