Hawaii tourism

Wonderful news! At midnight on March 25th the Safe Travels Hawaii Program is expiring for all domestic vacationers to Hawaii!

What does this mean?

That starting March 26, 2022 you can travel to Hawaii without filling out any online forms or codes, not having to show proof of vaccination or any pre-flight testing! Again this is for DOMESTIC flights (at this time). International travelers must still follow the federal guidelines. But the situation is always fluid and moving so we will keep you updated.

Again anyone traveling to Hawaii starting on March 26th from the mainland on a domestic flight will no longer have any travel requirements to fulfill!

Just in time for a beautiful Spring and Summer on the Island 🙂

There’s been a lot of rumors about changes to the Safe Travels Hawaii program (and travel updates for the Big Island/Hawaii overall) so we want to clear some things up.

Thanks to decreasing case numbers and the islands good vaccinations rates the Governor has decided not to require boosters in order to be fully vaccinated/up to date as was being discussed. Basically nothing changes in that regard. When traveling to Hawaii you need to upload your vaccination papers to the Travel Hawaii Website or provide a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of your flight. This is all to avoid the 5-day quarantine.

On the island be respectful of the local businesses and the rules they have in place!

There are some rumors that if things continuing going as they are (fingers crossed!) even more restrictions and perhaps the program as a whole will be set aside by Spring but for now the Safe Travel Program is still in effect. We’ve come to learn that the easiest, best way to travel is to make sure you follow the instructions on the site and take care of everything before you get on the plane!

We will keep you updated as travel updates for the Big Island and Hawaii change! We hope to see you on the island soon… As always safe travels!




We’ve had some excellent news travelers and want to be travelers COVID travel restrictions continue to drop!

As of July 8th Hawaii is allowing all travelers VACCINATED in the United States (and territories) to travel without the pre-travel COVID test or any quarantine!  It’s another step in returning to normal.

Now you will need to upload proof of vaccination to the Hawaii Safe Travels Website and keep a physical card on you but hopefully this will alleviate some of the travel stress. As well as this news COVID travel restrictions continue to drop around the islands including restaurants being allowed to move up to 75% capacity and increasing numbers of people allowed to gather!

If you are not vaccinated by the time of your trip you will still need to take the test and follow those COVID procedures.

The goal is once Hawaii reaches 70% vaccinated on the island for all travel restrictions to drop. Currently that number is around 57%…. we are so close!
