LOCATION: Honduras

EVENT:  Negative COVID-19 Test No Longer Required for Fully Vaccinated Travelers to Enter Honduras

Effective June 2, 2021, The Government of Honduras has updated its requirements for entry into the country.   All travelers must still complete the online pre-check form, but fully vaccinated individuals with their original vaccination certificate are no longer required to provide proof of a negative COVID test upon entry in Honduras.

  • Proof of Full Vaccination:  Passengers must provide the original vaccination certificate documenting complete COVID-19 vaccination (two doses of most vaccines; one dose of Johnson & Johnson) with at least 14 days after receipt of the final dose.
  • COVID-19 Test:   Passengers who cannot provide proof of full vaccination must hand-carry the negative test results for a PCR or rapid test taken less than 72 hours before entry into Honduras.  Passengers must show the test results at check-in.

While there is no COVID-19 test requirement to leave Honduras, the U.S. Embassy in Tegucigalpa reminds all air passengers arriving in the U.S., including U.S. citizens returning from vacation, of the requirement to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within three days of departure.
