Honduras to El Salvador

Easy border crossing but it now takes longer because El Salvador make you go through a vehicle scanner (similar to entering and exiting Nicaragua).

Report Check-In

We have now been at the border for 5 hours. They say they have information that a truck with our license number was was stolen. so we have to wait to be cleared by the head of immigrations. Apparently this happens quite often, About once a month. l

From HON to EL SAL: you’ll stop here last on your way from the border into El Salvador.

At the first stop they should do your migration and paperwork for your TIP plus any animal paperwork.

Then they will give you a packet of papers for your TIP to be stamped HERE at this location. It’s a pretty quick stop and the helpers should be free although you do not need them.

Then you’ll show your stamped tip and passports to the migration officer at the main road upon exit and you are good to go. The migration officers wear white shirts.

From Hon to El Sal: easiest border of our whole travel! We arrived late at night, which was no problem at all. They offered us to wait in their office (to enjoy the AC) while they made our copies, and they even offered cold water.. so extremely kind! Good pupusas for sale too.

Very easy and friendly border crossing, leaving Honduras into El Salvador. The main border (both sides) and this extra aduana stop - the whole thing took just over an hour around noon on a weekday.

Exiting Honduras was a breeze.
Entering Salvador with a car was long. Salvador is like guatemala with car permits. When you cancel it, you can't enter the country with the car for 3 months. We were 5 days short and after a few hours of being patient they give us a new permit. They still issue 24h transit permits if you really need to pass. Complicated to find your way around but everybody was nice. If your around lunch time expect delays.

Well, I don't know if it is because we arrived late at the border (4pm?) but we had to come hear to have our temporary permit to enter Salvador. Easy process but can be long.
We had problem to get our paper done, so we stayed overnight, free and safe.
