So you REALLY want to come to Hawaii!
Trust me, you are not the only one. The latest rules have pushed the 14 Day Quarantine to October 1st, 2020. No one knows when the State will finally work out the details and process in which testing can be done and tourists will be allowed to return to the islands. Many people believe it will be pushed back again (and even again).
The have finally (6 months into it) come up with a more efficient and electronic way to process arrivals and keep up on quarantine rules. The website Travel.Hawaii.Gov is now operational. Each traveling adult will need to create their own account and fill out the required paperwork, this includes your personal information as well as length of stay, where you will be staying and also they will confirm your cell phone contact information. Then 24 hours before your travel, you will need to fill out a health questionnaire. You will be given a QR code for the airport personal to more quickly process you. Then you will be required to check in everyday on the app (or really website) to confirm that you obeying the quarantine rules. Once the 14 days has passed you will be free to go about the island. This is all under the current rules and regulations.
It is unknown (to us regular folks AND to the government officials all the way around) on how or what they will do when we finally allow visitors back to the islands. Wether it be a negative Coivid-19 test before you leave, or a quick spit test once you arrive, I look forward to welcoming back all the amazing people I have met over the years and the new ones in the future. Hang in there. We'll get through this, hopefully sooner than later. You can view the video below to help visually walk you through the process of the new website and quarantine process.
Lastly, when you finally do come back be prepared for differences. Many businesses here on Maui and the other island have already closed their doors for good, and many more will. If you have any way of supporting them please do so. It so sad to see people losing everything they have worked for at no fault of their own.
