What happens to my pet upon arrival in Hawaii?

  • Penn Henderson by Penn Henderson
Hawaii Pet Quarantine on the Big island

Once your pet arrives in Hawaii, they will be transported to the Airport Animal Quarantine Holding Facility (AAQHF) by airport personnel for inspection.

They’ll then be relocated into indoor kennels and given fresh water (food is provided at your request).

If they arrive early enough during the day, they’ll be transferred to the main station in Halawa Valley, where they may be eligible for direct release. Pets arriving in Honolulu after 3:30 p.m. will spend the night at the airport facility and either be ready for release the next morning or taken to the Animal Quarantine Station (for unqualified animals).
