Fortunately, most airlines are now offering waivers for tickets purchased on or before March 2. However, if your airline is not offering a waiver and they didn’t cancel your flight and you don’t want to go then I’d would wait until a couple days before to see if the flight canceled and then call to get your money back or a travel voucher.

HAWAII QUARANTINE RULES
Here’s the process for arriving passengers:

  • Prior to landing, all arriving passengers are required to complete an agricultural form.
  • These forms are collected by the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) and information is entered into a database. At the same time calls are being made to the accommodation to notify them of the arriving guest and to confirm their reservation.
  • Visitors are then to report directly to their accommodation.
  • Once at their accommodation, a call is being made to the person’s mobile device or accommodation to ensure they are in their room. If the person cannot be reached after three attempts, that will be reported to the authorities.
  • Visitors are required to quarantine for 14-days or for the duration of their trip if shorter. If they are caught violating the terms of the order, the penalty is up to $5,000 and/or up to a year in jail.

This information is being provided by the Hawaii Tourism Authority.

    Thank, Johnny, I always appreciate your informative posts. I would add the additional cruise lines in the luxury sector, and/or expedition lines as well. Oceania, SilverSea, Regent, Seabourn for example. Also, for the South Pacific, a link for French Polynesia which is requiring a medical certificate to travel no older than 5 days from One’s Doctor, before being allowed to board a flight to Papeete.

    I have shared this article on Facebook. Thank you so much for putting this all together it’s very handy and thorough.

    Thanks for creating the COVID-19 info page. I just forwarded you email out to family, friends, and some of the workers at the California State Railroad Museum. (in Sacramento California). FYI, the museum has added more hand sanitizer stands throughout the 3 floor museum. We do a handcar program for 4th graders studying California history, and now wipe down the equipment before every class.
    Stay safe.
