Honduras - June 19, 2020

Honducor advises that postal service across the entire postal supply chain remain suspended in accordance with the government lockdown of the entire territory of Honduras until June 28, 2020, or a later date to be communicated in due course (from admission of international mail at land and sea borders, and at Ramon Villeda Morales Airport in San Pedro Sula and Toncontin Airport in Tegucigalpa). It therefore asks countries that normally send their mail to Honduras by air cargo or commercial flights not to do so for the time being; otherwise the mails will need to be stored in customs warehouses, generating significant extra costs. An exception may be made for humanitarian aid, which Honducor is able to process with the knowledge and prior authorization of the Honduran Government.
In addition, Correos de Honduras is one of the government corporations engaged in restarting the national economy. The smart resumption of normal activities began on June 8, 2020, with the reopening of the Toncontin main exchange office (HNTGUA). It is opening and sorting dispatches received up until the week of March 9 to 15, 2020, and making the items available for collection at the office to addressees who are permitted to go out on that day (based on the last digit of their identity card).
