COVID-19 PCR Testing Service in Waikiki
Convenient COVID-19 testing service in Waikiki for all out-of-state visitors, including Japanese language support
In partnership with Capture Diagnostics, we are pleased to offer COVID-19 PCR testing services to all Hawaii visitors through our PCR Testing Center located in the Waikiki Shopping Plaza.
The center will support the safe and secure travel needs of all trans-Pacific travelers, with test results available within 12 hours of testing.
All booking and testing services will be provided in both English and Japanese, and we’ll prepare the government-required test result forms and certificates necessary for entry into their country of destination such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, the UK, Germany and France.
In partnership with National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii’s Consortium, the Waikiki PCR Testing Center also offers PCR testing for inter-island travel within the state of Hawaii from Oahu. Starting from May 11th, if a visitor has been vaccinated outside of the state of Hawaii or unvaccinated, you are required to obtain a negative certificate 72 hours prior to departure from Oahu to the Island of Hawaii, Maui, Lanai, Molokai or Kauai to bypass quarantine. The PCR test required for inter-island travel is different from the PCR test required for international entry. Please select the required test when you make your registration.
The Waikiki PCR Testing Center is located on the 4th floor of the Waikiki Shopping Plaza, and will offer an FDA-approved saliva collection test for international entry and a “gold standard” FDA EUA PCR based mid-turbinate test for inter-island travel within the state of Hawaii for COVID-19. The testing center will operate 7 days a week between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM, with last check-in at 4:45 PM.
