In order to best prepare you for your upcoming visit to Oahu we would like to share some updates on the current situation here. In an effort to allow indoor dining, reopening of movie theatres, gyms, clubs and other indoor venues, the Island of Oahu instituted the “Safe Access O‘ahu” program. This program requires all employees of businesses to show proof of either full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative COVID-19 test result every week. In addition, customers must show proof of full vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test taken within the previous forty-eight (48) hours AND matching valid legal identification with the same information as the proof of vaccination in order to enter the establishment. Children under 12 years old are exempt.

Full Vaccination means two weeks have passed after a single dose vaccination or the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccination series which has been authorized for emergency use or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization regardless of whether a COVID-19 vaccine booster has been received.. Proof of full vaccination includes:

  1. a hard copy of a state-approved vaccination card;
  2. a photograph/digital copy of a state-approved vaccination card; or
  3. a Hawai‘i state-approved digital/smart device application confirming full vaccination status (including via the Safe Travels program/application or Hawai‘i SMART Health Card).

As of November 8, 2021, international travelers over the age of 18 must show proof of full vaccination to enter the United States. This means that a United States Customs and Immigration arrival stamp dated on or after November 8, 2021 will be acceptable proof of vaccination for foreign travelers as they have already shown proof of vaccination upon their arrival. International travelers under the age of 18 but over the age of 11 must still present proof of vaccination as they are not screened for vaccination status upon arrival into the United States.
