Travelers who want to visit some of the country’s most beautiful places will have to brace themselves for a significant increase in restrictions.
Travelers visiting the Hawaiian islands will have a two-week limit to travel within the state.
The two-day limit will be lifted for travelers who fly from Hawaii to the US, the Philippines, or the Caribbean, and the three-day restriction will be extended to Hawaii for travelers traveling from New Zealand to the island nation.
The island nation also will have its own travel restrictions for international travelers.
On the other hand, those visiting the Palau Islands, the home of the islands’ capital, will have their travel restrictions lifted for a maximum of three days.
The ban will apply to those visiting a hotel in Palau, the island that houses the capital and most of the island’s population.
Palau’s capital city of Manau is currently the capital of the Republic of Palau and is the only city in the world that is not a member of the United States.
However, the United Nations has designated the island as a Special Administrative Region (SAR), which means the US is not bound by the restrictions.
While Palau will continue to have its restrictions lifted once the two- and three-week limits are lifted, those traveling from the island will not have a one-week extension.
The three- and four-day restrictions will remain in effect.
