Hawaii Gov. David Ige (D) on Friday approved a “vaccine passport” program for inter-island travel that could begin as early as May and expand to out-of-state travel by the summer, Forbes reports.
The outlet reports Hawaii is working with the developers of multiple apps including Clear, CommonPass and FirstVitals to help with their pre-flight vaccination verification program. This requirement can be avoided if an individual provides a negative COVID-19 test with 72 hours of departure.
The vaccine passport program is seen by tourism officials as a way to speed up the state’s recovery, Forbes notes.
“Businesses have lost a lot of money during this whole period here so there’s a lot to recoup,” president and CEO of the Hawaii Tourism and Lodging Association, Mufi Hannemann, told local media.
