WHY

Welcome to Hawaiʻi from our associations and vendors. This site explains why we've taken this "Grass Roots," stakeholder-owned, initiative to "Future Proof" Hawaiʻi from overuse and potential neglect. The Pono Pass™ is provided to assist travelers with the mandatory Hawaiʻi Department of Health requirements and the Hawaiʻi Safe Travel program.
