Hawaii is excited to welcome back our friends from Japan.


As you many of you have heard, Japan is being added to Hawaii’s Safe Travels pre-travel testing program. This means that travelers from Japan who take a COVID-19 test at one of the Trusted Traveler Partners in Japan and have proof of a negative test result within 72 hours of arriving in Hawaii, will be allowed to bypass the 14-day quarantine.



Although we understand that there are still quarantine protocols in place when Japanese citizens return back home, this Hawaii Safe Travels pre-travel testing program is a step in the right direction.
