Vaccinated US Mainland Travelers
Effective July 8, the state of Hawaii will eliminate its pre-travel testing/quarantine requirements for domestic travelers who have proof of being fully vaccinated in the United States.
We request that guests at Volcano Rainforest Retreat be vaccinated and have the booster shot to be protected as much as possible from all the variants especially the Omicron variant. Additionally, we are practicing masking and 6′ distancing for everyone’s safety. This is our preference for all guests who have made reservations and those planning to do so in the future.
Our private cottages and the outdoor activities in the Park nearby, also contribute to everyone’s wellbeing. Letʻs all be safe and stay well!
No testing required for Inter-island Travel
More restrictions to be eased as vaccination rate increases. See updates on State of Hawaii Department of Health Website http://hawaiicovid19.com/travel

10-day quarantine remains in effect
for those who test positive once they arrive on the island
The State of Hawai’i has established a multi-layered testing and screening process to protect the health and safety of Hawaii residents and everyone traveling to the Hawaiian Islands. All incoming travelers – residents and visitors – are required to have their temperatures checked and complete a health and travel questionnaire using the Safe Travels digital system. Check Hawaii State website for all required documentation including digital uploads and questionnaires.
All travelers and returning residents are subject to the testing program. Those choosing to forego participation in the testing programs will be subject to the 10 day quarantine, upon entering the state. Anyone who doesn’t have the required documentation upon arrival will be quarantined until proper documentation is complete. Operations that rent vehicles may not rent to any person who is subject to a 10-day traveler quarantine order unless an exemption is granted.
