Travel Safety


Hawaii continues with the state's Safe Travel program.

Beginning July 8, 2021, individuals fully vaccinated in the United States or its Territories may enter Hawaii on domestic flights without pre-travel testing/quarantine starting the 15th day after the completion of their vaccination. All other travelers must have their negative test results from a Trusted Testing and Travel Partner prior to departing as an alternative to avoid quarantine.

Please review all Hawaii state government travel guidance and create an account and fill out the mandatory Safe Travels application. For assistance with login or technical issues, visit the Safe Travels Hawaii Help page for answers to questions about the online application form or issues with the app. with the State of Hawaii Safe Travels online system.

The state of Hawaii will ONLY accept pre-travel test results from Trusted Testing and Travel Partners, Click here for list of trusted testing and travel partners.

Each traveler to Hawaii must be individually registered in the state of Hawaii Safe Travel online database prior to travel to Hawaii. Travelers must receive and upload their negative test results prior to departing for the Hawaiian Islands as an alternative to Hawaii's mandatory 10-day quarantine. Failure to register and upload results will result in delays at the airport and will require a 10-day quarantine. 

If you are not able to show proof of full vaccination or a negative test from one of the approved sources that was taken within the 72-hour period prior to departure, the state of Hawaii will require 10-day quarantine inside your hotel guestroom upon arrival.  You will not be allowed to re-test upon arriving in Hawaii.  Those with test results in a pending status will be required to quarantine in their hotel guestroom for the state of Hawaii's 10-day quarantine.

The City & County of Honolulu has mandated that face masks be worn at all times in indoor public spaces, including throughout the Hale Koa Hotel to include elevators, guest hallways and restaurants. Exceptions to wearing a face covering while inside include when in the act of eating or drinking.

General Safety

Hale Koa Hotel is a military resort property, with Force Protection practices in place. You can check for the latest travel advisories that may affect this area. Also, Hawaii is, of course, surrounded by water. When you explore Waikiki Beach and other beaches around Oahu, please note the posted warning signs and take precautions.

The state owned beachfront at Hale Koa Hotel does not have a lifeguard, so be mindful of water conditions and supervise children at all times. Hale Koa Hotel has free personal flotation vests for children available for guests to check out from the Main Pool area, but you still need to be with young children in the ocean. Also, if you’re going into the water, whether it’s for swimming, surfing, snorkeling or other sport, always go with a buddy. It’s never advised to swim alone in any condition.
