Covid-19 Travel Update
As of a week or so ago, Hawaii County is now allowing visitors with proof of vaccination to bypass the second required Covid test upon landing at either the Kona or Hilo airports. That second test upon arrival (provided by the County at no charge) is still required for those who don't have proof of vaccination.
For the time being, everyone is still subject to the State's requirement of a negative Covid test 72 hours before the last leg of your flight from one of the State's trusted travel testing partners. However, the State is working on a vaccine passport system, which they would link to the Hawaii Safe Travels Program, to eventually allow fully vaccinated travels to bypass the need for any testing before they fly in.
Until that time, however, please be prepared to be tested!
As a reminder, you can find all of the information about the travel requirements needed to get to Hawaii (currently you need a negative test result within 72 hours before you board the last leg of your flight, or you'll be subject to a mandatory 10-day quarantine), as well as what to expect once here in Hawaii, by going HERE.
If you plan on going to any other islands while you are here, note that going to Oahu is easy, but any other island requires additional tests. You can find that flow chart HERE.
Please note that if you have a wedding with us, and we discover last minute changes to the program shortly before you leave, we will be in touch with you personally to make sure you have the latest updates!
All of that being said, please rest assured that things continue to look up here in Hawaii. More things are re-opening, and since most of our restaurants are outdoors or open air, dining out feels relaxed, and trips to the beach are relatively carefree!
I'll keep you updated here as things continue to change, hopefully for the better!
