Animal Quarantine

Hawaii is a rabies free state. Hawaii's quarantine law is designed to protect residents and pets from potentially serious health problems associated with the presence and spread of rabies. Success of the quarantine program is dependent on maintaining isolation of your pet from other animals for the required quarantine period.

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 these animals are required to complete a 120-day confinement in the State Animal Quarantine Station. If specific pre-arrival and post-arrival requirements are met, animals may qualify for a 30-day quarantine or a new 5-day-or-less quarantine that became effective on June 30, 2003. Qualifications for Hawaii residents with pets and reduced "re-entry" fees became effective on February 12, 2004.

For a brochure that contains important information about pre-arrival requirements, quarantine station procedures, policies, rules, operations and fees go to Animal Quarantine Information.

Hawaii Resident Pets: Owners wishing to leave the State of Hawaii with their pets, and return, must meet all requirements on the "Checklist for Hawaii Resident Pets" to return without extended quarantine. The 120 day "pre-arrival" waiting period after a successful rabies blood test is modified prior to leaving the State or can be in combination with time spent out-of-state before re-entry depending on circumstances. Go to Animal Quarantine Information for compete information.
