Hawaii pet travel — what you need to know
Moving with pets involves careful planning, especially if Hawaii is your destination. Because it’s the only rabies-free state in the country, their Department of Agriculture enforces strict animal quarantine laws. These aim to protect the well-being of all residents and animals across the islands. Even though there are certain health requirements your pet must meet before they can travel to Hawaii, preparing in advance will make the process much easier.
