How to avoid the 10-day quarantine when flying to Oahu Hawaii during the coronavirus
Updated: Apr 7
First, register with the Hawaii Department of Health on Safe Travels Hawai'i prior to your arrival on Oahu.
Next, use the following flow chart to guide you through the arrival process to Oahu. Note that travelers on Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines are now able to pre-screen prior to boarding, rather than upon arrival in Honolulu.
Note: This flowchart reflects that trans-Pacific travelers (anyone outside of the Hawaiian Islands), who are unable to present a negative test result upon arrival, won’t be able to bypass the 10-day quarantine (previously 14-day), even if they provide a negative test result after arrival.
The test result you will be providing upon arrival at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport aka: the Honolulu International Airport and to the front desk at the Beach Villas at Ko Olina will look similar to this:
The state of Hawai‘i will ONLY accept a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT/PCR) from a certified Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) lab test results from a TRUSTED TESTING AND TRAVEL PARTNER.
A negative result from the wrong type of test or from a lab that is not a trusted testing and travel partner will not be accepted and you will still be required to quarantine for 10-days.
To assist with an effortless arrival process at the Beach Villas at Ko Olina, please email your test results to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to check-in.
We look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of paradise we call the Beach Villas at Ko Olina. Travel safe and we'll see you soon.
