Honduras is open for tourism from all countries, however, there are a few things you need to know before you depart for your trip. Below we have outlined the entry requirements along with other key information about traveling to Honduras.
One of the prerequisites for entering the country is to complete this online Immigration Pre-check Form.
- Step 1: The Pre Check Form directions are difficult to follow and not entirely in English. Please click here to watch a video tutorial on how to complete the Form.
- The form cannot be submitted until you are within 48 - 72 hours of your entry time. However, we highly recommend that you register on the site once you have a confirmed reservation with us. Then you'll need to wait until you are within 48 - 72 hours of arrival to complete and submit the Form.
- You should complete the form on a desktop or laptop rather than on a mobile device.
- You will receive a response via email; you will need to print it out and carry it with you. You will be asked to show it at the ticket counter when you check-in for your flight into Honduras.
- Handy Tip! To make the form easier to read for the Immigration Office, we suggest you highlight your name, pre-check #, and travel date.
- Step 2: The Epidemiological Health Surveillance Form does not need to be completed. The Government should be updating its website to reflect this change shortly.
- Please use Chrome, Firefox or Edge to review the document. Other browsers may cause issues!
Requirements for Fully Vaccinated Travelers
If you are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and traveling at least 14 days after your final shot, you do not need to get tested for COVID-19.
You will need to present the original, official Vaccination Card you received at your vaccination site.
Requirements for Non-Vaccinated or not Fully Vaccinated Travelers
- If you are not vaccinated or not fully vaccinated, you will need to get tested for COVID-19.
- You will need a negative COVID-19 test, taken not more than 72 hours before you enter Honduras. Travelers must hand-carry the negative test results and show the test results at check-in.
Accepted Tests for COVID-19:
- Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test in real-time.
- Rapid test with a minimum Specificity of 85%, Sensitivity of 98%
What if I recently recovered from COVID-19?
CDC does not recommend getting tested again in the three months after a positive viral test, as long as you do not have symptoms of COVID-19. If you have had a positive viral test in the past 3 months, and you have met the criteria to end isolation, you may travel instead with documentation of your positive viral test results and a letter from your healthcare provider or a public health official that states you have been cleared for travel. The positive test result and letter together are referred to as “documentation of recovery.”
All travelers are required to:
- Wear a face covering
- Maintain social distancing
- Use hand sanitizer when instructed
- U.S. citizens are required to have a U.S. passport with at least six months validity beyond return travel dates.
- Travelers from South America or persons traveling en route from South America to Honduras will be required to show proof of the Yellow Fever Vaccination.
- Residents of all other countries should check with the Honduran Embassy for specific entry requirements.
The COVID-19 Virus has lead to many changes in travel and trip insurance. Please be sure to purchase Trip Insurance either through our trusted provider or your insurer of choice! At present, our recommendation is to purchase either the Travel SE Plan or the Travel LX Plan with our trusted insurance provider, IMGlobal®.
Both plans include a Travel Delay benefit should you contract COVID-19 while on your trip and be required to quarantine in Guanaja. Both plans also include Emergency Medical Evacuations coverage, however, only the Travel LX Plan includes a "Cancel for Any Reason" benefit.
