On January 12, 2021, CDC issued an order requiring all air passengers arriving to the US from a foreign country to get tested no more than 3 days before their flight departs and to provide proof of the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight. This Order will go into effect on January 26, 2021.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) order effective January 26, 2021, requiring all travelers entering the United States from any location outside of the U.S. to present a negative COVID-19 test result 72 hours prior to departure.
We are sharing the information we have at this time and are closely monitoring the situation.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE CDC TESTING REQUIREMENTS
According to the CDC, air passengers entering the U.S. will be required to present documentation of a negative COVID-19 viral test (called a Qualifying Test) conducted within the 3 days before their flight to the U.S. departs.
Alternatively, passengers may provide documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 with documentation of test results conducted during the 3 months preceding the flight’s departure from a foreign country.
Finally, all airline passengers will be required to present a simple CDC attestation form to the airline for collection prior to boarding.
Resorts are offering testing on property or assistance to nearby test sites. Many are offering free testing and extended stays if you test positive during your visit. We will be communicating important information with you on this page, and will regularly update it as information is received. See PDF below.
The report stresses that other layers of safety measures must be present, including:
All travelers ages five and over will be required to take a Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) from a certified Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) lab in order to bypass the State of Hawai‘i’s 10-day mandatory quarantine.
The State of Hawaiʻi will accept test results ONLY from TRUSTED TESTING AND TRAVEL PARTNERS.
The test will need to be taken no more than 72 hours before your flight departure time. If you have a multi-city flight itinerary, the departure time is from the last city you leave before arriving at a Hawai‘i airport (e.g. if your travel is from Chicago to Seattle to Honolulu, the departure time to look at is your flight from Seattle).
Once you receive your negative pre-travel test result, you will need to upload the result to your Safe Travels Hawai‘i account. This step is crucial, as it will be the only means for airport officials to verify your Safe Travel Hawai‘i information upon your arrival in Hawai‘i.
The negative test result must be uploaded onto the Safe Travels Hawai‘i account prior to departure or printed out prior to departure and hard copy in hand when arriving in Hawai‘i. Failure to do either will result in a 10-day quarantine upon arrival in Hawai‘i.
If you receive an indeterminate result or inconclusive result prior to departure, you will be placed in 10-day quarantine upon arrival.
Upon your completion of the form, a QR code will be emailed to you for each leg of your trip, which you need to present to airport personnel upon deplaning in Hawaiʻi. The QR code can be either on paper or on your mobile phone, and must also be presented with a legally valid photo ID. Obtaining your QR code(s) for Hawaiʻi airport processing PRIOR TO departure will significantly reduce your arrival airport screening.
If your test results are not yet available when you arrive in Hawai‘i, you will need to quarantine at your accommodations for 10 days.
