Before traveling to Honduras, it's essential to be aware of the health requirements and advisories. The table below provides vital health information to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip. Stay informed for a worry-free journey.

Requirements Explanation & Consideration for Travelers
Vaccinations If your journey starts or passes through one of the countries requiring yellow fever vaccination as designated by the World Health Organization, you must present a valid vaccination certificate. Proof of yellow fever vaccine is mandatory for travelers arriving from or traveling to Honduras and every nation in South America.
Routine vaccines: Vaccinations against measles, rubella, rabies, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and typhoid are recommended.
COVID-19: While proof of vaccination or negative test results are no longer required for entry, please stay updated on the latest COVID-19 requirements through the Honduras' Ministry of Health website.
Medical Facilities Honduras offers high-quality healthcare services in Tegucigalpa and San Pedro Sula for advanced surgical procedures in case of emergencies.
Call 911 for police assistance.
Call 195 for medical emergencies.
Call 198 for fire and rescue services.
Health Insurance Ensure your health insurance plan provides coverage overseas. Most care providers in Honduras only accept cash payments.
We strongly recommend purchasing travel health insurance that includes medical evacuation.

* Water purity and food safety infrastructure are limited in Honduras, and diarrheal illness is widespread even in large cities and luxury accommodations. Only sealed commercial water containers are considered safe to drink.
* The Gracias a Dios Department is particularly noted for high crime rates. Be careful when visiting the area. The Bay Islands and Copan Ruins are popular tourist areas with lower violent crime rates.
Natural disasters:
* Honduras is vulnerable to hurricanes, heavy rains, and flooding, especially from June to November.
Medication Declare all medications: Declaring any controlled or prescription medications upon arrival is essential.
Original packaging: Keep medicines in original containers with prescription labels.
Prescription or doctor's letter: Carry a valid prescription or a letter from your doctor explaining the need for each medication.
Quantity matters: Bring only a reasonable quantity of medication aligned with your stay duration to avoid complications.
Check for restrictions: Research beforehand to ensure your medications are allowed in Honduras, as some substances are restricted or prohibited.
