The Volcano Rainforest Retreat Welcomes
Big Island Residents for Staycations
Beginning October 15, travel to Honolulu with pre-travel testing and secondary quick 15 minute antigen testing upon arrival in Kona and Hilo, on the Big Island will exempt travelers from US, Canada, Japan, and South Korea who test negative with a State of Hawaii approved travel testing partner from the mandatory 10-day quarantine.
The State of Hawaiʻi 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 before they can leave the airport. Check Hawaii State website for all required documentation including digital uploads and questionnaires.
All travelers and returning residents may be subject to the dual 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.
Please remain informed of the most updated information regarding Pre-travel Negative COVID-19 test to Honolulu on the State of Hawaii’s Department of Health website:
Additionally, please be informed of the second quick response test upon arrival on the Big Island:
New and changing guidelines apply to all domestic & international flights arriving at state airports, including private and commercial aircrafts.
Currently Canada, Japan, and South Korea are the only international travelers allowed to fly into Hawaii under the current Pre-travel Negative Covid Testing program. State of Hawaii approved laboratory testing partners are required.
We continue to follow the guidance from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the protective actions outlined by the Federal, Hawaii State and County governments and Health Departments.
