Facts about Honduras Immigration:
Honduras Immigration has a state of the art system that is actually live at its four international airports and all of its border crossings. This means that the government of Honduras knows who is in the country and when they arrived or departed. The system, a “gift” from the USA Homeland Security Department is meant to help the USA figure out who is coming into the region, where they are coming from and what citizenship they have. It has a complete biometric file of each person who entered the country. It achieves this by fingerprinting you and taking an actual photo of you.
Citizens from North America, as well as most of Europe do not require a Visa to enter Honduras. However there are many countries that do. The Ministry of Foreign Relations of Honduras has a full list of countries that do require a Visa to visit Honduras. I encourage you to make check the list in advance!
Normally, the Honduras immigration authorities will give you a 90 day permit to stay in the country. If you are planning to stay longer, you can get a 30 day extension in the immigration offices in Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula or La Ceiba. There is a $20 USA dollar cost for this extension, but keep in mind that you can only get one extension! After this, you will be need to leave the country for at least 72 hours (3 days) before you can return back. In the old days, because of the CA4 treaty, you were had to leave the CA4 territory. This meant that if you where in Honduras you had to travel to either Belize, Mexico or Costa Rica.
This treaty is on standby at the time, and may be put back in place at any time. We will keep you up to date when it does. In the meantime, you can travel to Guatemala, El Salvador or Nicaragua to exit Honduras for three days and then come back. Keep in mind that if you exit to one of the CA4 treaty countries, you will only get 30 days upon reentering the country. You will still have the option of obtaining an additional 30 days permit through the local immigration offices.
If you overstay past your authorized time, you will surely be caught by Honduras immigration authorities as you depart the country. You will then need to pay a fine before you can board your flight out of the country. If this is the case, make sure you have the necessary cash to pay your fine, as you will miss your flight if you don’t! If you happen to loose your passport in Honduras, you will need to file a police report and notify immigration before you can get a passport replacement at your local embassy,
Honduras Immigration Office in La Ceiba
The immigration office in La Ceiba is at the Uniplaza mall. This is behind Diunsa and across the street from the D’antony Hospital. This office is open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. Note that this is also a passport office here, so there are usually long lines. Make sure you ask tell the people you are coming to the “extranjeria” office, there are usually very few people there, and all of them are foreigners!
Honduras immigration Office in San Pedro Sula
The immigration offices in San Pedro Sula are in the Rivera y Compania building. This is downtown on the corner of 3rd Street and 6th Ave SO. The office is in the heart of downtown San Pedro Sula. This is two blocks up from the Municipality building on Central Park and one to the left. The office issues passports to Hondurans, and therefore is usually busy.
Make sure that you let the staff know that you are going to “extranjeria”. This way they will direct you to the immigration officers that deal with foreigners. This same officer deals with the legal foreign residents in Honduras. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. and me best advice is to arrive early! The entrance to the building is actually on 3rd street. Although the area is safe, there could be pick pockets around. Keep your money close to you, do not wear jewelry and take only your necessary documents.
Honduras Immigration Office in Utila.
The Honduras immigration office in Utila Is located adjacent to the Municipal dock. The office is officially open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m till 5:00 p.m. with a lunch break. The break may vary from day to day. You can take care of all your immigration needs here. If you are arriving to Utila from abroad by sea, keep in mind that you will need to visit the immigration office here to get your entry stamp to Honduras. This way you will be legally in the country. The office may be open on weekends, so feel free to stop by and check on weekends! You can get your 30 day extension right here, on the island. This means you do not need to travel to La Ceiba or San Pedro Sula.
Honduras Immigration Office in Tela.
Thanks to the fact that Tela is Port, it also has an immigration office. The office is open Monday through Friday and is in downtown Tela. Find it across the street from the Hotel Ejecutivo in Tela.

If you overstay your visa in Honduras pay the fine and leave can you re enter Honduras after 72 hours
March 20, 2018 @ 9:23 pm
I would like to get information in how my sister in-law can apply for a visa to travel to New York and Houston to visit me and family
March 21, 2018 @ 3:33 pm
Since you are looking for information regarding a visa for the United States, You need to visit the US State Department website where you can get all the pertinent information about getting a tourist visa. That is a US government process and Honduras has no say or input about it. Sorry that we cannot help you!
March 22, 2018 @ 7:45 pm
Is there a booklet (travel book), which contains all the information listed on your site?
March 24, 2018 @ 10:34 pm
No there is no printed version of out website, but you are welcome to print the parts that you are interested in for your own use!

My friend and i are planning to come to Honduras for volunteering/tourism. The problem we have is that coming from Africa, there is no representation of Honduras on the continent.
Please can you assist us with the migration contact where to apply for a visa?
April 19, 2018 @ 2:44 pm
You are not saying what country in Africa you are coming from. I know that South Africans do not need a visa to enter Honduras. Most other countries from Africa do though. You will need to visit a country where Honduras has an embassy to obtain a visa. To my knowledge, Honduras does not have an embassy in Africa, so you would need to visit the nearest one to you. I know that Honduras has an embassy in Israel, as well as in Italy and Spain.

Hello my question is, you mentioned about over staying your entry permit and also about the fine you have to pay. Do you know how much is that fine? I know somebody that is very sick and need to go back to Nicaragua, but his entry permit expired back on October 2017.
June 21, 2018 @ 5:21 pm
From what I understand, the fine is half a minimum wage salary, which would be about 4200 lempiras for the first month, and then an addition 10% per month that has passed. You pay the fine at the point of exit, and I would figure it will end up being close to 10,000 lempiras for this overstay, which is quite long by the way!
June 21, 2018 @ 5:34 pm
I sent my son (6 years old at the time) to Honduras in August 2017 and he is coming back in August of this year. I have been looking online for a possible estimate of the fees I may encounter once it is time to depart. I also wanted to know if there is a way I could pay the fines as soon as I arrive in Honduras instead of waiting until the day of our return flight. It would be even better if I could possibly pay online, but I am not sure if there is an official website where I could do that and if it will provide proof of the fees paid. I really don’t want to have a lot of money on me during my visit and want to pay as soon as I can.
Hope to hear from you soon.
June 24, 2018 @ 4:47 pm
Good morning Leylany!
Thank you for checking in with us. I recently checked with the immigration authorities in La Ceiba, and I was told that the fine for overstaying is between 1/2 a monthly minimum wage and a full month minimum wage. This would be approximately 9000 lempiras at the max. This is equivalent to about 400 US dollars. You will need your child’s passport to pay the fine, which you can pay at the airport as you depart the country. I hope my information is useful!
June 30, 2018 @ 3:13 pm
Will that be $400 each month he was there or in total? I took my son’s passport with me when I left Honduras and will be taking it with me once I leave to go get him. Since I will have his passport at first arrival to Honduras, I was wondering if I could go ahead and pay the fee instead of waiting until departure day.
July 1, 2018 @ 9:01 pm
I understand that it would be $400 dollars in total. But do check in with immigration when you arrive at the airport in Honduras. There is a special booth where they deal with minors, I would check with them and try to get everything settled upon arrival.

I am from the Filipine but live in the Cayman Islands and would live to go on vacation to Roatan would i still need a visa? And how can i go about it? Please. And Thanks.
July 4, 2018 @ 10:04 pm
Good afternoon Carmelina. YEs you need a visa to visit Honduras, even if you are a legal resident in the Cayman Islands. Getting a visa for Honduras in the Cayman Islands is not easy, because you will need to visit a Honduras consulate, and the nearest one is either in Jamaica or in Cuba. If you have a visa for the US, then you will not need a Visa for Honduras, because immigration allows US visa holders to visit Honduras without a visa for Honduras. I hope my information helps you understand your options. HAve a great day and I do hope you can visit both the ISland of Roatan and the mainland of Honduras.
August 19, 2018 @ 1:08 am
I am from the USA and have been coming to Honduras for the last 18 years but have never stayed longer than a month on Mission Trips. I now would like to stay for 6-8 months and need to know if I have to return to the States after 90 days or can I just leave the country for 72 hours.
August 21, 2018 @ 11:08 pm
Hi Barry! First of all, thank your all these years of doing mission trips to Honduras! The most you can stay in the country is 6 months. You will need to exit the country for 72 hours do get a new stamp into Honduras. The trick is that you can not cross into any one of the CA4 countries. The CA4 countries are Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala, in addition to Honduras.

Hello John Dupuis, i am from the United States Currently Staying in Honduras. I’ve been here Since December 2016 and i wanna go back to the U. S due to an emergency… The problem is that i have my visa already expired a long time ago and i wanna know i much do i have to pay the fine at the immigration When i éxit.. December 2016 – October 2018… ( by the way i came to Honduras by Car in the first place .. By land)…
September 6, 2018 @ 2:12 pm
I recently checked with the immigration authorities and I understand that the fine for overstaying is about 7000 lempiras per year. That being said, you will probably be fined about $500 US dollars for your overstay. Please take note that I am not an immigration authority and that the fine may vary depending on your particular case. Good luck, hope your emergency is solved in a positive manner!
September 6, 2018 @ 5:56 pm
$500 = L. 12,000… Sounds like a reasonable price for Me… When i pay the fine at the Honduran immigration at the airport will i be able to come back to Honduras When ever i want… ? ?? ?
September 7, 2018 @ 1:41 pm
Hello, I am a United States citizen and I am currently Located in honduras. I’ve been here for One years and 8 months and my visa expired.

I need to know how much will they charge me to leave Honduras and how much money do I need to carry on me to pay the fine??

Hello, I’m 19years old live in Germany and born in Honduras. I have double citizenship, means a german passport. Can I enter with the german passport to Honduras? Or do I need my hondurian passport? The hodnurian passport is expired since 2 years!
Do I need anything else like a travel consent letter from my parents – due I’m less then 21 years old?
October 22, 2018 @ 5:37 pm
Hello Luisa! I am not an immigration officer or lawyer. However I can tell you that if you come into Honduras as a Honduran you will not be able to leave unless both of your parents accompany you to get a new passport (You say your old passport is expired). Once you have a new passport, you will need to have a notarized authorization by both parents for you to leave. If you come in as a German citizen, you will be given 3 months to stay in in country. My suggestion would be that you arrive as a German tourist. If you are in the country as a German citizen, the law requiring special authorization from your parents to leave the country as a Honduran minor does not apply to you. German citizens do not need a visa to enter Honduras, so this is a straight forward operation for you. Simply arrive to Honduras and present your German passport.
October 31, 2018 @ 8:53 pm
my Uncle was last week in Honduras and asked an immigration officer, and she told him basically the same, but that I’m born in Honduras makes the difference:
Even I enter with the german passport I have to have a letter of consent from my parents, because I’m born in Honduras.
I need a letter with Apostille or something form teh embassy. Now my question is, if I could get such a letter from a hondurian notary without Apostille?
November 1, 2018 @ 2:07 pm
Good morning Luisa! YEs a letter from your parents that is certified by a public notary in Honduras would do the trick without the need for an apostille. The catch here is that your parents would need to both go to the public notary in Honduras to sign that letter of consent. If you a coming to Honduras with your parents, that would certainly be the easiest.
I still think that if you arrive with a German passport and don’t tell the folks at immigration that you were born in Honduras, you would simply pass as a German citizen and not have any problems. But then again, I am not a lawyer…

Hello! I am a Canadian passport holder here in Honduras. I am applying for a permission to stay in the country. I just found out i need to get a criminal check done from Canada as well. Is it possible to get the criminal background check done from Honduras instead of going back to Canada.
November 21, 2018 @ 4:22 pm
Hi there Zahir! I am not an immigration lawyer, as a matter of fact, I am not a lawyer. I believe that you will need a document from Canada. Perhaps you can have someone in Canada request it for you. Honduras cannot get the get that document for you. Good luck!
December 6, 2018 @ 8:26 pm
I will travel soon to Honduras and I’m bringing a desk computer for a friend of mine. How much do I have to pay if any at the airport
December 7, 2018 @ 1:24 pm
Good morning David Martin. I am not an expert on this subject. It is my understanding that there is no import tax on computing equipment, however they may request that you pay the 15% sales tax upon entry to the country. You should make sure that you bring an invoice with you so that you can prove how much you paid for the desktop computer and not be overcharged.
January 6, 2019 @ 3:58 am
Hello! I’m planning on traveling to Honduras in the last week of March. My passport expires in the middle of September this year. Will I be allowed to enter the country?
January 6, 2019 @ 2:01 pm
Hello Paula! As a rule, immigration requires that you have a passport that is valid at least six months past your date of entry into Honduras. From the travel dates you mentioned, you will probably have trouble getting into the country. As a matter of fact, your airline will should deny your boarding to the aircraft, as they are fined when they do not comply with the rules set by the receiving country. I would recommend that you get a new passport ASAP. Please note that if you are coming in on a cruise ship, you will probably not have a problem. But if you are flying into Honduras or crossing the border, chances are that you will not be allowed entry.
January 10, 2019 @ 2:34 pm
John, you seem knowledgeable on this subject. Do you know of anyone being denied entry into Honduras due to an old criminal record in the US? US passport is valid, no travel restrictions, last legal issue was over ten years ago non-violent drug related offence.
January 10, 2019 @ 3:45 pm
Hi M.!To my knowledge, there should be no problem at all. The only thing that I would worry about is if you have an outstanding arrest warrant that has been distributed to Interpol. The Honduras immigration department will assume that if the US allowed you to depart your country, you are free to travel to Honduras, as long as you have a return or on going airplane ticket and your passport is valid for at least 6 months at the time of entry.
January 10, 2019 @ 2:30 pm
Has anyone had an experience being denied entry to Honduras due to an old US criminal record?
January 10, 2019 @ 3:50 pm
Great! No, there are no warrants or outstanding issues. Everything has been cleared up for nearly a decade now! I’ll have return tickets and plenty of time left on my passport. I appreciate the response, I’ve been trying to get info for days and had limited success.
February 26, 2019 @ 3:03 am
Hi John, I’m British and currently teaching in Roatan (2 weeks in). I am due to leave Honduras around 29 March over a land border into Guatemala. I already spent 5 weeks in Nicaragua so by the time I enter Guatemala I will only have a few days left on my 90 day visa. And I don’t leave Guatemala until 23 April – an overstay of around 20 days. I’ve been debating the best way to deal with this but due to finances and convenience, what I really want to do is simply overstay and pay the fine when I leave. From research, I feel this will be significantly cheaper than trying to go to Belize for a few days or pay for a flight to Mexico.
Firstly, do you think I’ll have any problems crossing the border with just a few days left on my visa?
Second, is it likely to be a long and painful process paying the fine at Guatemala City airport when I leave?
February 28, 2019 @ 3:52 pm
Hi Abby! Thank you for reaching out to us! I really can´t tell you much about how it will go in Guatemala. Some countries are stricter that others. My guess is that Guatemala would love to have in the country spending money as a tourist. They may even just give you more time automatically as soon as you enter the country. I assume that if there is a fine to pay it should be easy to do so at the Guatemala City Airport. In any case, governments like to take in fines and make it easy to collect them. I have no idea what the fine would be. I know that in Honduras it would be under $100 US for overstaying a few days. Should be about the same there. Good luck and enjoy Roatan. Sorry I can not be of more help with your question.

Hi I am Indian and want to travel to Honduras, But there is no embassy of Honduras in India, please advice how can i apply for visa or is there a visa on arrival for Indian passport holders in honduras
March 3, 2019 @ 5:03 pm
To my knowledge, Indian citizens do not require a visa for Honduras if they are visiting for tourism purposes. I have received several Indian citizens in our Bed and Breakfast and they had no trouble in Honduras immigration upon arrival to Honduras. The following web page confirms what I am saying: http://visados.com/es/visados-para-Honduras
Hope the information is useful for you!
March 6, 2019 @ 3:51 pm
hello sir, presently i am in honduras on 90 days visa on bases of valid USA Visa. I would like to extent my visa more 2 weeks now. Would it possible in my case?
March 6, 2019 @ 4:55 pm
Hi there Singh!
I understand that everyone can get up to a 30 day extension for their stay in Honduras. You will need to visit the immigration office to do the paperwork. Make sure you do it before it expires, or you will have to pay a fine!
March 11, 2019 @ 5:55 pm
Mr. John Thanks you very much for your advice!
March 16, 2019 @ 2:53 am
We traveled by boat and got a 200 dollar us fine per person for overstaying when there was no immigration official to stamp us out of Utila. There was no immigration official in Utila from March 5th till the 13th. In the future we will be going to Roatan as a port of exit. Utila is not a reliable port of exit.
March 16, 2019 @ 1:26 pm
Hi Steve! Thanks for sharing your experience. Places like Utila, Tela and Copan Ruinas usually have only one immigration officer, so if he is not there, you cannot get the legal entry or exit stamp. Your best bet is always to go to the border or one of the international airports in Honduras. The exception are the cities of Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula and La Ceiba where there is a full service immigration office. Even then, on holidays, that office will be closed, but the offices at the border entry points and airports will always be open.
April 12, 2019 @ 6:41 pm
i am traveling to Honduras this summer. before coming i will be in Ecuador, so I will therefore need a Yellow Fever vaccination to enter Honduras. recent WHO changes say that one Yellow Fever vaccination is good for a lifetime. the old rules say that the vaccination is good for 10 years. so here’s my question:
will i be allowed to enter Honduras with a Yellow Fever vaccination from 2008?
April 24, 2019 @ 12:38 am
Hello Mark! Thank you for following us! I checked with an immigration officer and she informed me that you need a new vaccination applied 10 days before your trip to Honduras. I would assume that would mean at least 10 days prior to your trip. But the reality is that you will not be allowed into Honduras without a new vaccination. I hope that this information is useful to you!

how to renew honduras passport fast
July 20, 2019 @ 12:43 am
Hi Melry! You do not mention if you are in Honduras or in a foreign country. If you are in a foreign country you will need to contact the nearest Honduras consular agent and arrange for a date to obtain a new passport. If you are in Honduras, you will need to go to Banco Atlantida and purchase an appointment and then visit visit the Honduras Immigration offices on the day and time of your pre arranged appointment. I believe that there are passport issuing offices in San Pedro Sula, Tegucigalpa and La Ceiba, so you must visit one of those offices. When you purchase your appointment at the bank you must tell them which office you will visit.
December 22, 2019 @ 4:31 pm
I entered honduras with us passport. For a 4 month stay.now i went to migracion office for extension.but they said i dont need since i was born in honduras.i was born in honduras but dont have honduras passport.im.worry for fine when i leave even tho they said dont nees extension.
December 23, 2019 @ 1:56 pm
Hi and thank you for reaching out to us! I am not an attorney nor an immigration specialist. But the Honduras immigration service has a state of the art immigration data system that was a gift from the US government. They (the USA) want to know who comes into the country and when they leave. If you came in on a US passport, your entry is recorded. Next time you come into Honduras they will charge you huge fine if you manage to get out without paying it now. On the other hand, if you depart as a Honduran citizen, you will need your Honduran ID card. A birth certificate will not do. You will probably have to pay a fine upon departure. The ID card will only be good to travel into Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. For any other country you will need a passport to depart the country.
December 29, 2019 @ 11:48 pm
I called the migracion office a couple times and they said the same thing.dont need prorroga because i have double nationality.maybe you could call migracion office and let me know what they said.
December 30, 2019 @ 10:43 pm
I was at the airport in La Ceiba today and ran into a friend that works in immigration, so I asked her about your specific question. She said that if you can prove you are a Honduran Citizen you will not be fined. Make sure you bring a document to the airport upon departure to prove you are a Honduran Citizen. Your local ID, a Honduras Passport or a birth certificate should suffice!

Hello, I’m wondering if you all can help me to calculate how much I’m going to have to pay for my overstay fine when I leave the country. I arrived in Feb. 17, 2017 and am leaving May 13 2020. I heard they’re going to charge me about 500 US a year. If I use that as an estimate and subtract my 90 day visa I’m estimating I’ll have to pay around 40,620 L or 1,692 US. Does this sound accurate? Thank you for your time. (I am American, but my mother is a Honduran does that give me a discount? lol)
April 27, 2020 @ 8:51 pm
Hi Kuro Koneko Kamen! thanks for reaching out to us! I do not have the fee they will charge you for overstaying. I somehow do not think they can charge you 1,620 US but, then again, I am not an expert. Recently I was told that if you are a Honduran Citizen, you will not be fined, even if you came in as an American Citizen. Since your mother is Honduran, you should be able to register as a Honduran Citizen. Unfortunately with the current Covid-19 crisis, not sure if this is a feasible. But if you can prove that your mother is a Honduran Citizen, you may be able to get your hands on a “get out of Honduras free” card!

Dear John, thank you so much for you speedy reply. My Honduran mother will actually be traveling back to the States with me on the same day, and I do have my original birth certificate with me that shows she’s my mother, so I’ll keep my fingers crossed, and see what happens.
June 25, 2020 @ 5:52 pm
I am currently doing missionary work in Utila with my family. We had scheduled a flight to leave the country after we had stayed for just under three months. However, due to COVID and the lockdown, we now cannot leave the country. I have heard the governor of the islands say that we will not have to pay a fine, however I was wondering if, when things do open up again and we can leave, would we be able to come back into the country again?
Thanks for your time
June 26, 2020 @ 6:35 pm
Hi Joshua! I do not think you will have a problem with departing without a fine due to the emergency. Yes you certainly will be able to come back into the country. Honduras needs people like you that do missionary work and help local citizens. Thanks for all your help!
June 30, 2020 @ 6:31 pm
Thank you so much for your quick reply, I really appreciate it 🙂
It can be very easy to worry during this stressful time but thank you so much for the time you take to respond.
July 8, 2021 @ 3:37 am
hello! my friend is a Honduran citizen living in Nevada. she wants to visit Honduras but her passport is expired. she was never issued a Honduran identity card, since she arrived in the states at the age of 17. it seems this is needed. do you know the procedure of renewing the passport? if the identity card is really required? if it is, how to obtain it? she is also having trouble making an appointment at the consulate in the states.
any information will be appreciated.
thank you all
July 11, 2021 @ 1:14 pm
Hi Jen! I am not really clear on the process. I believe she does need her identity card to get her passport. I think she can request a safepassage document from the Honduran consul in the USA so that she can get back into Honduras, however she will then have to deal with the ordeal of her new id card in Honduras to get a valid passport to go back to the USA. This could take some time, especially since we are getting ready for elections this coming November. IF she does come, she could end up having to wait for two or three months in Honduras to get her documents in order. Can she afford that time in Honduras, away from her work in the USA? I am assuming she is a legal resident in the USA. If this is the case, she might be better off trying to get US Citizenship and then come to Honduras as a US Citizen… just a thought.
July 20, 2021 @ 7:50 pm
Hello! I am a US citizen that wants to travel to Honduras. I am 20 years old, and I notice I need a parent authorization form to enter Honduras. Though, My mom is from there but she doesn’t has a passport nor her ID to travel to a near by embassy to get them authorized. Can I go to a public notary to make the form and get it apostille?
July 21, 2021 @ 4:11 pm
Honduran citizens under 21 one years old require the notarized authorization to exit the country. If you enter as a US Citizen and depart as a US Citizen no special permit is required. Travel to Honduras with your US passport and you will be hassle free.
July 21, 2021 @ 6:31 pm
Even if I travel by myself? it won’t be a problem? Thank you so much for responding!
July 27, 2021 @ 6:43 pm
If you are a US Citizen you should not have a problem, are you 18 years old or older?
July 28, 2021 @ 12:19 am
Yes, I am 20, I just wanted to make sure there was no special requirements before heading out, thank you!
October 23, 2021 @ 10:08 pm
Hello, can you tell me if after I pay my fine for overstaying my visa I will be allowed back into Honduras without any problems? Is it possible that Honduran immigration can deny me entry for a certain length of time?
October 26, 2021 @ 1:29 pm
Good morning Kenneth! I am not an immigration lawyer. However, my guess is that Honduras is interested in you coming back and spending money. If you overstay, they will enjoy collecting the fine and let you go on. It is an administrative case, not a criminal case, so I would not worry about them not letting you in again.
May 10, 2022 @ 11:20 pm
Hi, what steps do I need to take to request dual citizenship from Honduras? For context reference, my parents were born in Honduras. My dad is a Permanent Resident of America while my Mother is a US Citizen. I myself am a US Citizen born in America. What’s the process like? Timing? Price? Appreciate your help.

Hello, I have overstayed my Visa in Honduras and I am planning to leave and pay the fine on my exit. However, my flight transits through Guatemala, will that be a problem, or will they let me transit through toget to Mexico?

Hi GAbby! I am not an immigration expert, but if you are passing through Guatemala airport as a transit passenger, just changing aircraft, you will not be going through immigration in Guatemala, which means that you will not have any problem at all.

To pay the overstay fine does it have to be at the airport you leave from? I’m in La Ceiba, and may leave country through there, someone said they are not set up to do this at LCE. In that case can you pay at the Immigration office? Someone said within 5 days before leaving. If I ended up leaving through SAP and wish to pay ahead in Ceiba is that a problem?
