Hawaiʻi is Poised to Ease Travel Restrictions Starting July 8
When the state reaches a 60% vaccination rate, fully vaccinated U.S. travelers can fly here without pre-travel restrictions.
It’s the day vaccinated U.S. travelers have been waiting for.
It’s the anticipated day Hawaiʻi will allow Americans with proof they’re fully vaccinated to fly to Hawaiʻi—any island—without any travel restrictions. Meaning no quarantine or pre-travel requirements, as long as they upload their vaccination records to the state’s Safe Travels website and arrive with a hard copy of their vaccinations records. (Fully vaccinated means it’s been two weeks since your second dose in a two-dose series—such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccines—or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.)
The move will come when Hawaiʻi sees a statewide average of a 60% full vaccination rate. As of today, the state is at 57% and is expected to reach 60% by July 4.
At 70% the state will drop all COVID-19 restrictions, including wearing masks indoors.
On July 8, you can expect:
- Fully vaccinated U.S. travelers flying domestically—including island residents returning home—will be allowed to bypass the state’s quarantine and pre-travel restrictions, as long as they upload their vaccination records to the state’s Safe Travels website and arrive with a hard copy of their vaccinations records. (All current travel restrictions will remain in place until July 8.)
- The number of people allowed to attend social gatherings will increase from the current level of 10 people indoors to 25; The size of outdoor gatherings will increase from 25 people outdoors to 75.
- Restaurants will be allowed to increase their seating capacities to 75% of the maximum allowed capacity, as long as they seat no more than 25 customers indoors and 75 outdoors.
