Effective Tuesday, november 24, 2020 - New Policy for pre-travel testing to hawaii


Here's what you need to know

Starting October 15, the beautiful State of Hawaii began its pre-travel testing program, offering guests traveling from the U.S. Mainland to Hawaii the option to avoid a 14-day self-quarantine period. As of Nov. 24, negative test results must be received prior to the final leg of travel into Hawaii. Otherwise, the State of Hawaii requires that you quarantine for 14 days or the length of your stay, whichever is shorter. Click here for more information.


ADL Health has made it easy and convenient for you to take a valid COVID-19 test, in the comfort of your home, no more than 72 hours prior to the final leg of departure and show proof of a negative test result upon arrival in Hawaii to be exempt from self-quarantine.

Please be aware, that without taking a test 72 hours prior to departure, The State of Hawaii has a 14-day mandatory self-quarantine in place for U.S. Mainland or International travelers arriving in the state, as well as for inter-island travelers arriving to Hawaii Island.


Hawaii requires negative test results to be uploaded to the State of Hawaii database. For more information visit travel.hawaii.gov.

More information about the state’s requirements can be found on the Hawaii Tourism Authority’s COVID updates page.

Make sure to take your test over Zoom in the morning and deliver your test to your local UPS Store before the last air pick-up time for the day. Your kit needs to ship out on the day you administer the test via Zoom appointment. Please make sure that your test is dropped at a verified UPS Store, not a drop box or 3rd-party affiliate. Click here to find the closest UPS Store near you.

If taking your test on a Saturday, please verify with your local UPS store that the store has Saturday UPS Air Pickups. Please note, UPS hours vary on Saturday, depending on your specific location.

We advise that you order your test at least one week before you plan on taking it.

Shipping from Maui, Kauai, Hawaii Island, Molokai, and Lanai may require an additional shipping day which may lead to results being provided outside of the 72-hour testing window. Please plan accordingly or consider a different testing solution.

FOR PASSENGERS TRAVELING ON TUESDAYS & WEDNESDAYS: Please note due to no UPS shipping on Sundays and an increase in UPS holiday traffic, we encourage passengers to be mindful of potential shipping delays. Be advised, ADL Health has no control over any unforeseen shipping delays. If you have any concerns and are traveling on either Tuesday or Wednesday, you may want to consider alternative testing options.

Please refer to our terms and conditions as ALL sales are FINAL. ADL Health does not provide refunds for shipping delays.

Shipping outside the United States may require additional fees. Please speak with our customer service team about international shipping.
