Thanks to an agreement between the Confraternidad Evangelica de Honduras (Evangelical Fraternity of Honduras) and Honduras' Secretary of the Interior, obtaining temporary residency for missionaries is now a much simpler, faster, and less expensive process. As Honduran Fellowship is a member of the Confraternidad Evangelica, we can now provide this legal service for our members.
Under this agreement, the legal process can be done without hiring a lawyer. Missionaries who become members of the Honduran Fellowship of Missionaries and Ministries receive the benefit of a member of our staff walking an applicant through the process and spending the necessary time communicating with immigration on behalf of the missionary. There is an administrative fee of $800, plus $40 per adult which covers the cost of a background check. If the couple has children, an extra charge of $50 per child is collected for the translation of documents. A fee of $101 per person per year of residency requested is paid to the Department of Immigration. (Missionary residency can be from 1-5 years.) All fees are to be paid up-front to HFMM.
Current law states that with a missionary residency, regardless of how many years are purchased (usually 5 is the best), a constancia must be presented each year at the time of renewal from the NGO serving as the covering for that missionary. Honduran Fellowship can provide this documentation for our members.
