Once you receive your negative pre-travel test result, you will need to upload the result to your Safe Travels Hawaii account PRIOR to departure or print out a copy of your negative test result. This step is crucial, as it will be the only means for airport officials to verify your Safe Travel Hawaii information upon your arrival in Hawaii. Failure to do either will result in a 10-day quarantine upon arrival in Hawaii.
