Reconsider travel to Honduras due to crime. Some areas have increased risk. Read the entire Travel Advisory.
Do not travel to:
Gracias a Dios Department due to crime.
Violent crime, such as homicide and armed robbery, is common. Violent gang activity, such as extortion, violent street crime, rape, and narcotics and human trafficking, is widespread. Local police and emergency services lack sufficient resources to respond effectively to serious crime.
The Department of State will provide updated information on adoption.state.gov as it becomes available.

With reference to the Adoption Notice dated July 1, 2019, the Honduran Central Authority has confirmed that it will continue to process certain adoption cases that were started prior to July 1, 2019, under the non-Convention process (or orphan process) as “transition cases.” These cases include those in which a U.S. citizen filed a Form I-600A, Application for Advance Processing of an Orphan Petition, or a Form I-600, Petition to Classify Orphan as an Immediate Relative, prior to July 1, 2019. The United States will continue to coordinate with Honduran authorities on issues related to “transition cases.”
If you obtained a final adoption of a child in Honduras prior to July 1, 2019, you may be able to use the orphan process to process your intercountry adoption.
We are in the process of updating our Country Information Sheet for Honduras. Please continue to monitor adoption.state.gov for updated information as it becomes available. If you have any questions about this notice, please contact the Office of Children’s Issues at firstname.lastname@example.org.
