Is there a time limit for when the documents need to be received by the State?

Yes, if arriving in Honolulu, the Animal Quarantine Station must receive the documents at least 10 days prior to arrival.

If arriving to  Kahului, Kona, or Lihue, the pet owner is required to submit the AQS-279 form, 2 most recent rabies vaccination certificates, and payment to the Animal Quarantine Station (AQS) at least 30 days prior to arrival in Hawaii. The pet owner must also schedule an inspection for their pet at an approved clinic for AFTER they arrive. Once the AQS receives documents and the pet qualifies, they will email the pet owner a Neighbor Island Inspection Permit (NIIP) that will be required for them to board the airplane.
