Update on the situation on the Hawaiian island of Maui

We draw attention to the damaged infrastructure on the Hawaiian island of Maui as a result of large-scale fires on August 9-12, 2023, which most affected the city of Lahaina and its surroundings. In the affected parts of the island, normal life is slowly being restored, including electricity supplies and telephone signal coverage. Restoring full functionality will require a longer time.

An employee of the Consulate General of Italy in San Francisco has been working directly at the Maui International Airport since August 13, 2023 and is ready to help citizens of other EU states, including the Czech Republic, in an emergency, especially with the issuance of a EU Emergency travel document in case of loss or destruction of a Czech passport.

In case of emergency, you can contact the consular emergency line of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Los Angeles: +1 310 266 15 39, or the Honorary Consulate of the Czech Republic in Honolulu: +1 808 737 7333.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic recommends travelers to register in the DROZD system.
