Medical brigades traveling to Honduras for mission work are advised that there has been an increase in customs confiscating medical equipment and supplies upon arrival. In advance of travelling to Honduras, U.S. citizens taking part in medical missions to Honduras are advised to complete customs forms, as well as medical clearance forms, at least three business days prior to importing equipment. Contact Aduanas Honduras (Honduran Customs) at www.aduanas.gob.hn and ARSA https://www.arsa.gob.hn/ for information regarding the timeline for customs approval, the forms that are required, and restrictions on the types of medications and equipment that are allowed.
