January 19, 2021: Updated Maui County Hawaii State Government Pre-Travel Testing Program
Pre-travel testing enables travelers to bypass a mandatory 10-day quarantine if they are tested no earlier than 72 hours before their flight arrives with an FDA-approved nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), performed using a nasal swab, and can show proof of negative test results from a CLIA certified laboratory.
All travelers must download either the AlohaSafe App or other Google-Apple exposure notification (GAEN) system prior to entry into Maui County. Otherwise enable exposure notification setting on their mobile device
Failure to register with a GAEN system prior to arrival into Maui County shall result in mandatory quarantine, except for any individuals under the age of 18, or who does not possess a mobile device. Only for those who do not possess a mobile device, at least one individual in their traveling party will be required to comply.
Upon arrival proof of registration is required by showing airport screeners or any law enforcement officer the application installed or setting enabled.
If test results are not available before boarding the final leg of the trip, the traveler must quarantine for 10 days or the length of the stay, whichever is shorter. Royal Kona Resort requires proof of a negative covid test be shown at check-in. Please note we will not accept reservations that arrive to the hotel and cannot show a negative or pending covid test.
Hawaii's official tourism website - GoHawaii.com - offers the most current, up-to-date information on traveling to the Aloha State, including details of the Pre-Travel Testing Program.
