Importation of dogs, cats and other carnivores into Hawaii is governed by Chapter 4-29 of the State of Hawaii, Department of Agriculture Administrative Rules. This law says that dogs and cats meeting specific pre- and post-arrival requirements may qualify for 30 days, five days or even direct release at the airport depending upon which requirements are met prior to and after arrival in Hawaii.
Please study the requirements for each program carefully as any deficiency or deviation from the stated requirements will disqualify the pet from that program and result in a longer quarantine period such as 120-day quarantine.
You must contact the Hawaii Department of Agriculture with any questions prior to your preparations as no exemptions or discretionary modifications are permitted by Hawaii State Law. For more information, please visit http://hdoa.hawaii.gov/ai/aqs/aqs-info/
