So you are finally ready to move to Maui. One problem there is a mandatory 14-day traveler quarantine that seems to have no end in sight. Is moving now even possible? Here are some concepts and information that can help you decide if now is the time.

The latest from the Department of Transportation says:

"Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, at the earliest, trans-Pacific travelers arriving in Hawaii from out-of-state will have the option to get a valid COVID-19 test prior to their arrival, and show proof of a negative test result, to avoid the 14-day quarantine. Evidence of a negative test result must be provided upon arrival in Hawaii. Without this, passengers arriving from out-of-state will be subject to the 14-day quarantine. Travelers will be responsible for the cost of the pre-travel test. No testing will be provided upon arrival at the airport. The Health Department is developing this program, but anticipates requiring an FDA-approved test from a CLIA certified laboratory. The details and requirements are to be determined."

Travel Light - You would be supprised at how little you need here in the tropics. If there is something you think you might want. Store it and see how life on Maui is without it. You may find that you loose interest in it over time. You can alway bring more of your possesions at a later date.

Traveler Insurance - Make sure you have travelers insurance or that your airfare/hotel is exchangeable or refundable.

Buy a Furnished Condo - Many condos are being purchased sight unseen. Realtors have great technology at their fingertips. I personally will do live walking tours with my clients over facetime or Zoom. I can inform them in real time if I notice anything unusual about the place and alert them. Such as a musty odor or loud neighbors. With the slow down of tourism some residents have had to move away from Maui to seek employment. Most people leave behind their furniture when they move to the mainland so often condos are sold turn key with furniture.
