How are airline passengers in Hawaii screened?Posted on May 27, 2020 in
The State of Hawaii is announcing a new online Safe Travels system that is mandatory for all travelers beginning Sept. 1, 2020. This new digital system, which collects the required health and travel information, is critical to protecting the health of our residents and visitors alike. Safe Travels is one part of a multi-layered screening process which includes arrival temperature checks and secondary screening for those with symptoms or temperatures of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. Travelers are encouraged to enter their information and trip details well in advance of their flight. Once their health information is entered within 24 hours of departure, travelers will receive a QR code via email. The QR code on their mobile device or printed on paper gets scanned by the airport screener upon arrival. More information on the process can be found by clicking here. A direct link to the program can be found by visiting https://travel.hawaii.gov Passengers completing the process acknowledge they understand the traveler quarantine measures as stated in the Order of Self Quarantine.
