The country has extremely high levels of security risk due to gang violence, crime and civil unrest in some parts. Along the border with Guatemala and El Salvador there is often a higher level of criminal activity and violence, so we advise only using the official border crossing points if necessary.
While in the country, special care should be taken with personal belongings and luggage, no travelling at night, no carrying valuables, and only staying in pre-screened, high security hotels.
Consume mainly bottled water. Do not buy food from street vendors. The fruit should be eaten after washing thoroughly. Vaccines — there is no set requirement for vaccines.
Since the beginning of 2019 Central American countries (Panama, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Belize, Costa Rica, Mexico) have seen a sharp increase in the number of people infected with Dengue disease, which is transmitted after mosquito bites.
The situation is most serious in Honduras, where there is a country-wide Dengue epidemic. About 80% of Dengue victims are children under 14 years of age.
In order to avoid possible infection with the disease, Bulgarian citizens travelling in the region should take all possible measures to prevent mosquito bites, such as wearing body covering clothing, using mosquito repellents and nets, avoiding places with a higher risk of contracting the disease.
Some of the main symptoms of dengue are high fever, dizziness, vomiting, rash and weakness. With complications, especially in children, blood begins to flow from the nose, constant vomiting, red eyes, urination of blood and mental deviations are observed. In the presence of the above symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately.

Certifications and legalizations
Honduras a party to the Hague Convention for the certification of public documents with an Apostille. When submitting public acts from Honduras to Bulgaria and from Bulgaria to Honduras, it is required that the documents certified with an Apostille be translated into the respective language and the translation must be certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Honduras or its diplomatic or consular mission.
The procedure for the certification of documents from Honduras intended for the Republic of Bulgaria is the following:
- the document shall be certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Honduras;
- this is followed by a certification of the Embassy of Mexico in Honduras;
- certification by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico;
- certification by the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Mexico, accredited for Honduras.
Once the public document has been provided with an Apostille, the translation can also be carried out in Bulgaria according to the established procedure.
Issuance of identity documents
Since the beginning of 2012 the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Mexico has been equipped with a biometric data capture system allowing the acceptance of applications for new passports.
Any Bulgarian citizen residing in Honduras may submit an application to our Embassy in Mexico for the issuance of a passport, an identity card, a driving license and an Emergency Travel Document.
A birth certificate must be presented when the first identity card is issued. A police document verifying the relevant circumstances must be presented if the identity card and/or passport is lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.
The local birth certificate of the child, bearing an Apostille, and the presence of both parents is required in order to issue an Emergency Travel Document for children born abroad. For the issuance of an Emergency Travel Document to return to Bulgaria in case of lost/stolen documents, a report from the police stating the relevant circumstances must be presented (theft, burglary, robbery, etc.).
