Hawaii’s Animal Quarantine Laws

Hawaii’s Animal Quarantine Laws

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 introduction 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 states 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 or a 5-day-or-less quarantine. A 5-day-or-less checklist on pages 148-149 has been developed to assist pet owners with that process (also available as a PDF at www.hdoa.hawaii.gov/ai/aqs/animal-quarantine-information-page).

Hawaii Resident Pets: Owners wishing to leave the state of Hawaii with their pets, and return, must meet all requirements for 5-day-or-less quarantine program to return without extended quarantine. The 120-day “pre-arrival” waiting period — after a successful rabies blood test — can be completed prior to leaving the state or can be done in combination with time spent out of state before re-entry.
