Hours of Operation
Monday – Friday
8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
U.S. Citizens with a valid passport do not need a visa to enter Honduras as tourists for up to 90 days. Passports must have a validity of at least six months beyond your entry date into the country.
It is recommended that you carry your passport or a copy of your passport at all times, so that if questioned by local officials, proof of identity and U.S. Citizenship are readily available.
After entering Honduras, you are also allowed to travel freely across the land borders to Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua without obtaining any visas or entry permits at immigration checkpoints, as part of the Central America-4 Border Control Agreement (CA-4).
The U.S. State Department strongly encourages American Citizens planning international travel to register with the U.S. Embassy in the countries they plan to visit.

Central America Border Control Agreement
Honduras is part of the Central America Border Control Agreement (CA-4). Under the terms of this agreement, citizens of the four countries may travel freely across the CA-4 countries (Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala) for a period of up to 90 days, without completing entry and exit formalities at border immigration checkpoints. This period begins at the first point of entry in to any of the CA-4 countries.
U.S. Citizens and other eligible foreign nationals, who legally enter any of the four countries, may similarly travel across the CA-4 countries without obtaining additional visas or tourist entry permits for the other three countries. Immigration officials at the first port of entry determine the length of stay, up to a maximum period of 90 days.
Foreign tourists who wish to remain in the CA-4 region beyond the period initially granted for their visit (e.g., longer than 90 days) must request a one-time extension of stay from local immigration authorities in the country where the traveler is physically present, or they must leave the CA-4 countries and reapply for admission to the region.
Foreigners “expelled" from any of the four countries are excluded from the entire CA-4 region. In isolated cases, the lack of clarity in the implementing details of the CA-4 Border Control Agreement has caused temporary inconvenience to some travelers and has resulted in others being fined more than $100 or detained for 72 hours or longer.
