A letter from Governor David Ige regarding travel updates for the Hawaiian Islands and Trans-Pacific Travelers:

Aloha,

On Tuesday, June 16, Hawaiʻi will lift the 14-day quarantine for inter-island travel. We encourage residents to safely reunite with family and friends on neighbor islands and help support our kamaʻāina economy.

New Procedures for Inter-Island Travel

Flying between islands will be a different experience. New travel procedures include:

  • Thermal screening prior to departure. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or higher will not be allowed to board the plane.
  • A new, mandatory travel form that can be completed before arriving at the airport will provide health screening and contact tracing information.
  • Arrive early. As we implement these new processes, we ask for patience from inter-island travelers. We recommend arriving early and anticipating additional wait times.

We can open up inter-island travel because of low COVID-19 levels across all islands. We must all continue safe practices to ensure we don’t experience a surge that overwhelms our healthcare capacity.

Plans Underway for Re-Opening Trans-Pacific Travel

We continue to finalize plans to re-open trans-Pacific travel to our state. Our plan will take a multi-layered approach to protect our health and safety. Elements we are reviewing include:

  • Screening to include a form similar to inter-island travel and new thermal imaging cameras at all state airports so we can identify if someone in the airport has a fever-grade temperature.
  • Testing prior to arrival in Hawaiʻi.
  • Travel corridors to markets with low COVID-19 case levels, including Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Australia and potential mainland markets.
  • Contact tracing. We will have 320 new tracers trained by the end of July, which exceeds CDC guidelines.
  • Guidelines for the visitor industry in anticipation of welcoming visitors back to Hawaiʻi.

Until these measures can be finalized and put in place, I have extended the mandatory 14-day quarantine for out-of-state travelers through July 31. I anticipate finalizing our plans soon and will make an announcement in the near future.

With warmest regards,

Act 181, SLH 2017, repealed Hawaii Revised Statues Chapter 514A (Condominium Property Regimes) effective January 1, 2019. Since many developers did not transfer their CPR projects to Chapter 514B prior to this deadline, Act 223, SLH 2019 extends this deadline to July 1, 2020 and clarifies when a project has been transferred. If a developer with remaining inventory misses the July 2020 deadline, they must refile as a new project under Chapter 514B. More information can be found on the Real Estate Commission’s website or in the following brochure:
