IPATA is not responsible nor liable for travel being denied due to the lack of the appropriate visa and any registration fees paid will not be refunded. However, an attendee may register for a meeting and if the consulate or embassy denies their visa prior to the start of their travel, then a refund of registration fees may be possible; please email for details.

Beginning March 26, 2022, there will be no COVID-related requirements for arriving domestic passengers. Travelers arriving in Hawaii directly from international airports must still comply with U.S. federal requirements(link is external); consult with your airline.

  • The federal mask mandate ended on April 18, and masks are no longer required in airports. Many airlines have also relaxed their mask rules and it’s now optional to wear on a plane.
  • Hawaii’s indoor mask mandate ended on March 25, 2022. Masks are still strongly recommended for people over age 65, those with compromised immune systems or who care for people at risk of severe illness, and those unvaccinated for COVID-19.
  • Some businesses may still require or encourage the wearing of masks.
