Customs Procedure for Moving Household Goods in to Republic of Honduras
Hondurans returning after 12 months abroad, Diplomatic personnel and users of International organisations are eligible to a free import permit or Franchise (Dispense). Client, through a lawyer after arrival, must secure this franchise but shipment may be held at customs or S.I.T. in bond, with extra charge. If no franchise or resident permit is available, client will have to secure at customs a very high guarantee, as all articles would be assessed. A customs inspection is mandatory and is usually performed at customs site; however, it may also take place at client's residence for his/her convenience or at agent's warehouse for an extra fee.
