Bringing Your Pets to Maui

Buyer Heidi Dollinger October 27, 2023

Maui is a rabies-free island and Hawaii is a rabies-free state. The travel of pets is carefully regulated to prevent the introduction of this disease. Bringing a dog or cat to Hawaii requires preparation. Pets can now fly to Maui and avoid quarantine upon arrival IF they meet the specific rules for receiving their rabies vaccines and completing a 30-day waiting period. All dogs need to be microchipped and have proper documentation. Pets will need to be inspected by a certified Maui veterinarian upon arrival. To learn more about Hawaii’s direct release requirements for pets, refer to the Hawaii Department of Agriculture’s animal quarantine site
Before you bring an exotic pet, check to make sure that it is permitted. It is illegal to own a pet snake in Hawaii. Some other prohibited animals include gerbils, hamsters, ferrets, dragon lizards, geckos, snapping turtles, piranhas, monk parakeets, alligators, and toucans. Refer the Hawaii Depart of Agriculture for regulatory guidelines concerning importing animals to Hawaii.
