I don't know, but you should be able to find an answer on the State website...

Default yes you can bring your rabbits

the laws in Hawaii say that ONLY carnivores, including dogs and cats must go through the quarantine process. I don't know if there is something instead of quarantine that must be done for rabbits though. But I do know that while rabbits and Belgian hares are allowed to be brought into the state wild hares are not allowed to be imported.

Rabbits:

*
Require a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI), also known as a health certificate. The CVI must be issued and signed by a State, Federal, or accredited veterinarian within seven days prior to arrival in Hawaii.
*
The CVI must list and give a description of the rabbit(s) in the shipment, must state that the rabbit(s) were not showing signs of infectious, contagious and/or communicable diseases and were found free of external parasites.
*
Rabbits are required to enter the State only through the Honolulu International Airport where they are required to be submitted by an agent of the airline carrier to the Airport Animal Quarantine Holding Facility for inspection. Hours of inspection are 7:45 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
*
Once inspection is complete and all entry requirements have been met, the rabbits may be released to the importer

The original post was from 2007, but for anyone else thinking of bringing rabbits to Hawaii or already have rabbits here, I've heard there will be a rabbit club starting on the Big Island sometime between the end of the year and early next year with a rabbit show at some point early next year, too. I'm raising English Angora rabbits, so that's good news for me.

A rabbit club -- very cool! My wife and I hope to move to the BI in a few years (Hilo is her home town), and we have four Belgian lionhead rabbits that are statistically likely to still be alive, and that we couldn't bear to leave behind. I looked into this a while ago, and there are two airlines I found that let you transport rabbits (Delta and United? I can't remember, because we don't need to do this any time soon). One lets you take one rabbit (or other small animal) per passenger as a carry-on in a transport container. The other airline makes you put them in the cargo area where dogs go.

Thanks for the airline information. Perhaps I'll be able to talk my brother into bringing me a rabbit when he visits this winter. Most mainland flights go through Honolulu and it would be nice to get some new genetics on island.

When you bring your rabbits, you may want to bring several unrelated pairs so you will be able to breed more of them. There are quite a few New Zealand White and crossbred rabbits folks are raising for meat. There are also a few pet rabbits, but I haven't a clue how many purebred Belgian lionhead rabbits there are here. Perhaps if we have a rabbit show we will be able to find these things out.

Do a double check, United does not allow rabits at all incabin on their flights. You may be able to sneak it on if they think its a cat, but get caught and they will force it into cargo.
Delta does alow rabbits in cabin but not on flights to Hawaii.
Right now, no airlines alowes any animal (except service animals) incabin on any flight to Hawaii.
Always check current airline regulations not what happened before.

Unfortunately (or maybe not), our rabbits are all spayed or neutered. My wife rescued from someone who couldn't keep them two young rabbits that she was told were both males. (It's hard to tell before they're fully grown.) A few months later, we learned that the former owner was half right: one of the "guys" gave birth to three babies. We intended to give them away once they were weaned, but once you name them, they become family. We knew little about rabbits in general and had never heard of Belgian lionheads, but it turns out that they're a very friendly breed and love to interact with humans. The only downside is that they shed constantly and profusely. (The "dust bunnies" in our house are made from genuine rabbit fur.) Sadly, the father died this summer from unknown causes -- we suspect a genetic heart defect, based on what we read. They're wonderful pets, but actually breeding rabbits would be more work than we'd want to take on.
