Hawaii is a popular tourist destination for people all over the world, but do you need a passport to go to Hawaii? The answer somewhat depends on where you are visiting from. In this blog post, we will discuss the requirements for traveling to Hawaii and what you need to do to make your trip as smooth as possible!
Domestic Visits From The US Do Not Need Passports
If you are visiting from within the U.S., you do not need a passport to travel to Hawaii. You can use your driver’s license or state-issued ID card as long as it is up-to-date and has your current address on it.
You Do Need A Passport To Visit Hawaii From Out Of The U.S.
If you are not an American citizen, you will need a passport to travel to Hawaii. This is because Hawaii is considered international travel by the US government. In addition, you will need a visa if you are staying in Hawaii for more than 90 days.
Other Potential Travel Restrictions
Some issues you may run into while traveling to Hawaii are COVID-19 restrictions and volcanic activity that may delay/postpone your trip. Be sure to carefully research your local restrictions and Hawaii guidelines for traveling during COVID.
While not common, sometimes flights can be canceled due to heavy volcanic activity and ash in the air. You should be well aware of this before you fly but it doesn’t hurt to keep an eye out for anything that may ruin your trip. Enjoy your stay in paradise.
