Could citizens of countries other than the US who have entered Honduras recently chime in on whether they had to obtain a visa before traveling to Honduras? I have been told by one of the Honduran consulates in the US (via an email exchange) that all nationalities besides US need a visa for Honduras. (Well, this was the second version - the first time they told me that everyone needs a visa.) This is at variance with everything I have read elsewhere (including the Honduran Embassy websites for the embassies in Canada and Scandinavia) - which say that many nationalities (including mine) do NOT need a visa for short tourist visits. BTW, I am entering Honduras overland from Guatemala, not flying in - which I would have thought means that I don't need a visa as a result of the Central America Border Control Agreement C-4.
No one is picking up the phone today at any Honduran consulate or embassy in North America that I have tried. Therefore, before I take things further, I was seeking feedback to get a sense of whether what I am being told by my local consulate bears any relationship to what is actually happening in practice.
Thanks very much.
