Currently, when traveling from Japan to Hawaii, it is necessary to clear the entry requirements of the United States federal government. If you meet the entry requirements below, there is no waiting period in the United States.
 
1. Vaccination certificate (over 18 years old)
 
2. Corona test negative certificate (2 years old or older)
 
Although there are exceptions, if you are not a US citizen, permanent resident, or immigrant visa holder, you must basically submit the above two documents.
 
1. Vaccination certificate (over 18 years old)
 
From November 2021, all foreign travelers over the age of 18 will be required to present proof of vaccination against the new coronavirus, based on an executive order announced by President Biden.
 
A vaccination certificate is a vaccination certificate issued by a public institution, and must include the traveler's name, date of birth, product name of the vaccine administered, and date of vaccination.
 
The type of vaccine must be a vaccine approved by the CDC and FDA in the United States, or a vaccine approved by WHO. Or you don't have to worry about the type of vaccine because it is WHO-approved.
 
Currently, it is safe to have a vaccination certificate issued by each local government for overseas travel. For details, please check the URL below.

2. Corona test negative certificate (2 years old or older)
 
In addition, all travelers over the age of two on flights to the United States are now required to present a negative COVID-19 test certificate taken one day prior to departure. This applies to everyone, whether vaccinated or not. "1 day before" here means the day before the departure date, not within 24 hours. Please refer to the list below of inspection agencies that can be received near the airport.

The above is the entry regulations of the federal government, and if you travel to Hawaii by direct flight from Japan, you can travel with only the above documents. However, please note that if you are traveling via the mainland of the United States, you will need the above documents to enter the United States, and you will also need to register for Hawaii's own Safe Travels Program.
