Passengers should also be aware of the current restrictions about travelling to and from the islands:

Inter-island travellers:
Complete the required Travel and Health form prior to TSA screening.
We encourage you to submit the form online prior to arriving at the airport. If you’re unable to complete it in advance, paper forms will also be available at the airport.

Mainland and International travellers:
The mandatory 14-day self-isolation quarantine has been extended through August for all travellers arriving into the state. Those travelling into the state will need to use the Safe Travels web-based app to complete the required travel information prior to departure.

The state's pre-travel testing program has been delayed to now launch on Sept. 1, 2020. This will allow travellers arriving from the U.S. Mainland to be exempt from the 14-day quarantine by taking a valid COVID-19 test no more than 72 hours prior to their flight and providing proof of a negative test result upon arrival. The mandatory quarantine will remain in place for those who choose to not take a pre-travel test.
