Covid-19 Travel to Hawaii: What You Need to Know

In this post, I’m sharing Covid-19 Travel tips. I had the luxury of traveling to Hawaii for my birthdaycation. I didn’t get a chance to renew my passport so my birthday options were limited and not to mention we’re in the middle of a pandemic.  Hawaii was taking extra precautions for those visiting and they recently opened up to tourists in October for COVID-19 Travel. But there were some COVID-19 travel hurdles I had to climb before I was able to visit.

COVID-19 Travel Checklist

  2. Take a Covid-19 test at a  trusted partner within 72 hours of departure

  5. Obtain a QR code that will be scanned by a screener at the airport.
