Hawaiʻi TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS: 

UNVACCINATED VISITORS

Hawaiian culture is rooted in the values of kuleana and aloha. Help us keep you, and Hawaiʻi, safe by responsibly following the new health requirements for your Kauai CPE Vacation on November 8-12, 2021.

If you are an unvaccinated visitor, the Hawaiʻi State and Local travel requirements are demanding and require more effort to complete the necessary tasks for the following travel stages: 

  • Pre-flight Stage
  • In-flight Stage
  • CPE conference Stage 
  • Homebound Stage

If you are traveling to Hawaiʻi as a vaccinated visitor, your requirements are straightforward and require minimal effort to maintain compliance.
