Covid-19 Update: Current Entry & Exit Requirements

Updated: 2 days ago

Roatán is open!

No need to worry anymore about not being able to jump on a plane and head to our beautiful tropical island. That being said, there are still a few things you need to do before you can drink from that Coconut while floating around in the crystal-clear waters of West Bay Beach.


Entering Honduras

Complete this form no earlier that 48 hours before your arrival time. Before the 48-hour timeframe, you can advance the process by creating an account on the site and getting your username and password. For best results complete the forms on a desktop or laptop rather than a mobile device.

  1. Pre-registration on Honduras virtual platform:

https://prechequeo.inm.gob.hn/


Create a user name and password, enter your information and complete the Precheck Form (Prechequeo), Customs Declaration (Formulario de declaracion jurada de aduana) and the Health Form (Ficha de Vigilancia Epidemiologica de la Salud).


You need to print the precheck and carry with you to Honduras. You will need your Passport, Flight Information, Address of where you will be staying in Roatan, Your COVID Test Results or Vaccination Card. (attached is a PDF to help with completing the precheck form). If you have any issues with the Immigration Pre-check Form website, use this link instead: https://ee.humanitarianresponse.info/x/3LC6FbGX


  1. If you are Fully Vaccinated for COVID-19 and traveling at least 14 days after your final shot, you do not need to get tested for COVID-19 to enter Roatán.

  2. If you are not Fully Vaccinated you will need to be tested for COVID-19.


The COVID test can be either PCR or Rapid test. The test must be done within 72 hours prior to your arrival time in Roatan. You must bring a printed copy, I recommend 3 copies, 1 for Customs in Honduras and some airports/airlines in the USA may keep a copy as well. The COVID test result must be typed out (hand written will not work), it must include the doctor or clinic name, travelers name, DOB, Date of test, date of test result and negative as a result. Highlight your name, DOB and the result “Negative”.


Note: You are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19: 14 days or more after you have received the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca), or 14 days or more after you have received a single-dose vaccine (J&J/Janssen). You must have in hand your Original Vaccination Card given to you at your vaccination site.


Comply with Biosecurity Measures.

This includes:

  1. Wear face coverings correctly.

  2. Maintain social distancing.

  3. Use hand sanitizing gel as instructed.

  4. If you suffer are suffering from symptoms of disease or illness, avoid travel until you improve.
