Honduras – Continuation of lockdown

15 September, 2020


The designated operator of Honduras, Empresa de Correos de Honduras ‎‎(Honducor), asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that, in ‎view of the measures adopted by the Honduran Government through an executive order of 13 September 2020 to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the entire territory of Honduras will remain in lockdown ‎until 20 September 2020 (or a later date to be communicated in due course).

To minimize human contact and protect its workers, in line with government advice, Honducor is not yet able to admit international mail at any of the country’s land and sea ‎borders, or at Ramon Villeda Morales Airport in San Pedro Sula and Toncontin Airport in ‎Tegucigalpa). It therefore asks countries that would usually 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.

Consequently, modified operating hours will continue to apply across the postal network, with an impact on mail sorting, distribution and delivery, as well as timely provision of EDI messages and replies to online customer inquiries.

Correos de Honduras thanks all Union member countries and their designated operators for their understanding.
