In June 2006, Honduras entered a “Central America-4 (CA-4) Border Control Agreement” with Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. Under the terms of the agreement, citizens of the four countries may travel freely across land borders from one of the countries to any of the others without completing entry and exit formalities at immigration checkpoints. U.S. citizens and other eligible foreign nationals who legally enter any of the four countries may similarly travel among “CA-4” countries without obtaining additional visas or tourist entry permits for the other three countries.
While the above may be true on paper, many travelers have reported differently.
To enter Honduras with a vehicle you will need to have the following documents:
- Valid Driver’s License
- Vehicle Import Permit
- Vehicle Title
- Vehicle Registration
- Tourist Form – US$3/person
- Vehicle Import Form– US$36
