Regarding Canadian air routes, we know that Sunwing has canceled through February 2021 and that Air Transat and WestJet are canceled through the end of 2020 (though apparently some people with WestJet tickets are still showing as available / not canceled, so who knows). Canada has also stated that it will be offering international passengers COVID tests as a means to relaxing quarantine rules (which is currently 14 days, not 15 as we incorrectly stated below).

If you plan to fly to Roatán (or anywhere in Honduras) from abroad, please note that:

  1. You need to complete the information on this pre-check form, which includes:

    • immigration form

    • health surveillance form

    • sworn statement relating to the country’s health regulations

    • customs form

  2. You need to present a negative result of a PCR test, or a rapid test with a minimum specificity of 85% and a minimum sensitivity of 98% for COVID-19, in either case from not more than 72 hours before entering Honduras (See June 1st 2021 UPDATE Below)

  3. You must be at the airport at least 3 hours prior to any flight originating in Honduras

More details are here in the (translated) release.

 

As of June 1st 2021

Great News. No COVID Test is Required to enter Honduras if you have been FULLY Vaccinated more than 14 Days. If you are not vaccinated you will still be required to provide proof of COVID Test either Via Antigen Test or PCR test. You will still be required to complete the Pre-Check and Health form. Instead of uploading your Covid test you can upload a copy of your proof of vaccination and are required to carry the original card with you during your travels.

Here is a guide (PDF) to completing the mandatory pre-check documentation, required both entering and leaving Honduras.

Good news for travelers on United traveling to Roatán (RTB) via Houston (IAH).  United Airlines has announced a program to test travelers using a mail in kit ($119). This promises to vastly simplify the process of obtaining a timely, compliant test for visiting the sunny Caribbean!

October 23, 2020 12:20 p.m. (CST)​

In Latin America, Costa Rica has announced that it will no longer require PCR testing for tourists.  Hopefully, Honduras follows suit in a thoughtful manner; after all, everyone wants to remain safe–but bring on the sun, scuba, and monkey lalas, right?!

 

We hope to see you soon on Roatán.

 

Please read through the Covid-19 page for up to date info on the current situation and what to expect in Roatan.

 

VISA REQUIREMENTS

Honduras does not have a travel ban on any nation. The USA, Canada, and the UK are among 84 countries with no visa requirements for Honduras. As always, non-Honduran citizens and Honduran citizens entering from a foreign country will be required to present a passport with at least six months’ validity beyond return travel dates.

 

** NOTE: If you reside in or are traveling en route from South America to Honduras, you will be required to show proof of the Yellow Fever Vaccination as well.
