Hawaii travel news! Vaccinated travelers donโ€™t need a negative COVID test starting July 8th #Shorts

Surprise update from Hawaii Governor Ige! July 8th people vaccinated on mainland or Hawaii can come to Hawaii without taking a negative COVID-19 test. That is right, starting July 8th it is easier for vaccinated travelers to visit Hawaii.

The state of Hawaii was planning to end the restriction at 60% fully vaccinated. They may still hit 60% by July 8th but the state just gave a clear date for vaccinated travelers.

They are still planning to end all travel restrictions at 70% fully vaccinated. Stay tuned for more info.

Unvaccinated travelers are welcome to come to Hawaii. They must continue to take a negative COVID test 72 hours before departure.

Thanks for watching and safe travels to Hawaii.

  1. Terrible update. You should have mentioned that they do not except antigen rapid test. You need a special kind on covid test from an approved clinic. Please people stop going to this Island, my friend and his family are stuck in a hotel room right now. If they leave its $5000 fine each. These are some nasty people. They hate mainlanders they think they are better than us for some reason.

  2. Thank You ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  3. If we wanna hop islands but arenโ€™t from the mainland do we need to get tested? Iโ€™m fully vaccinated.

  4. Thank you so much for the information, getting a bit nervous since we book our fly for this upcoming week & hearing so many stories from friends. Got a question so a 72 hour test is require for persons that have not been vaccinated?
    I got my vaccine 2 months ago, & want to confirm if it's all I need.

  5. Not anymore! Covid-19 Delta Variant is running rampant so NOT a good time to visit the Hawaiian islands! Plus 4 or more hour wait when arriving at the airport to check QR codes!

  6. Is the hour you take the test a big deal? Letโ€™s say you have an hour window within the 72 hrs from the actual time you check in to fly to Hawaii and there is a delay / long line etc .

  7. Would we have to upload our vaccination records somewhere before we fly out? Or do we just show our vaccination card

  8. Thank you for all the tips and tricks we enjoyed our stay in Maui. So thankful for your service you provided and all the information to help us and others get to Hawaii safely.
