What You Can Bring

What Can I Bring into Hawaii?

Flying to Hawaii is different than traveling to many other destinations. According to the Hawaii Biological Survey, Hawaii is the “endangered species capital of the world” with more endangered or threatened species per square mile than any other place on the planet. Please kokua (help) us in protecting our unique environment, agriculture and communities.

During your flight to Hawaii, you will be required by state law to fill out an Agricultural Declaration Form to declare all plants, plant parts, seeds, animals, microorganism cultures, soil, and related containers and packing materials in your carry-on and luggage.

Plant quarantine inspectors will be stationed in the baggage claim area to examine all baggage and agricultural items.

On the back of the form, you’ll see a survey for the Hawaii Tourism Authority. Please fill it out as it helps us provide better service for our visitors.
