Planning to travel inter-island? Here’s what you need to know
If you’re planning to travel inter-island, and don’t want to quarantine, it’s important to read up on and complete all requirements before you get on the plane.

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - If you’re planning to travel inter-island, and don’t want to quarantine, it’s important to read up on and complete all requirements before you get on the plane.

Just as with travel from the mainland, your first step is to register for the Safe Travels program online.

Everyone 18 and over in your party will need to register.

The next step is to get a test before you travel.

For all Neighbor Island counties, passengers with a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before departure will not have to complete a 14-day quarantine. Travelers to Hawaii County can also opt to get a test after arrival and quarantine until they get a negative result.

Those traveling to Oahu do not need to take a test.

The test requirement applies to anyone 5 and over, and travelers are responsible for the cost of the test. Passengers also must ensure their test is from a trusted provider.

For those traveling trans-Pacific, some counties are requiring or offering a post-arrival test. There are no similar requirements for inter-island travel.
