Editor’s Note:

There is inaccurate information in this video, the correction is stated below:

CDC requires that all international travelers, US citizens, and non-citizens alike must show proof of vaccination and a negative test results taken within three days. 

Unvaccinated U.S. citizens only may enter the United States by having a negative test within 24 hours of boarding their flight.  

“Our intention is to mirror the CDC requirements for entry into the US to allow entry into Hawaii on direct flights,” said Sheri Kajiwara of Safe Travels Hawaii.
